Welcome to the Vienna Youth, Inc. (VYI) Lacrosse home page. VYI Lacrosse participates in the Northern Virginia Youth Lacrosse League (NVYLL). The purpose of the NVYLL is to provide the youth residing within the geographical boundaries of northern Virginia a healthful, enjoyable leisure time activity and as a corollary to develop qualities that may help them in later life, sportsmanship, team play, and integrity.
All players must be registered in order to attend assessments. Keeping in mind that the purpose of assessments is to give coaches the chance to observe and evaluate, players should try to attend as many assessments as possible.
Individual assessment sessions may be cancelled or rescheduled at the coaches’ discretion. Further, weather is always an issue at this time of year. Any changes to the published schedule will be announced on the home page of VYI Lacrosse.
Note: The NVYLL does not have a GK/2 “A” division.

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:
