2019 Opening Day Ceremony

Here is the information for SYA Little League Opening Day Ceremony, brought to us by Glory Days Grill:

DATE/TIME
Saturday, March 30
8:40 am – 10 am (arrive no later than 8:20 am)
Westfield HS Gym – Enter Door #11
Rugby Sponsor

TEAM ORGANIZATION – Be On Time
Managers, notify your parents exactly where your team will gather to meet for opening day (i.e. basketball courts – preferably somewhere outside and come in as a team). We will sit all teams in VISITOR side bleachers in order by age.  T-Ball and CP in 1 section to left / MP and AA in next section and AAA, Majors, and Seniors in next section. We need to have everyone seated no later than 8:30 am SHARP. The teams will then be announced with their team banner proudly displayed. While parking is abundant at the school, please pay attention to all signage and don’t park illegally.

SPECIAL NOTES
Players should wear sneakers only, no cleats. Players should have their uniform shirt, pants, and hat on – show your Nationals pride! You can also leave your gloves, bats, and other baseball gear in the car. Families and all non-players should sit in the HOME stands. Players will still walk around gym and then take a place on the gym floor. Plan on heading out afterwards for your game.

Everyone should park either in front of the school or in the lot area right next to the school where door #11 is. Look for the Westfield HS baseball players to direct you to proper parking locations.

TEAM PARTICIPATION 
We expect all teams to participate as many of our sponsors will be present and we want this to be an event to celebrate our entire league, the players, and the community. SYA Little League will once again be honoring two outstanding players for their contributions as young citizens to our community. Be sure to congratulate each player as they will be recognized during the activities. We expect to see both the Centreville Wildcats and Westfield Bulldogs high school baseball teams along with the Bulldog Softball team giving high fives to all the players as they parade around the gym – this always pumps up the oldest and youngest of players. read more…

Pet Policy Not Allowed on School Grounds

SCHOOL FIELDS:

There are three Fairfax County ordinances prohibiting pets (i.e., dogs) from all Fairfax County school grounds. There are health notices on all FCPS school grounds asking pet owners to NOT bring their pets on school grounds.

Please do not bring your pets to ANY school fields.

FAIRFAX COUNTY/REGIONAL PARK AUTHORITY PARKS:

It must be on a leash, must remain AT LEAST 15 feet from the field at all times (NEVER to be on the field), controlled by someone that can restrict its movements (i.e. not a child), and any waste must be cleaned up and taken with you.

We prefer that you would NOT bring your pet to any soccer fields. We have had many complaints from concerned parents. While most people are responsible, even the best of dogs will had a bad day.

Because of the number of people who visit the fields, and local health codes, please consider leaving your pet at home while attending soccer games.
