Welcome to the Vienna Youth, Inc. (VYI) Lacrosse home page. VYI Lacrosse participates in the Northern Virginia Youth Lacrosse League (NVYLL). The purpose of the NVYLL is to provide the youth residing within the geographical boundaries of northern Virginia a healthful, enjoyable leisure time activity and as a corollary to develop qualities that may help them in later life, sportsmanship, team play, and integrity.
We will be at the VYI Equipment Annex on Monday, 6/27/22, 7:00-8:00pm to accept returns of your player's rental equipment. The Annex building is the small brick building behind the Vienna Community Center (where you picked up your rental equipment).
Before you return your gear, please lay out all of your rental equipment (helmet, gloves, arm pads, shoulder pads) in the sun for as many hours as possible. DO NOT return your gear without doing this (please).
When you return your gear, we will return your $200 security deposit check. :-)
Effective January 1, 2022, shoulder pads for boys’ field players must be designed for lacrosse and meet NOCSAE standard ND200.
Effective January 1, 2021, boys' and girls' goalie chest protectors must be designed for lacrosse and meet the NOCSAE standard, ND200.
All chest protectors and shoulder pads must contain the NOCSAE logo and SEI certification mark on both the packaging and the product to be legal for play.
A list of all certified products can be found here.
IMPORTANT: At this time, the implementation date requiring that shoulder pads designed for lacrosse and meeting NOCSAE standard ND200 remains as January 1, 2022. USA Lacrosse is aware of concerns raised by some that there will not be enough products for the start of the 2022 season. USA Lacrosse has spoken with multiple manufacturers and retailers, and they do not expect that current supply chain issues would affect the start of next season. USAL encourages consumers to consider multiple online and brick-and-mortar providers to find needed equipment. If there are any changes or new developments, USA Lacrosse will keep our members updated with the latest information. (updated Nov. 17, 2021)

Concussion awareness is a growing topic in youth sports. In support of our athletes, VYI Lacrosse is providing an overview of concussions to both raise concussion awareness and also instill knowledge about the symptoms and risks of concussions across our coaching staff and parent community.
Please take a few minutes to review the information, which includes signs and symptoms of concussion and return to play risks and guidelines.
Parents are also encouraged to visit the "Heads-up" page on the CDC website to review concussion information and symptoms:
