From Harco Horns:
Youth Football in Harford County takes a leap forward in offering middle school age youth an opportunity to play unlimited, age-only football. The Harco Horns revolutionize youth football by providing boys ages, 11-13 years of age, regardless of weight class, to learn and play the game of football, while also focusing on academic achievement, social responsibility and physical fitness and nutrition. Randy Kail, along with other coaches recognized this gap in offering youth after school football insuring that every player who wants to play football can learn to play the game, or improve their game. Kail states, “Football is more than what happens on the field, and we are making certain that our players can take advantage of every opportunity available to them, gearing them toward success not only in the game, but also in school and life.”
Randy states, “Football is a complicated game. If these youth wait until they reach high school to learn the game, they will not be able to keep pace with their peers. Likewise, we want to make sure that our players are not only disciplined on the field but to apply the same learning patterns to the classroom, social responsibility, and keeping fit. We have 60 boys signed up with the Harco Horns and have been practicing all summer; these 60 players represent 3 teams who will face off with other teams in primarily in Anne Arundel County (the only league offering this type of product).
Aldino Sod Farm has provided practice fields over the summer, football Clinics have been held at the Arena Club, and John Carroll School will provide practice fields during our regular season. The first games kicks off on August 28, 2010, with time and place to be announced.
Kail goes on to say, “As a nonprofit, we are asking the business community to step up and provide game sponsorships, becoming part of this ground-breaking way to play the game of football – to make sure that every youth between 11 – 13 gets the chance to participate when they reach high school. Everyone wins with the Harco Horns, as we will offer businesses visibility on the game program, announcements, and on our website – to make sure the community is aware of who is supporting this innovative approach to football, our players and the community at large.
