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!
Anyone with any illness or symptoms of COVID-19 must remain home. Parents, please make sure to complete a daily pre-screening of all student-athletes before they attend practice in accordance with the CDC guidelines to determine whether or not your child should participate in group sport activities. All visiting teams/opponents will use their own system to verify health checks.
Attendance will be captured by coaches/instructors
Masks should always be worn by everyone at all times.
The only exception is for players during practice/competition
Players must wear a mask as they enter/exit all practice facilities and at any time not with their team
