South County Athletic Association (SCAA) has youth sports programs in the Lorton / Springfield VA area for football, soccer, cheerleading, lacrosse, basketball, field hockey, wresting, volleyball, and track.
In order to help with COVID-19 guidelines, we need help from the entire community to do our best to restrict the spread. Please help follow these guidelines to help us have safe, fun and enjoyable sports seasons!
If anyone has any illness or symptoms of COVID-19—they must remain home. Parents, please make sure you do a daily pre-screening of all student athletes before they attend practice in accordance with CDC guidelines to determine whether or not they should participate in group sport activities.
