In order to reduce the cost for using the Fairfax County Public School gyms, we are required to provide Volunteer Building Directors during gym use.
During practices, a coach or an assistant coach can act as the VBD. During games, the Coaches, Time/Scorekeepers CAN NOT serve as the team VBD.
Each team is required to have 2 parents (VBD's must be 18 years of age or older) as certified VBD's
The process to become a certified VBD is brief and consists of viewing a short video and then taking an on-line test through the Fairfax County website. Once you submit and pass the test, the County will send you a certificate of completion via email. You must carry this certificate with you at all times when you serve as VBD at the FCPS gyms. To watch the video and take the short test, you will need to create an account and log into the Fairfax County's FAR system.
