Basketball

The Fairfax County Youth Basketball League has decided to move forward with their 2021 Winter Season with COVID-19 protocols in place.  We held tryouts recently for boys basketball outdoors at SCMS.  

The FCYBL will begin practice the week of January 4, 2021. Games will begin the weekend of January 16-17, 2021. There will be an 8-week season, with one playoff game in March. COVID-19 precautions will be included.  Rec Basketball will take place in the Spring.

Field Hockey

SCAA Field Hockey will be holding Winter clinics for Middle and High School players.  It will be a combination of skills, scrimmages, and conditioning to prepare for the February High School Season.  Registration is coming soon.

Soccer

SCAA Soccer staff wants to thank all of the families that participated over the Fall season for Rec and Travel Soccer.  We had a successful season despite the pandemic times.

As a token of our appreciation we are offering a holiday discount for the Rec players for the Spring season.  Between now and January 15 registrations will be $99.  After January 15th registrations will go back to $125 per kid.  Please note that these prices do not include uniforms.  This can be a great stocking stuffer.

Happy Holidays to you all.

Boys Lacrosse

Boys Lacrosse has had a fun and safe Lacrosse 2020 season.  We have been able to hold U10 through U14 skill development clinics.  And have been able to participate in the Fall Brawl 2020 tournament and the St. James Winter Lacrosse League.  Thank you to all our families and players for supporting our Boys Lacrosse Program.

Girls Lacrosse

The SCAA Girls Lacrosse program has been staying active in the fall and winter. The winter SCAA Sunday scrimmages and clinics will continue through January. The condensed spring season registration will open in January. Please feel free to reach out to Amy Coffin with any questions.

Girls Lacrosse Sunday Scrimmages

Wrestling

Normally the season starts practices in early November when respective counties release facility space.  Practices generally coincide with the Virginia High School League (VHSL) season and start in November.  VHSL announced that the first high school practices will begin December 14, 2020.  County parks and recreation offices delayed access to facilities by youth sports programs until January.   Clubs that use private facilities will start earlier commensurate with VA State guidelines.  VHSL imposed severe restrictions on high school wrestling practices starting December 14th. 

 As a result, NVWF Executive Committee determined it best to delay the youth wrestling program until after the holidays based on recent guidelines by VHSL and NVWF Parent/Coach/Manager surveys Sshowing most clubs depend on access to public schools for practices.  A meeting will be held after Christmas to determine the status of sports in the area.   

Registration for practice ONLY will be considered about middle of December once HS wrestling as a chance to exercise protocols safely in the wrestling room at South County HS.

Football

Football had a successful Fall and will continue with both flex and flag in the Spring.

Ice Hockey

Halfway through the Ice Hockey season, the South County/Hayfield team sits 2-3 with 5 more regular season games ahead of them.  Big wins over Robinson (5-0) and Forest Park/Hylton (6-3).  Playoffs are scheduled for late February/March.  The program has also supported three JV games to date.  Considering the ongoing pandemic, great things happening on the ice for these young athletes persevering through the constantly evolving restriction and limitations.  Go Stallions!

SCAA Football COVID-19 Update
by posted 07/16/2020

The Virginia High School League (VHSL) met yesterday to decide how to handle the fall sports season.  They presented three options that will be voted on during a July 27th meeting.  VAYFA (our league), has followed the VHSL decision process for deciding to play and we do not expect that to change based on the information received from the VAYFA President.

You can read more about the options in the link to the article above, but none of the options include football being played in the fall.  Football, for obvious reasons, is consider a higher risk infection activity related to COVID-19 and it is important to note the statement made by the VHSL executive director Billy Haun:

“It’s important to remember that in all these models playing sports in the high risk category depends on being out of the current Phase III guidelines. All our efforts will continue towards advocating for the opening of sports and activities in a safe and reasonable way that will protect athletes, activity participants, coaches, officials, and the public,” Haun said in a statement. “The VHSL will continue making judgments based on the best available information and directives provided by the Governor, the Virginia Department of Health (VDH), and the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE).”

More information will be forthcoming following the July 27th vote
