Boys' rental equipment - pick up sessions

14U, 12U, 10U, and 8U players who have registered to rent equipment for the 2017 season may pick up their rental equipment at either of the following rental sessions:

 

(1)  Wednesday, 1/25/17  5:30-7:00 pm

(2)  Saturday, 1/28/17  9:00-10:30 am

 

Rental equipment pick up sessions for 6U players will be scheduled at a later date.

 

Equipment pickup will take place at the VYI Equipment Annex, which is the small brick building located behind the Vienna Community Center (next to the bike path).  Due to the ongoing construction at the Community Center, access to the annex is via the path from the parking lot of Vienna Elementary School (VES) (the path that follows along the perimeter of the softball fields).  As you approach the annex building from the VES parking lot, the door to the lacrosse equipment room will be on the left side of the annex building.

 

Players MUST be present to receive their equipment.  In addition, each player must bring a $200 security deposit check (made payable to "VYI Lacrosse").  The security deposit check will be returned when the rental equipment is returned.

 

For those that will be attending the Wednesday night session, please bring a flashlight to light your way along the path!

 

Any questions, please contact Barry Gaston at bg53race@aol.com.

Concussion Awareness & Information

VYI Parents:

Concussion awareness is a growing topic in youth sports. In support of our athletes, VYI Lacrosse is providing an overview of concussions to both raise concussion awareness and also instill knowledge about the symptoms and risks of concussions across our coaching staff and parent community.

Please take a few minutes to review the information, which includes signs and symptoms of concussion and return to play risks and guidelines.

Parents are also encouraged to visit the "Heads-up" page on the CDC website to review concussion information and symptoms:
