NVYLL’s scheduling policy that may potentially affect participation in NVYLL.
NVYLL is proud to serve the youth in Northern Virginia by providing a quality program of sportsmanship, teamwork, skills development, and fun and, most important, a safe environment.
NVYLL member clubs provide the league their available space (dates & times) to schedule regular season and playoff games. This time and space are dictated by various Parks and Recreation agencies governing the jurisdictions where the clubs are located and area(s) serviced. User space is distributed in conjunction through complex matrices and formulas adopted as policy.
NVYLL game scheduling can not equally recognize, and observe, all the different traditions, logistics and religious customs, by not scheduling games on a particular day, time or at certain locations. We simply can’t be "everything to everyone.” Trying to honor scheduling requests of a club, team and or individual basis is impossible. While we would like to try and accommodate everyone’s wishes, the demand for space is greater than facilities available, so we play when and where the parks and recreation agencies allow us.
The purpose of this bulletin is to advise every family that registers to play lacrosse in NVYLL, that playing on these “special days or times” is a very real possibility and to consider what impact, if any, playing would have on your family. Each club is required to inform every registrant of this bulletin so they can make an informed decision as to their participation in NVYLL. Lacrosse is one of the most rewarding of all the youth sports, but it also requires a time commitment effecting family time.
