Nick Haitz - NVFHOF Player of The Year

Reston Youth Association would like to congratulate Nick Haitz as this year's recipient of Northern Virginia Football Hall Of Fame Player of The Year.  Nick spent 5 years with RYA with 4 of those years suiting up as an American player.  Nick played on both sides of the ball and terrified Quarterbacks and Linebackers alike with his speed and power!  Nick was a leader on and off the field as a frequent team captain and in the community volunteering his time around Reston to “Cornerstones Hope for Tomorrow Today” Homeless Shelter and Reston Association and WO&D "Adopt-a-Trail Cleanup”.  Nick will attend South Lakes this coming Fall and we wish him continued academic and athletic success!

GO Nick!

Information about Walker-ID

RYA Families,

As we finish the school year and move into the summer, we wanted to remind parents that each player must have an active Walker ID card to play tackle football in the Fall.  All players must have a valid Walker ID card issued by the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles.  The ID cards are used to verify each player at the official Fairfax County Youth Football League weigh-in certifications that will take place in August. Receipts from the VA DMV will not be accepted.

These identification cards are no longer issued by the DMV in person. It will be mailed to your home within 7-14 business days. So the earlier you can get this done the better.

Please ensure your child’s name, address and date of birth are 100% accurate on the ID.  If you already have a Walker Permit please check the expiration date.  If it has expired you will need to renew it. The cost of the permit is $10.00.

For further details visit a DMV location or go to http://www.dmv.state.va.us/drivers/#id/child_id.html

If you have any questions about the tackle program please contact commissioner Jeremy Lee at commish@restonseahawks.org
