Football FAQs

What does my registration fee pay for?
Your registration fee goes to providing items including game uniforms, shoulder pads, practice equipment, field rental fees, league administrative fees, referee fees, etc.

What do I have to provide for my child?
Parents will provide black integrated game day pants and their child’s equipment of a more personal nature.  This includes their helmet, practice pants, practice jersey, cleats, socks, protective athletic cup and mouthpiece (must be a colored mouthpiece, not clear).  Click here to view the suggestion shopping check list.

Additionally, each parent must provide their child’s coach with a valid Identification Card. This identification card is used to identify each child during weigh-ins prior to each game.  It is obtained from the CCYFL  (valid for 2 years) and can be purchased during weigh ins and must be turned in to your coach or team mom by the end of the second week of practice. The card will remain in the coach’s possession until the end of the season. This is a firm requirement for participation and is a rule established by CCFL.  Your child will not be allowed to participate in league games without it.  If you currently have a Maryland identification card for your child you may continue to use it until it expires but the league has asked us to use their ID cards moving forward.

When does practice start? How often will we practice and where?
Equipment hand out will be on July 25, 2022. Full pad practice begins July 27, 2022.  During the month of August and until school begins, practices are typically held 4-5 days per week, Monday thru Friday from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm. We will also schedule scrimmage games to help prepare for the season and they will be played on Saturdays.

After school begins, practices will be reduced to 3 days per week. If there is a bye week, coaches may elect to have an additional practice in place of a game.  Specific practice days will be determined by each team’s coach before the school year begins and may vary depending on field availability.

When is the first game?
The first game for the 2022 Season will be on Saturday, August 27, 2022.  CCFL releases game schedules in the summer.  The regular season is typically 9 games long.  Our home field is located at Damascus High School. Away games will take place in Howard, Carroll, Montgomery and Baltimore counties. Directions will be provided.
