For the safety and well-being of our participants and in compliance with the Governor’s orders, VYI will be cancelling the spring sports seasons for lacrosse, volleyball, flag football, rugby, and track.
VYI understands that some families are impacted more than others and will therefore offer each family one of three choices related to fees already paid for the season (including – if applicable for your sport - base registration fees, any late fees, and any non-volunteer fees that were paid).
The choices are enumerated at our website on a registration form that each family, which is currently registered for a VYI Spring sport, must fill out. You need to go to www.vyi.org and at our home page, click on "REGISTER ONLINE" in the left hand column and hit "SUBMIT" after your personal info and then complete the registration form questions.
YOU MUST COMPLETE THE REGISTRATION FORM TO QUALIFY FOR ONE OF THE THREE FOLLOWING CHOICES:
DONATE - VYI is a 501 (c)(3) non profit organization and your donations are always appreciated. VYI uses these donated funds to serve our community and to obtain fields and gyms, buy equipment, store equipment, pay fees for those in need, and many other uses related to providing our youth sports programs. We expect INCREASED NEED for scholarships in the near future. If you wish to donate, click on "DONATE" and you will be offered a thank you letter where you can fill in the amount of your fees for tax related purposes.
CREDIT - VYI offers you the opportunity to leave your money with VYI to be credited toward a future season. By clicking on "CREDIT" VYI will maintain these amounts on credit at our website and in our physical records and they may be used as a credit against future fees for other VYI seasons. Credits must be used by 7/1/2021.
REFUND - VYI offers a third alternative by clicking on "REFUND" and that is to get a credit on your credit card bill or a check for FEES ALREADY PAID your registration fees.
Processing this many requests at once is unprecedented for us and will require a significant effort on the part of our volunteers. Please bear with us as we process your requests.

Select teams will play on Saturdays in the McLean Volleyball league. Active club players and MS/HS Travel players cannot participate in MS/HS Select.
HS select is a bring your own team format. The HS Select league is an advanced league for players who want to have a competitive volleyball experience without the Club or HS Travel commitment. For the spring 2020 season, HS Select will continue to follow the bring your own team / bring your own coach format where a group of friends and acquaintances registers as a team and identifies its own coach (optional). The commitment is one 90-minute practice during the week (also optional) and one 60 or 90-minute match on Saturdays. Singles interested in playing in the HS Select league may be picked up by a BYOT team looking for additional players. They can attend the Feb 29th or March 7th Tryouts for team placement.
MS & HS travel teams will play on Wed Night against club teams.
Schedules can change due to gym cancellations for school events and other conflicts. We lose 20% of gym space during the season, sometimes on short notice.
When teams are made in early March, get Sports Signup Play (or update SI Play if you already have it) at your app store. It's the easiest way to keep up with changing schedules and takes one minute to get set up. Sign in with the email and password you use on vyivolleyball.org.
You'll be able to look up your team and schedule on the SI Play app. Schedules will populate as they are set. Trust the app.
If you already have SI Play, you will need update the app and/or sign out and sign back in to refresh and see your new team (tap More... then scroll down and Log Out... then sign back in). If you still can't see your team, it probably means you have multiple VYI member IDs or multiple email addresses. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
