The Hurricanes are moving forward this year in a new league, the Southern Maryland Youth Athletic Conference (SMYAC) and with new programs.
The Hurricanes are pleased to announce the addition of a 6u Flag Football Program to our organization this year. This flag football league is designed to be an introduction to the game of football for 5 & 6 year olds. This team will be non-competitive in nature and will focus on teaching the fundamentals of football.
Our Cheerleading Team is also working on some exciting opportunities for our cheerleaders.
Registration fees are $175 for both cheer and football. Flag football $100. We offer family discounts for families registering more than 2 children. 1st and 2nd child $175 each and then each additional child is $50. Discount applies to siblings in the same family only.
The Board of Directors would like to WELCOME all new players, cheerleaders, and parents to the Hurricanes. A big WELCOME BACK all our returning players, cheerleaders, and parents to the HURRICANE FAMILY. We are excited about the upcoming season and look forward to seeing familiar faces and new faces this season.
The Hughesville Hurricanes Board is pleased to announce that we are now a member of the Southern Maryland Youth Athletic Conference (SMYAC). Moving to the SMYAC was based on what we as a Board of Directors felt is best for our organization, our athletes, and our Hurricane Families. This decision to move away from the Charles County Independent Youth Sports League (CCIYSL) was not an easy decision to make. The Hurricanes have enjoyed being part of the Charles County League for the past 6 years and have been a strong supporter of football in Charles County.
The decision to move was based on what we thought was best for our organization and actions of other Charles County organizations. We did not feel there was going to be full participation in 2015 season from all CCYISL organizations which was apparent from our last CCIYSL board meeting in which all organizations did not attended. To our Board this was foretelling of the future of CCIYSL and unfortunately an indication that there would continue to be a decline in the number of teams organizations would place in the league. Moving forward we felt playing the same team possibly 3 times in the regular season was not conducive towards the growth of our athletes and the direction we as an organization wanted to repeat. The Hurricanes Board felt it was in our best interest to join the SMYAC. We are extremely excited about this opportunity and are looking forward to the new competitive challenges.
The SMYAC will now be comprised of 14 organizations located in Southern Maryland, which include the Hughesville Hurricanes, Southern Maryland Hawks, St. Leonard Lions, Waldorf Wildcats, Beach Buccaneers, Dunkirk Warriors, Huntingtown Hurricanes, LaPlata Blue Knights, Leonardtown Wildcats, Mechanicsville Braves, Owings Outlaws, Pax River Raiders, Prince Frederick Eagles, and the Solomons Steelers. There are still no border restrictions, welcoming the participation of residents living in all surrounding counties.
SMYAC football rules and regulations are very similar to those that the Hurricanes played under last season. We expect very few changes; however any changes that are made will be communicated to you.
The Hurricanes Board is very excited about the 2015 season and the forthcoming changes for our youth by playing in the SMYAC. We will provide additional information on the rules, weigh-chart, field locations, and the SMYAC League over the next few months.
The Hurricanes will be opening online (www.hughesvillehurricanes.com) Football and Cheer registration in April. With this new direction we anticipate registration to grow significantly this upcoming season. We have already received numerous inquiries about 2015 Football and Cheer registration thus to secure your spot please register online early.
