Your Head Coach will be emailing you sometime next week with information on practice times and locations starting the following week of Aug. 7th. We are still working to finalize all the grade level coaching staffs, rosters, and practice locations and getting that information to the Head coaches. The field maps and final grade level rules will soon be %100 updated on the website as well.


We have team store open for you orders!  Support your team, and know that a portion of that money goes right back into the VAA Youth Football program.  You can find the store at this link.

More to Come…

We are finalizing some additional dates (Pictures, VAA Night and a new event we will share more details about soon).  When those dates are set, we will post them to the VAA Football Website and send an email communication.
