Please understand what you get with a Green Hornets’ Football Registration:

  • All Green Hornets’ Football Coaches are certified under the USA Football Heads-up Certification Program.

Scholarships

Partially paid registrations (Full Scholarships are no longer available) are available on an extremely limited basis. Referred to as “scholarships”, these grants are not based on academics, but on need and situation. Our goal is to provide a place for kids to play. Please contact the Commissioner directly and each case will be reviewed individually. To be eligible, athletes must reside in the Severna Park feeder system to Severna Park High School.

Transfer Players

For players seeking a transfer into a new program, Anne Arundel County now requires that a Youth Player Release form be completed before acceptance. http://www.aacounty.org/forms-and-publications/youth-player-release

Any Green Hornets team can accept up to 3 incoming transfers per season that do not meet any exception listed within the Anne Arundel County Parks and Recreation Guidelines and Reference Manual. http://www.aacounty.org/departments/recreation-parks/forms-and-publications/RecPark_Guidelines_Reference_Manual.pdf

Fundraising

We asked, you answered and we listened. So beginning last season we scaled back our fundraising dramatically. Our refined plans include:

The Annual Bull Roast

  • A Bull Roast will be held in the middle of October – details to follow. This is the major fundraising effort for our program – maximum participation is key to our continued success. During the Bull Roast, the Organization holds a Silent Auction for themed “Team Baskets” that have been made from donations from the parents of each team in the program and/or any corporate/commercial donations from any of our corporate sponsors.
Downtown Severna Park Night at Rita’s
  • After successful completion of the second County Weigh-in, the organization as a whole ends practice about 15 minutes early and walks en-mass, in uniform from the Cypress Creek Practice Fields to “downtown Severna Park” to the Rita’s Ice Stand for some refreshment and some community bonding time.
The Huddle
  • The Huddle sells Green Hornets football merchandise. Items range from T-shirts, Hats, player jackets, car magnets and more. Show your support for the program; stop by the Huddle during equipment handouts and select dates during the pre-season.
  • Once in-stock items are sold, all future Spirit Wear will be available via a Green Hornets’ web site. More details on web-site will be provided at season start.
Equipment Sales
  • We again will offer select equipment & practice gear for purchase at equipment handout. Details of available items and pricing will be emailed closer to hand out.
If you have fund raising question or concerns or would like to volunteer, please contact the fund raising coordinator - TBD.
