Season Snaphot

Registration  for Fall opens at the beginning of May

Practices will begin the first or second week of August as first games typically begin 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 5th 1-5pm and Monday June 6th 6p-8pm.   Specific age level times will be confirmed closer to evaluations.

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. Every player should attend at least ONE evaluation to be placed on an appropiate team. Two is recommended to ensure the best assessment is made of the player.  We will also be utilizing up to the first 2 weeks of practices to finalze Middie & Junior teams.
