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 2020 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 2020 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.  This summer two new 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 begin to recover the cost of some of the items mentioned above.  The 2020 registration fee covers the cost to replace or refurbish player equipment, equipment for coaches, repayment of the turf loan, fees to FCYFL and the county and a portion of our overall operating costs.  The remaining operating cost is covered through fundraising.

2020 Tackle Football

Reston Youth Association (RYA) is a member of the Fairfax County Youth Football League (FCYFL).  FCYFL plays American-style full contact tackle football using modified high school football rules.

Registration is open to boys and girls age 7-16 as of October 1, 2020.

Under the new rules revision for the 130 and 155 lb weight classes, 12 year-old players weighing in excess of 150 lbs and 13 year-old players weighing in excess of 175 lbs cannot play in a position that normally handles the ball on offense. 

Any player at the 130 lb weight class turning 16 years of age during the season (Oct 1 - Dec 31) will be required to play at the 155 lb weight class. 

Any player at the 155 lb weight class who will turn 17 years of age during the season (Oct 1 - Dec 31) will not be eligible to play in the Fairfax County Youth Football League.

What Do I Get With Registration?
Registration includes equipment (Helmet, shoulder pads, 7-piece pad set, practice jersey and pants and game jersey and pants) and 5 tickets ($25 value) for the RYA end of year giveaway.  The remaining money helps to cover a portion of the costs to operate RYA (i.e county fees, insurance, FCYFL membership, etc).

Is there a raffle this year?
This year there is no mandatory raffle fundraiser but you are encouraged to sell the 5 tickets you received as part of registration to help recoup some of your initial costs. Players and families are welcome to sell or purchase additional books of 5 tickets for $25 as additional entries to the RYA end of year prize giveaway. 

Thank you again for choosing RYA and we will see you on the field.
