2017 Fall Football Team Pages

The Severn Seminoles are a member of the Anne Arundel County Youth Football Association (AAYFA)

Teams offered by Severn:

In-House - 5yr olds:  (6 year olds who are not quite ready for tackle will all be screened for this team)

Our in-house program this year will be a flag league designed as a developmental program geared towards introducing the players to the game of football in a not so competitive environment.  The fields are reduced in size and parents are allowed to come on the field to provide a more intimate setting as they cheer on their teams.  

 

Tackle (Travel Teams):

**Note:  AAYFA has instituted a tackle to tackle rule that allows kids in weighted pounds to weigh up to ten pounds over their current weight.  This means that a 80lb player (8yr old) that weighs in at 85lbs is allowed to play with his age group, but can only play on the offensive or defensive live.  They are not allowed to advance the ball.

**The 6-14 (14 if they are not in high school and do not turn 15 during the season) are traveling teams that play most of their 9 game season on within the county with a couple of exceptions (Their are a couple of teams located in Upper Queens Anne and Chesapeake that are a part of our league).  

**In an effort to provide a competitive environment, regardless your experience level.  The league is separted into three divisions as follows:

1.  American

2.  National

3.  Central

** Players will be evaluated and placed in the division that we feel gives them the highest rate of success.  We do this because we want the player as well as the parents experience throughout the season to be an an enjoyable one.  

 

Note:  Players are allowed to play up, but we normally don't like for them to play more than two ages up for safety reasons.
