Welcome to Vienna Youth Inc. Football. Our program has a long history and tradition of building champions and young men and women of character. VYI is proud of the fact that our Football program is the most successful program in the history of the Fairfax County Youth Football league. This success is driven by the level of commitment and support delivered by our coaches, players, parents, volunteers, and community that goes above and beyond the average youth program.
If you are interested in volunteering as a coach, assistant coach, or in any other capacity, please contact us at
or complete the coach application on the left menu.
Teams practice Monday through Friday from August 4 until the first day of school. After that, practices are three nights a week (determined by the individual coaches). Preseason games start the weekend of August 23. September 13 is when the regular season begins.
All players must have a Virginia DMV ID in order to certify. There are very few exceptions. Please have this done by August 1. It is a two week process
All players must have a DMV issued ID in order to play
Everyone participating in the VYI Football must have a valid VA DMV ID card in hand for weigh-in. No other form of ID is acceptable to the football's governing body - the Fairfax County Youth Football League (FCYFL). This means the FCYFL will not accept birth certificates, military IDs, passports or any form of ID other than a VA DMV ID.
For our returning players this is a gentle reminder to check the expiration date on your current ID. Older versions of the ID expire after 5 years. For our new players here is a link to the VA DMV website that explains how to obtain a VA DMV ID.
Due to security issues, the VA DMV will not issue an ID at the time of application. These IDs are mailed to your home and the process can take up to 2 weeks.
VYI has received some complaints concerning the behavior of some parents, coaches and/or children using area sports facilities. While many of these complaints are eventually discovered to be related to other sports that are not related to VYI, we want to ensure our members continue to be respectful of the neighborhoods, schools, and parks that host our practices and events. Some of the specific complaints we’ve received include:
Parking in front of neighborhood houses and obstructing resident access
Walking through private property
Generally disturbing the peace and quiet of the people living around the fields and gyms
As stated previously, we don’t know if any of the incidents reported involve VYI parents, coaches or children but it is appropriate that we establish guidelines so that everyone knows what is expected of them. Anything a parent, coach or player does while attending a VYI activity reflects on VYI and all of us individually.
Use of area gyms and fields is a privilege not a right. VYI has an excellent reputation in the community and because of that we enjoy certain privileges. It is imperative that we maintain this reputation. We are guests in these neighborhoods and must conduct ourselves accordingly.
We will be amending the parents Code of Conduct rules to spell out specific expectations but here are some rules that we must all follow:
Parking on residential side streets is only permitted when all lots adjacent to a facility are full.
Do not park in the designated SACC (School Age Child Care) parking areas in school parking lots
When it is necessary to park on a neighborhood street we must be quiet and respectful of the residents and their property. This means there should be no yelling, littering or trespassing on private property.
Never park in such a way as to block a driveway or otherwise obstruct the resident from leaving their home or parking in front of it.
Make sure we leave each facility clean and free of trash.
Be a leader. If you witness inappropriate behavior intervene and report to a coach or commissioner as appropriate.
We appreciate your support in ensuring that we have continued access to the facilities that are vital to our sports programs.
The FCYFL urgently needs more officials to cover all of our games. If you know of someone who may be interested in a great part-time job that's a lot of fun, please contact the Fairfax County Football Officiating Assocation (FCFOA)
Candidates must be at least 16 years old and have reliable transportation. Training will be provided. This is a great job for high school students or adults.
