2016 Accenture Day of Service

On November 11, 2016, more than two dozen Accenture employees based in Arlington, VA volunteered their time on a beautiful Fall day to aid the Centreville community for the third consecutive year. The group completed numerous field maintenance activities on two fields used by hundreds of Southwestern Youth Association players for Little League baseball games and practices. Their efforts have further enhanced the safety and use of these facilities that are used on a regular basis by the children of our community for healthy activity, learning about the value of teamwork, and becoming good citizens.

Thank you to Accenture and their workforce for embodying these values and enriching our community.

Parking – Cub Run and All Fields

While we all recognize that parking at Cub Run can be tough to come by at times, we want to make sure that all our players and their families are safe when leaving their cars and making their way to the fields. It has come to our attention that there have been some number of incidents where cars are being parked illegally, often ignoring posted signs, making crossing streets/intersections very dangerous. This includes parking illegally in the school parking lots. Please heed all signage and consider the players, families, and the local residents in your choice for parking as there is always the school lot (other side of the building) – which is often less than half full. We expect the police to be patrolling this area more frequently because of complaints. Here is a general summary of Fairfax County parking regulations:

Please heed this warning as well as street posting. All these regulations apply to all our fields.
