Volunteer Building Director

Each adult and student coach MUST become a Volunteer Building Director (VBD) before the first team practice.  A certified VBD is required by Fairfax County Neighborhood and Community Services (NCS) for MYA to use FCPS facilities.  If an NCS inspector finds that we are using gyms without a certified VBD present, we could lose our gym access privileges.

Luckily, the VBD certification process is a quick 15-minutes.  Here are the steps:

  • Start on the Fairfax County Volunteer Building Direct website
  • Click on the Facilities Application Request System link and log in with your email
  • Navigate to the “Director Profile” tab
  • Review the short video
  • Apply for the certification by taking the 12-question certification test.
    • NOTE: There is no penalty in failing the test (80% to pass), just retake the test as often as needed.  Many simply fill out the test while watching the video 😊
  • Forward the certification confirmation email to   

EXCEPTION: The VBD certification is good for 2 years.  Only retake if needed.  If you took it with another sport, send that certification confirmation email to  .

Here are answers to questions usually asked after taking the VBD certification training:

  • Yes, NCS inspectors ("blue shirts") do visit gyms while teams are there
  • Yes, you can use your smart phone to display your VBD certification
  • Yes, you can use your smart phone to display MYA Volleyball’s gym permit
  • No, you don’t need to submit any forms – MYA Volleyball will take care of it if needed
