Fairfax, Virginia is a great destination for sports fans, with a variety of professional teams and facilities available. From the Washington Valor and Purcellville Cannons to the Washington Capitals and Nationals, there's something for everyone. Plus, Fairfax County Public Schools and Fairfax County Community and Neighborhood Services both offer scheduling through their online reservation system, CommunityUse. Organizational event coordinators (OECs) can submit requests through CommunityUse for a variety of sports, including soccer, basketball, hockey, and more.
Most of these sports are normally played outdoors, but can be moved indoors during inclement weather or for off-season physical training. However, approval must be obtained from the Community Use Section of the FCPS for any sport or athletic activity that is not on the list. Additionally, community users are prohibited from using certain items on any athletic field. The Virginia Squires played in the American Basketball Association from 1970 to 1976. The NFL's Washington Commanders and the NHL's Washington Capitals have their practice facilities and operational headquarters in Northern Virginia. The Fairfax Falcons Paralympic Sports Program is administered in partnership with the Fairfax County Department of Neighborhood and Community Services.
