REGISTRATION

Absolutely!  If you want to join with friends but don’t have enough players for a full team simply use the Small Group Registration option. Here’s how it works:

  1. You’ll need to register using the small group registration and create a name for your group.
  2. Ask your friends to register using the small group registration, and select your group name.
  3. You’re all set!  We’ll be sure to place you all on the same team.

Once you register your team for the next season, you can easily “copy” over the rosters from previous seasons. From the My Dashboard page, click “Manage or add players” link next to the team you’re adding player to, then click the orange “Copy Players” button at the top. From the drop-down, select the team to copy from, select the players to copy, then click “invite”. This will populate the invite section at the bottom of the page–hit “start” to initiate the invitation process.

To remove a player from your team, the captain should email [email protected] with the team name and the player to be removed.

Unfortunately, there is no way in the system to change the split number. Please contact ASAP at [email protected] or 703-382-9111

Individual player team assignments are usually announced about 5-10 days before the start of a season. You will receive an email within a week after registration closes with your team information, game schedule, & field locations.  In the meantime, if you have any questions, feel free to email us at [email protected]  Your team will need to agree on a Team Name and Shirt Color so start thinking now!

Click on the Sport registration, register as an Individual Player, submit payment and FXA will place you on a team of other individuals or an existing team.

Each guest / substitute player must complete the Guest Player Waiver registration before they participate in any game.

We try very hard to place all free agents / small groups. We go in order of registration, and only place players that have paid in full. If we are unable to place you, we will offer you options for other leagues or a full refund!

Participants play with FXA at their own risk. Athletics can be inherently dangerous. We do not provide health insurance to any players and do not refund players’ fees if they are injured – nor are refunds given if you move, schedule changes, don’t like your team, etc…sorry! Players assume all risk when they register!

If a player registers after the first league game, they will incur a $10 late fee when registering for the team. This helps ensure that everyone registers in a timely fashion so that your team’s spot is guaranteed and placed in the right division.

If a team captain does not pay the Full Team payment by the league start date, they will be charged a 10% late fee each week (7 days) until the team fee is paid in full. FXA also reserves the right to forfeit any upcoming games until the team fee has been paid in full.

Fairfax County requires us to collect an additional $30 fee for all players utilizing county fields that do not reside in Fairfax County.

If a team captain chooses to split the team fee among players, the players have up until the league start date to make payment. Any fees owed 1 week after the league start date will be re-assigned to the captain and he/she will be responsible for paying the outstanding amount owed in full, otherwise any remaining team balances will be charged to the captain’s card. Any outstanding fees that still remain after two (2) weeks from the league start date will result in upcoming game forfeits until the team balance is paid.

TEAM

Absolutely not. This rule is in place to keep the league fair. A player may sub for another team ONLY if they are short players, otherwise that player will be suspended for up to 2 games for playing with another team. Any player caught listed on 2 rosters will not be eligible to participate in ANY playoffs for that season. A Sunday Morning league and Sunday Night league are considered two different leagues.

Team captains need to invite each player to join their roster; from the My Dashboard page click “Add or manage players” next to your team name, and then click “Invite Players” from the “Invite” drop-down. Then enter your players’ email addresses.

Each player will then need to accept the invite and register themselves onto the team.

Once you register your team for the next season, you can easily “copy” over the rosters from previous seasons. From the My Dashboard page, click “Manage or add players” link next to the team you’re adding player to, then click the orange “Copy Players” button at the top. From the drop-down, select the team to copy from, select the players to copy, then click “invite”. This will populate the invite section at the bottom of the page–hit “start” to initiate the invitation process.

To remove a player from your team, the captain should email [email protected] with the team name and the player to be removed.

If your team finishes with a winning record (4-3-1 or equivalent) or better at the end of the season, FXA reserves the right to move your team up to a higher division the following season (regardless if your team make the playoffs) in order to keep competition even and the league fair.

If your team finishes with a losing record (3-4-1) or worse at the end of the season, FXA reserves the right to move your team down to a lower division the following season in order to keep competition even and the league fair.

Unfortunately, there is no way in the system to change the split number. Please contact ASAP at [email protected] or 703-382-9111

Yes, here is a breakdown of the roster’s minimum & maximum.  Please note, you can use subs throughout the regular season as needed (must complete the waiver)nnFootball = Minimum is 9 Players, Maximum is 18 playersnn11v11 Soccer = Minimum is 14 Players, Maximum is 22 playersnn8v8 Soccer = Minimum is 9 Players, Maximum is 16 playersnnSoftball = Minimum is 13 Players, Maximum is 20 playersnnBasketball = Minimum is 5 Players, Maximum is 12 playersnnKickball = Minimum is 10 Players, Maximum is 20 playersnnVolleyball = Minimum is 6 Players, Maximum is 12 playersnnBowling = Minimum is 4 Players, Maximum is 8 playersnnDodgeball = Minimum is 8 Players, Maximum is 16 playersnnTeams that do not have the minimum # of players on their team roster will not be eligible for playoffs and are subject to forfeiting all season games.

Any outstanding fees that still remain after two (2) weeks from the league start date will result in upcoming game forfeits until the team balance is paid.

GAME

We generally will not make a decision until after 3pm on weather cancellations, because that is when Fairfax County updates their field status each day. We typically cancel games 2 hours before gametime, and each roster player will receive an email or text (if enabled on their account) about the game cancellation or delay.

If a game is cancelled due to inclement weather, all efforts will be made to reschedule for a future date on the same league day. However make-up games may be rescheduled on a different league day to keep the season on schedule.

The captains must log into their account and select My Dashboard. From their Dashboard, click on the Team Name then click on the Report Score button to enter the game score. Please enter both team scores, then click Submit. It’s a very easy process, so please enter the game score within 3 days after the game date. If the score was entered by the other captain first, and you believe it to be incorrect, please email us at [email protected]

If you can’t field a team, you’ll need to email [email protected] at least 8 hours before your scheduled game to avoid paying the forfeit fee.

If you would like to request a reschedule, send us an email to [email protected] at least 5 business days prior to the scheduled game. Otherwise, we will not be able to pursue a reschedule for you. Your opponent must agree to the reschedule, otherwise the game will be a forfeit.

SHIRTS

No, we allow teams to be creative and flexible on their own jerseys. We do offer low cost options for sale in our Team Shop

To keep our costs low, team shirts/jerseys must be ordered at least 10 at a time.

We submit all orders for batch processing on Mondays. If your order is in by close of business on Monday, they’ll usuall be ready that Saturday. We will contact you as soon as we hear from the manufacturer that the order is ready.

We have arranged for pickup at the manufacturer–Cassel’s Sports and Awards in Herndon, since they are open until 6:30pm. You can also arrange to have the order shipped for an additional cost. You’ll get all that info in your email though!

All FXA leagues adhere to Fairfax County policy regarding severe weather (thunder, lightning) which all players, coaches, managers, and referees are responsible for implementing. It is a requirement that if any individual involved with the League–including non-playing spectators–sees lightning or hears thunder, they must bring it to the referee’s attention immediately. EVERYONE shares in this responsibility.nnWhen a member of the referee crew sees lightning or hears thunder, or is alerted to such by a player, coach, manager, or spectator, the referee will immediately suspend play for 20 minutes. Everyone MUST clear the field and retreat to the parking lot. Anyone who remains on the field after the referee has ordered everyone off the field acknowledges that they do so at their own risk and that neither the League nor the referee crew assigned to the match can be held responsible or any injuries occurring as long as play is suspended. At no time may an individual ask the referee to ignore the lightning or thunder or insist that play be allowed to continue.nnThe referee will wait 30 minutes from the last flash of lightning or peal of thunder. Each time lightning re-appears or thunder is heard, the referee MUST re-start the 30 minute clock. There are NO exceptions to this waiting period. Once 30 minute pass with no additional thunder or lightning, the referee will resume play with the appropriate re-start from when play was suspended.nnBecause the League must operate within the constraints of field permits, the referee has the authority to shorten the halves of the game to try and complete the game or to cancel the match in its entirety.
