Fairfax County requires that gym use be monitored by a Building Director. We keep costs down by having our own VBD in house rather than paying a fee to Fairfax County for providing a VBD at every gym for practice and games.
NFC Basketball asks that every parent whose child is participating in basketball be a Building Director. A Building Director's duties include monitoring the gym. Every coach and assistant coach and age group commissioner is required to be a VBD. By having each parent be a VBD we save the league from having to pay the county to provide a VBD at each practice and each game and we provide the coach/assistant coach with a service by helping monitor the gym so they can concentrate on teaching the kids.

How to Become a Volunteer Building Director Volunteer Building Director Duties * - The BD, accompanied by a custodian, must inspect the gym, rest rooms, and hallways to determine the existing condition of the facility before usage begins. This inspection includes: basketball rims, nets, and backboards; floors, ceilings, and walls; bathrooms and locker rooms; adjacent hallways; volleyball standards; and other areas that are accessible to the public for community use.
VBD Bi-Weekly Report * - The first coach to use each gym does the first inspection and the last coach to use each gym does the last inspection. Indicate the day and time of gym usage. Record the time of facility inspection by custodian before and after gym use. Briefly describe damage to facility during use. If no damage, indicate so. Do not leave this space blank. Validate report with signatures of BD and custodian.

Indicate the who, what, where, when, and why. Be specific and thorough in completing the report. (e.g., front of the left thigh). Provide contact information for at least two witnesses. Fax and mail the report to CRS within 24 hours.
VBD School Property Damage Report * - Completed only when reporting damage to school property and submitted by fax to CRS within 24 hours. Indicate the who, what, where, when, and why.

Provide a specific and thorough description of the damaged item and of the damage. Specify the location of the damage (e.g., girl's restroom in the gym).
