Registration is open to all Calvert county and non-county residents.
Due to recent events involving COVID-19, there are many unknowns related to near-future public events and activities. Nevertheless, we are planning accordingly with the expectation that some of the current restrictions may be lifted by the time our season begins. With that said, our online registration is now open. Payment is not required at this time. We encourage all players to register in order to have an accurate player count to plan for the season ahead. When you register your player the automated system will give you the option to pay your balance. You are not required or expected to pay your balance now. Payments will only be collected later if we are given the green light. Any registration fees paid will be refunded should the season be cancelled.
HYC will only proceed with the 2020 football/cheer season in accordance with the guidelines set forth by the State of Maryland, SMYAC and CCPR. Player health and safety will be our number one priority and we will provide updates to our website and Facebook pages as they become available.
General Season info:
The cheerleading season runs from August to approximately the end of November. The total number of games that you will cheer will be based on the Football teams/divisions and your head coach's discretion. There are normally a total of 10 games played by the football players, depending on whether a team qualifies for the Calvert Classic. The top 4 teams in each football division qualify for the Playoffs.
The Calvert County Youth Football League (CCYFL) is now known as the Southern Maryland Youth Athletic Conference (SMYAC).
Huntingtown Hurricanes * Prince Frederick Eagles * Solomons Steelers * Dunkirk Warriors * Owings Outlaws * Beach Buccaneers
Leonardtown Wildcats * Pax River Raiders * Mechanicsville Braves * LaPlata Blue Knights * Hughesville Hurricanes
Cheerleaders are placed on squads based on birth year, cheer skills, maturity and balance across the squads. Registering your child on a team, does not guarantee their place on that team. The Cheer Commissioners and Head Coaches will make team assignments based on age, cheer skills, maturity, and balance across the teams. You will be notified of your team assignment and coach prior to the start of the season.
