In preparation for the upcoming 2014 Charles County Independent Youth Sports League (CCIYSL)/Hurricane football season, each player must have a Player Identification Card to complete the age verification to CCIYSL officials at the weigh-in certification, beginning August 15th. Acceptable ID Cards will be those issued by the Maryland State Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA). An out-of-state ID card is also permitted for any player who currently resides out of state (i.e., Washington, D.C., or Virginia). A Military Dependent ID card (United States Uniformed Services Identification Card) is NOT an acceptable form of certification. The MVA ID cards cost $15.00.
These cards will be required at the official weigh-in for the Board representative to certify upon compliance with the prescribed weight guidelines. Each player’s ID card will be available at all league games for verification of that child’s age and weight. Either the coach or club official shall have custody of the ID cards. It is the responsibility of the home team to ensure ID cards are checked. Each ID will be returned to the participant after the team’s final game.
August 15th is just around corner, so I encourage those who plan to participate in the 2014 CCIYSL/Hurricane football season to go out and obtain your child’s ID card as soon as possible.
