Word of Grace Info

Word of Grace Parking


Address

13832 Redskin Drive
Herndon, VA 20171

 

Word of Grace Parking

  • Please be mindful of the No Parking Signs... many of the nearby businesses (especially across the street) have been known to tow.  If you are driving, build in some extra time to park. 
  • Games are scheduled on the Half Hour, so spaces regularly open up as the games finish
  • Please note that parking is permitted in the Touchdown Deli parking lot (on the right... immediately prior to Word of Grace)


Field Entrance

  • No Pets are Allowed.  This is a Word of Grace policy we are required to adhere to.

  • Only utilize the Main Gate (to left of the Word of Grace Building)

  • Please respect the Word of Grace property and do not attempt to access the fields through the church entrance.  At no time should any player, parent or fan enter the church in an attempt to gain access to the athletic fields and/or use the restrooms.

We have had a wonderful relationship with the good people at the church and wish to continue as such.  Please respect their property.

How to View your Team Page?

  1. Sign in to the website using your EMAIL and PASSWORD
  2. Via the dropdown menus, click on TEAMS/LEAGUES
  3. At the CHANGE TEAM: prompt, specify
  • FALL HS LEAGUE
  • Your Division: i.e. Varsity or JV, then the division color (ex. VARSITY > BLUE)
  • Your Team: (ex. DAWGS)

 

This will leave you on your “Team Page”.  From here, you can (on the left strip)…

  • CONTACTS – Reach out to your coaches
  • SCHEDULE – View your upcoming games
  • ROSTER – View the players and coaches (NOTE: check out OPTIONS… a great way print out rosters, email the team members, etc.)
  • RESULTS – Review scores to previous games
  • STANDINGS – Divisional and Conference Standings

 

IMPORTANT NOTE –  The “single version of the truth” as far as schedules go is what’s currently online.  Recommendation is NOT to print out the entire season’s schedule for you team because it might change slightly over the course of the season (Occasionally, Teams request time changes due to SAT/ACT Testing, School Events, etc.)  

 

As a general rule, any change to the current week’s schedule will occur not later than midnight Wednesday.  This will prevent players from having to make last minute logistical changes, as well as ensure that game reminders sent out late in the week are accurate.
