Youth Football

Youth football is held in the fall season.

There are approximately over 100 Recreation Councils and Athletic Associations throughout Anne Arundel County, which organize teams to enter participants in the Department's organized sports leagues. Contact your community‚Äôs Recreation Councils or Athletic Association to register for youth league sports. With the exception of a few sports, the Department does not register or assign individual players to teams. Established teams register with the Department at our organizational team meetings. 
Visit the Recreation Councils and Athletic Associations for a listing of organizations in your community.

Team registration information for athletic organizations only. Youth sport participants must sign-up through their local athletic organization.
