- The league requires DMV ID Cards for each player and there are no exceptions. Remember, you can only make appointments to get the ID Cards, so it is imperative that you accomplish this ASAP! Yes, you may have to drive 30 minutes to 1 hour to get the ID Card instead of waiting for a local DMV. You will need a DMV ID card to participate in the league weigh-in.

- Football practice will be held 5 days a week until school begins in Fairfax County. We will have practice 3 days a week once school begins and that will be at the discretion of your child's coach. 

- Football camp and practices will be held at Martin Luther King Jr. park. We will have home games at MLK Park along with possible away games throughout Fairfax County, Manassas, and Loundoun County.

GSYAA is not responsible for transporting your child to and from practice and to and from games. As a parent/guardian, you need to make every effort to get your child to and from practices and games. We are still experiencing COVID-19 and we need to still practice due diligence in safety.

- We are requiring every child to have a water bottle at practice. Yes, GSYAA will provide water at the practices but we want to make sure that with COVID-19 we are practicing due diligence in safety.
