3rd and Final Weigh In - September 7, 2022 (ARUNDEL MS)


All players must attend one of the three scheduled weigh-ins prior to the season start.  If a player misses the first two weigh-ins and attends the 3rd weigh-in they will be required to sit out at least the first game of the season.

All coaches and team volunteers must complete and pass an Anne Arundel County background check.  Once that background check has been completed the volunteer can attend any of the weigh-ins to get their team ID card.  If you need to complete a background check application please click the link below.
