As our 2016 registration period comes to a close on the 20th, I will also be closing out all our county administrative requirements. Your team moms were given a spreadsheet with a list of those still having some form of obligation still pending. It's nothing to get alarmed about because a pending obligation could be anything from verification of payments to a simple missing document or signature on required registration paperwork. I will be on the hill today at Queenstown Park from 7:00 - 8:00 pm to address all questions or concerns.
Note: 2016 Fall football schedule should be posted by end of day on Monday. Please do not call the county about the schedule. When ready, it will be posted at the following link: (Click the Team Schedules and choose your teams division to view the appropriate schedule)

If a participant in our County leagues wants to change organizations (by sport) from the previous season, a youth player release form from the previous organization is required and must be attached to the youth player’s contract. Our youth player contract is not valid without this release (youth player release forms can be downloaded from our website).
o Organizations/coaches that fail to follow this policy may be subject to disciplinary action to include probation and/or suspension.
o Organizations/coaches who improperly recruit may be subject to disciplinary action to include probation and/or suspension.
Teams offered by Severn:
Fall Flag Football - 5 -6 yr old:
Our in-house program is designed as a developmental program geared towards introducing the players to the game in a not so competitive environment. Once organizations submit the number of teams they will have competing for the year, a schedule is created with each organization hosting at-least one game. The fields are reduced in size for all games.
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 separaed into three divisions as follows:
** 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.
Teams and Ages:
Notes: Players are allowed to play up, but we normally don't like for them to play more than two ages up for safety reasons.
70lb - 6-7 yr old (Note: If a player turns 8 before the anytime during the year they must participate in 8 year old category.)
80lb - 8 yr old
90lb - 9 yr old
100lb - 10 yr old
* There is no weight limit for the unlimited teams.
Please send questions about the program to the one of the following emails:
In house tackle football for 4/5 year olds. This gives parents an option for their 4/5 year olds to begin the transition from flag football to competitive tackle football.
Under this program, players will be equipped with full gear and will learn the skills the big boys do. Since this is an in house program, the strength of the program is dependent upon the number of 4/5 year olds that participate. It is our hope to be able to field at least two in house teams that will compete against other organizations in the county.
If you would like to discuss this program with the Commissioner, please contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org
