Field Guidelines

Field Closure Guideline

How do we know when fields are closed? 
VYS will update the VYS website by 3:15pm each weekday.  Please refer to the field status icon located in the top right hand column of the VYS website. At times, VYS may close fields eventhough Fairfax County has it listed as open. Since VYS maintains the VYS fields, please follow the VYS field closure status.
The field status key is as follows:  
  • Green Light = All Fields are open
  • Red Light = All Fields are closed 
  • Yellow Light = One or more fields are closed
By clicking on the Field Status Link, you can view a list of the exact field closures.
VYS also uses a text messaging system, Voice Reach.  Members can sign up and input information to receive text messages, pages, or emails.  We use the system for immediate messages that need to get out, including field closures and game cancellations.  To sign up for Voice Reach: contact VYS Admin at admin@vys.org.

Questions? Please contact VYS Field Staff at practicefields@vys.org.


Thunder and Lightning Guidelines

At the first sight of lightning or sound of thunder stop all field activities immediately and seek shelter indoors.
Do not wait for lightning to occur over the field you are playing on.  Do not resume play until 30 minutes after the last occurrence of lightning or thunder.
