Concussion Awareness

To help ensure the health and safety of young athletes, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) developed the Heads Up: Concussion in Youth Sports initiative to offer information about concussions to coaches, parents, and athletes involved in youth sports. The Heads Up initiative provides important information on preventing, recognizing, and responding to a concussion.  We suggest that parents take this opportunity to educate themselves on the symptoms of concussions and the appropriate way to monitor them.  You will be surprised as to how many signs there are that most take for granted or simply miss.  Click HERE for more helpful information.


All players must be Arlington County residents as of the date of their first game. 'Resident' is defined as:

  • A person or family living within the geographical boundaries of Arlington County, Virginia.
  • A person or family whose property is bisected by the county boundary and that of an adjacent jurisdiction, such that real estate taxes are paid to Arlington County.
  • A person or family owning property and paying real estate taxes in Arlington County even though that person or family resides outside the county boundary.
  • Current employees of the Arlington County Board or the Arlington County School Board, and their immediate family members.
  • Nonresident, full-time students who attend a public or private school in Arlington County
