Stingers Flag Football

This league is designed to help introduce the fundamentals of football to our youngest players and to prepare them to play Tackle Football for the Green Hornets’ beginning at the 70 or 80LB level.

This league is an internal (to the Green Hornets’ Football Program) program that is not run in conjunction with the Anne Arundel Youth Football League nor the Anne Arundel Dept. of Recreation and Parks. We do, however associate our program with the Flag Football program from the Cape St. Claire Cougars and the Panthers Athletic Club in Lake Shore to provide some additional size and variation to the program.

This program is designed to be as “non-competitive” as possible during games (whether between two Green Hornets’ Stingers teams or between a Green Hornets’ team and Cape or Panther teams) so the kids can enjoy playing and learning without having to compete at such a young age.

This league is unique from all others. Season start dates, registration dates
are different from other age groups.

More details will be available in late spring.

Participation Guidelines

  • Players must turn 5 by 1 September to be able to play in the league.
  • The league is designed for pre-K, K and 1st Graders – 2nd Graders are not permitted to play Flag Football in the Green Hornets’ system.
  • The Stingers’ program does not start at the same time as the Tackle teams do – typically, the Stingers’ will form up and hold their first practices after the second week of August. Specific date TBD.
  • Most practices occur one night per week (typically Tuesday nights after the season starts) and games typically occur on Thursday evenings (under the lights) at either Kinder Park’s Game Field or at Bay head Park (Cape St. Claire’s Home Field).
  • Players will be provided a Game Jersey they can keep and a Participation Trophy at the end of the season.
  • Players are strongly encouraged to play with molded cleats on grass surfaces (as opposed to sneakers).
  • Normally the Green Hornets’ will field 5-6 Flag teams and the Cougars and Panthers will add another 5 teams. In past seasons, every team has had the chance to play every other team at least once during a season.
