COCKEYSVILLE EAGLES FOOTBALL Frequently Asked Questions
Q: WHERE DO WE PRACTICE AND PLAY OUR GAMES?
A: All practices and home games are at the County Home Park facility located on Greenside Drive directly across the street from the NEW PAL Center and next to the Cockeysville Public Library and tennis courts. Away games and locations will be noted on the game schedule to be distributed in August.
Q: WHERE/WHEN IS EQUIPMENT HANDED OUT?
A: All equipment is stored on site at the County Home Park facility. Dates for equipment distribution will be announced by e-mail and disbursed by age groups. A signed Equipment Loaner Agreement and deposit of ($100) are REQUIRED. Your deposit will be returned to you when your equipment is returned at the end of the season. If you fail to return your equipment, your deposit will be kept.
Q: WHEN IS PRACTICE?
A: The first official practice will always be the last week in July as long as that day doesn't fall on a Sunday. We practice four (4) days per week (Monday – Thursday) during the months of July/August. Practices will be from 6-8 PM. During the season and after school begins, practices will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6-8 PM. This program is designed to provide a healthy and enjoyable experience for your child. However, this is not a licensed childcare program and is not designed to provide childcare. Therefore, parents are encouraged to attend and discuss attendance expectations with their children. Department staff cannot detain youth wishing to leave at any time.
Q: HOW MANY GAMES ARE IN A SEASON?
A: The first games of the season will be the last weekend in August. The season is a ten (8) week regular season, followed by a three (3) week play-off (qualifiying teams). Most games will be played on Saturdays, with each team having the opportunity of playing the occasional Friday night game.
Firm dates for upcoming events and additional information will be distributed throughout the year as necessary by e-mail. We welcome you and are excited about this upcoming season!
