Welcome to the Reston Youth Association Registration System! Please read each program's description before selecting a program and beginning the registration process. 

Registration for the 2021 Fall Sports is now OPEN.


Thank you for choosing Reston Youth Association (RYA) to be a part of your family. Beginning in January 2012, a new Board of Directors began to lead the organization with the goal of providing the best possible environment for your family and the community. We looked at the history of our program and started making plans for the future as an all-volunteer, not for profit organization. The realization of that goal will be supported through the efforts of the newly elected 2021 board. On the field our coaches are trained in the latest techniques and safety and we implemented new rules to limit non-game day contact of players.  Off the field, RYA worked with the county and local organizations to bring turf fields to our area. The turf fields were installed at South Lakes High School Stadium and at our current practice grounds of Langston Hughes Middle School! The addition of lights at the Langston Hughes field will provide added safety as we practice late into the Fall.  

With all these changes, we find it necessary to set the registration price to continue to maintain the safety and improve the quality of our programs. The 2021 registration fee covers the cost to replace or refurbish player equipment, equipment for coaches, fees to FCYFL and the county, and a portion of our overall operating costs. The remaining operating cost is covered through fundraising.
