Welcome to the Reston Youth Association Registration System! Please read each program's description before selecting a program and beginning the registration process. 
 

 
Registration for the 2019 Sports is now OPEN.

 

Thank you for choosing Reston Youth Association (RYA) to be a part of your family.  Beginning in January 2012, a new Board of Directors began to lead the organization with the goal of providing the best possible environment for your family and the community.  We looked at the history of our program and started making plans for the future as an all-volunteer, not for profit organization. The realization of that goal will be supported through the efforts of the newly elected 2019 board.  On the field our coaches are trained in the latest techniques and safety and we implemented new rules to limit non-game day contact of players.  Off the field RYA worked with the county and local organizations to bring turf fields to our area.  This summer two new turf fields were installed at South Lakes High School Stadium and at our current practice grounds of Langston Hughes Middle School!  The addition of lights at the Langston Hughes field will provide added safety as we practice late into the Fall.  

With all these changes we find it necessary to set the registration price to begin to recover the cost of some of the items mentioned above.  The 2019 registration fee covers the cost to replace or refurbish player equipment, equipment for coaches, repayment of the turf loan, fees to FCYFL and the county and a portion of our overall operating costs.  The remaining operating cost is covered through fundraising.
 

 
2019 Tackle Football

Reston Youth Association (RYA) is a member of the Fairfax County Youth Football League (FCYFL). FCYFL plays American-style full contact tackle football using modified high school football rules.

Registration is open to boys and girls age 7-16 as of October 1, 2019.

Under the new rules revision for the 130 and 155 lb weight classes, 12 year-old players weighing in excess of 150 lbs and 13 year-old players weighing in excess of 175 lbs cannot play in a position that normally handles the ball on offense. 

Any player at the 130 lb weight class turning 16 years of age during the season (Oct 1 - Dec 31) will be required to play at the 155 lb weight class. 

Any player at the 155 lb weight class who will turn 17 years of age during the season (Oct 1 - Dec 31) will not be eligible to play in the Fairfax County Youth Football League.

16 year old players may not turn 17 years of age prior to December 31, 2019.
