Who Can Play?
Reston Youth Association’s (RYA) Youth Flag Football for Fall 2018 is open to boys and girls from ages 5 to 17. A child’s eligible age for the fall season is determined as of October 1st.
What are the Fees?
Every effort possible is made by RYA’s Youth Flag Program to keep costs low, while maintaining excellence in youth sports. The 2018 Fall Flag fees are as follows:
First child: $100
Note: A $10 late fee will be applied to all registrations after 9/1/2018
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 Fall 2018 Flag assessments will be announced soon. All registered players must attend one of the assessment sessions in order to be placed on a team.
Where and when will we practice?
All games and practices will take place in Reston, VA. Teams will practice for one hour per week, sometime between 6pm - 8pm on a weeknight. The exact day and time will be provided by your child’s coach once teams are formed.
When do the games start?
The first regular season games will most likely take place in September. Games continue through October.
What is the refund policy?
Teams will be created after our skills assessments in September. After this date, all refunds will be charged an administration fee. After games begin no refunds will be given.
