A deposit of $250 payable via check or credit card is required. The deposit will be returned upon complete return of equipment at the conclusion of the season. To ensure an efficient handout we encourage parents to complete the bottom portion of the equipment waiver and bring a physical copy of it to the session.
All sessions will be held at Howard County Recreation & Parks Headquarters located at 7120 Oakland Mills Rd. Columbia, MD 21046.
If you are not renting our equipment, please still attend a session to get fitted for the game day and practice uniforms.
Pre-orders for practice uniforms are now available for purchase. It is $25 for a practice uniform, which includes a jersey and pants. If you registered prior to Memorial Day (5/30/2022) the practice uniform will be free (early-bird special). To order practice uniforms please bring $25 to equipment handouts or OTAs. The practice uniforms will be handed out the first week of practice (August 1-5).

From Aug 1-5 you will sign in with the Team Administrator each day. You will be asked to fill out a participation form and you can start bringing in your player IDs.
Will be an option for all teams to purchase. They will cost around $80. All players on the team must agree to pay for the uniform or the team will be unable to purchase them, therefore it is a team decision.
If you have not registered for the fall please do ASAP. If you need financial assistance please reach out via email.
We are a 100% volunteer organization. If you would like to volunteer as a Coach or Team Administrator, or would like more information regarding the roles, please speak to a TA at the OTA tables.
All players will need a state issued ID. You can set up an appointment with the MVA, this ID will come in the mail within a week and will be good for five years. Mid Maryland will hold ID nights at Howard County Recreation & Parks HQ, you will receive the ID on the spot, and it will be good for 2 years. When the dates are announced we will share them with everyone.
There will be a program fundraiser starting Tuesday, July 19th, and we will communicate all info with parents.
