AGE REQUIREMENTS:

Fall Football is open to boys and girls between the ages of 5 and 14.

 

EQUIPMENT NEEDED:

Parents must provide their child(ren) with the appropriate football equipment including: football cleats (metal spikes not permitted), black 7-piece pad set, and a mouth piece.

 

AGE DETERMINATION:

The child's age as of September 1st of the current year determines the team that they are assigned to.

 

PROOF OF IDENTIFICATION:

Please note that we have converted to MVA identification cards.  ALL players must have an MVA card by September 1, 2017 to participate (no exceptions); therefore, you need to go to the MVA by mid-August as the ID is mailed to your mailing address (be sure to double check the address on file with the MVA to ensure it is current to avoid delays) and usually arrives within 7-10 business days.

 

Please visit http://www.mva.maryland.gov/ to address any questions you may have regarding locations, hours, and accepted documentation for your child’s ID card (birth certificate, social security card, etc.).  The cost is $15.  For convenience, please consider getting your child’s MVA card during the summer break.
