2015 Fall Football Information
PRACTICE INFORMATION: Fall football for the 2015 Season will begin on Monday, July 20, 2015. During the summer months, all teams (70lb-Varsity U) practice Monday - Friday from 6pm - 8:00pm. When school starts, all Coaches cut practices to two or three nights per week. Which nights will be at your Coaches discretion. The first week of practice is always held *without equipment*. The second week, Coaches will begin holding practices in full equipment or helmets only; depending on the schedule of the team and as weather permits.
FIELD INFORMATION: All OMYA practices are held at OLD MILL SOUTHGATE Park. There are TWO entrances to our field. The "football side" entrance is off of Old Mill Blvd (which is off of Old Mill Road), this entrance brings you closest to the football field. The other entrance is off of Oakwood Road and brings you closer to the baseball fields (where several teams practice) and the Green Building (where equipment hand outs take place).
GAMES: AACO Recreation & Parks schedules all games for our entire season. Game locations are determined and set by Recreation and Parks depending on availability and numerous other factors. OMYA uses both Old Mill High School and Glen Burnie High School as our "HOME" fields on game days. However, while we have use of these fields, we are considered a guest of the schools. Therefore; we must adhere to certain rules set in place by AACO R&P and OMYA Administrators.
GAME SCHEDULES: All game schedules are created by Anne Arundel County Recreation and Parks Department. Most games are scheduled Saturdays and Sundays at various times, Friday evening games are occasionally scheduled. Typically, the youngest teams (70lb.) play the earliest in the morning. OMYA has no control over game schedules or game locations.
UNIFORMS: All OMYA players are issued a set of OM shoulder pads (including straps), one red OM helmet (including chin straps), one pair of integrated practice pants, one pair of integrated game pants, one game jersey, one mouth piece. Players are responsible to have their own cleats and athletic supporter.
EQUIPMENT DEPOSIT CHECK: Every year OMYA requires an Equipment Deposit Check for each player. Checks are made payable to OMYA, dated for 11/01/2015, in the amount of $250.00. These checks are HELD by the Secretary. Your check will be returned to you at the end of the season; when all OMYA equipment is returned. If the equipment is held and not returned within 2 weeks of the close of the season, or your departure from the team, your check is cashed and the equipment becomes yours to keep.
