Information about Walker-ID

** TACKLE FOOTBALL REMINDER **

Each player wanting to play tackle football in the fall MUST have a valid Walker ID card issued by the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).  The DMV ID cards need to be shown to verify each player at the official Fairfax County Youth Football League weigh-in certifications that take place in August each year. Receipts from the DMV will NOT be accepted.

Please allow enough time to make an appointment at DMV, and then for your child’s DMV ID to be mailed to you.  The ID will take 7-14 business days to arrive after the application is submitted at the DMV.  You must schedule an appointment with DMV now; walk-ins are no longer allowed.  Also, these ID cards are no longer issued the same day by the DMV in person.  The cost of the ID is $2.00/year for a minimum of $10.00 and a maximum of $16.00.  Please be sure to take the proper original documentation with you and your child to your local DMV when obtaining a Walker ID.

Please make sure your child’s name, address, and date of birth are accurate on the DMV ID.  If your child already has a DMV Walker ID, please check the expiration date to confirm it is still valid.  If the ID has expired or will expire prior to August, it will need to be renewed.

For additional details and to schedule your appointment, go to: http://www.dmv.state.va.us/drivers/#id/child_id.html

If you have any questions about RYA’s tackle football program, please contact Commissioner Jeremy Lee:

Help Us Continue the Seahawk Tradition...

“Once a Seahawk, always a winner!”

Help us continue the winning tradition for the next generation of Seahawks! Reston Youth Association (RYA) is your home for youth sports. RYA is a not-for-profit organization run by volunteers who dedicate their time to coach and organize our programs. Through RYA’s youth tackle football, flag football, and cheerleading programs, Reston’s youth learn discipline, dedication, and teamwork. RYA is committed to providing our children a safe and fun environment through which to develop lifelong skills.

To do so, RYA relies on community support and funding. Our players need new helmets and shoulder pads to replace outdated tackle football equipment and additional cheerleading uniforms for our ever-growing cheerleading program. Help make a difference for our Reston youth by contributing to their safety and success. Any amount is greatly appreciated!

Did  you know….

·        RYA had two 2018 tackle football teams win the Fairfax County Youth Football League Championship!!!

·        RYA cheerleaders have taken 1st place at the Alexandria Invitational Cheer Competition for 6 years!!!

·        RYA's flag football program is the largest in Northern Virginia, with over 200 youth participants from the Reston area!!!
