Football signups continue this week

The Washington County Junior Football League is adding two more registration days.

The dates are being added due to the large number of interested players and cheerleaders that did not get the chance to register at Valley Mall because there was not enough time to handle the large number of interested youth.

Registration will be Wednesday and Friday at the Nike outlet at Prime Outlets from 6 to 8 p.m.

All paperwork and payment is due at the time of signup. Bring two proofs of residence (bills showing address), the most recent report card and an original birth certificate.

The league fee is $75 for football players and $45 for cheerleaders, which includes the league fundraiser. There are discounts for siblings. For more information, contact Becky Payne at 301-573-9985.
