SRYA Football

South River Youth Athletics (SRYA) Seahawks Football participates in the Anne Arundel County Youth Football Association (AAYFA).

We have teams for players starting from age 6 (under 70lb.) and up to age 14. The county offers three leagues: D1, D2 and D3. D1 is considered a select league in the county and D3 being instructional. 

2022 Registration Opens March 1!

Registration Fee  is $215.00 
The 2022 registration fees cover all mandatory county league fees, league officials’ fees, maintenance fees, county fee’s, SRYA fee and game socks. Each player will get to keep the practice jersey and socks

NOTE: The county and AAYFA have changed the format of the divisions by adding an additional 10 lbs to each weighted division. They are no longer 70lb, 80lb, 90lb, and 100lb. The new format is U7,U8,U9, and U10. The unlimited class hasn't changed.
