Registration for Fall opens at the beginning of May and will CLOSE on August 1st so we have time to register teams with the county before the deadline.
Practices will begin around the second week of August as first games typically begin the first Sunday after Labor Day. Coaches will contact parents with the exact days, times and field locations of all team events via Sport Sign Up app, be sure to download to remain up to date on any changes. Season schedules are released by Anne Arundel County Parks and Rec and are often quite close to the first game weekend allowing for all rosters to be accurate across all participating groups.
Evaluations for Middies (5th & 6th grade) and Juniors (7th & 8th grade) will take place on Sunday June 4th Middies check in at 3:30pm and eval 4-6pm. Juniors check in at 5:30pm and eval 6-8pm. Monday June 5th Middies check in at 6:15 pm with eval from 6:45pm-7:45pm and Juniors check in at 7:15pm with eval from 7:45-9pm.

Players will be evaluated and placed on a team that best fits their skill level. Players who are registered will be notified of the evaluation dates by email as well.
