GREEN HORNETS FOOTBALL: 2017 SEASON

Season & Important Dates

One of the biggest drawbacks to non-diehard football fans is the season length and commitment. We have tried to improve as best we could from an organizational standpoint to make it less demanding with some changes as well as provide dates for planning.

We have finally been successful in getting the County and the AAYFA to agree to move the start dates for the season back a week – therefore, the Green Hornets’ will begin practice on 1 Aug this season.

  • Equipment hands out dates are set. Five separate dates including four weekdays have been selected. Similar to last year, you may choose which one works best for your schedule.
  • The County and Green Hornets start the season Aug 1st This first week is without pads. Starting Aug 7th , full pads are allowed per your Coaches instructions.

In addition, the county shortened the season by two full weeks to allow for Thanksgiving holiday plans and a short break before winter sports tryouts.
