Dear VYS Members,
First and foremost, VYS sends our thoughts and love to the Vienna Community - we hope our families are SAFE and in good spirits.
Given the recent COVID-19 developments as well as Governor Northam's orders on March 23rd and the Stay at Home order issued on March 30th, the VYS Spring 2020 House soccer season is hereby cancelled. This is very tough news to deliver, but our number one concern is the health and safety of our VYS players, parents, and hard-working volunteers.
VYS is empathetic to the impact of COVID-19 on our community, and we are here to support our players and families during these difficult times. We are initiating a few options for our families regarding Spring 2020 registration fees.
All Spring House registrants will need to select one of the following choices in the Google Form below for your spring registration fees:
DONATE - VYS has incurred and continues to incur costs related to our Spring programs, even if those programs can't happen as planned. As a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization, your tax-deductible donations are always appreciated. These will ensure that we are able to maintain our commitments to our own staff and continue to be there for you as a long-term community resource. A donation acknowledgment will be sent for tax purposes.
CREDIT TO FALL 2020 SEASON – VYS offers the opportunity to move your full registration over to the Fall season.
REFUND – VYS will offer a full refund of registration fees minus the $30 administrative fee.
*Multiple forms may need to be completed if you have participants in multiple programs, or if you would like to select different options (donations/credit/refund) for each participant.
Your selection will be processed within 30 days of your completion of the google form. We appreciate your patience as processing this many requests at once is an unprecedented undertaking for us and will require significant effort on the part of our staff. If the form is not filled out by April 30th, 2020 your Spring 2020 registration fees will be counted as a donation.
If you are a U13-U19 player that ordered a uniform, you may pick up your jersey from PJ’s Sports when it may safely reopen. The uniform may then be used for a future House season.
Our House team and entire club wholeheartedly thank our VYS families for your support and positivity. We are also incredibly thankful for our Commissioners, Coaches, and Fields Manager (Mike Clark) and referee assignor (Dianne Gurdak), for their hard work leading up to the season. We could not be more proud of your commitment to A Lifetime of Soccer.
While we cancel this season with heavy hearts, we are incredibly encouraged by what the future of VYS holds. We are eager to get back on the fields and provide a fun and positive outlet for our kids - there are bright days of soccer ahead!!! Please let us know if there is anything we can do to support you in the coming weeks. We are here to answer any questions you may have.
