How do I register?

What equipment do I need to bring?
Only a mouth guard is required to participate in the practices and games. Football cleats are encouraged, but not required. Your registration fee includes a team jersey and a set of flags.
How do you keep the teams “even”?
We want the league to stay competitive and evenly matched so that all the players can enjoy the game of flag football. Before the season starts we will hold an assessment that rates players with the goal of placing them on the most appropriate team. The kids will perform agility and speed drills that help establish their current athletic ability.
The dates for Spring 2019 Flag assessments will be announced soon. All registered players must attend one of the assessment sessions to be placed on a team..
How can I request my kid to play with their sibling, friend, or coach?.
Please mention any special requests during the registration process under special requests. We will try our best to honor your request, but we cannot make any guarantees..
What are the age divisions?.
We have 4 age divisions (subject to change based on the number of registrations received and the age of players)

Do you need volunteers?
Reston Youth Association is an all volunteer, non-profit organization. We depend on community and parent volunteers to be coaches, assistant coaches, and referees. If you would like to volunteer as a coach or assistant coach please register at www.restonseahawks.org/registration If you would like to volunteer as a referee, please contact email@example.com
In addition, all head coaches receive one free registration (for their own child), based on the # of teams they coach for the Spring 2019 season. For example, if you are head coach of two (2) teams this season and you have two (2) children – then both of your children will play for free this season.
