- Parent Participation
Parent participation is highly encouraged in all CYS programs, and is actually necessary for some activities to be successful. There would not be a Sports program without the dedication of volunteer coaches. Some ways parents participate in child care programs may include eating lunch with their child and participating in various room activities (prior arrangements must be made with your child's teacher). Parent Advisory Boards (PAB's) operate at all the Centers and are open to all parents. Through the PAB, parents provide valuable input to the programs in which their children spend a significant portion of their day. To encourage parent participation, the "Why I'm Needed" (WIN) program allows parents to earn points through volunteering opportunities at the centers, or attending parenting classes through the Family Advocacy Program.
The WIN Program: This is a special program that enables parents to earn up to a 10% discount on their 1st child's monthly child care fees at the CDC or SAC. Parents perform essential tasks for the CDC or SAC and earn a specific number of discount points. Each discount point is worth 1 percent each up to a maximum of 10 discount points which is 10%. These discount points may then be applied towards child care fee. Check with the CDC or SAC front desk staff for more information.
Eligibility to use CYS programs include active duty military personnel, DoD civilian personnel, reservists on active duty for 72 hours or more, and DoD contractors working on Fort Belvoir. Military retirees are only eligible for our sports programs and our free Middle School and Teens program. Because child care programs are offered for the sponsor to report to work so that the Army can meet its mission, eligibility to use Fort Belvoir child care programs ends upon End Term of Service (ETS) of sponsor, termination of sponsor's DoD employment or DoD contractor's employment on Fort Belvoir. A thirty-day grace period is authorized to find alternate care. All patrons must register with Parent Central Services (Resource and Referral - Central Registration) or by calling +1 (703)805-5555 or +1 (703)805-5556.

The Child and Youth Services (CYS) Youth Sports & Fitness program offers various opportunities for children to participate in sports. The program is expanding to provide support for children ages 3 to 18 years to encourage healthy, life long habits.
Team sports such as football and baseball are only available with the participation of volunteer coaches and assistants. All coaches are trained and certified by the National Youth Sports Coaches Association (NYSCA). Players must be registered with CYS in order to enroll in a sport.
