Maryland Raiders is a private, full-contact youth football and cheerleading club that was formed in 2012 and was based in Silver Spring, Maryland. It is designed to offer area children the opportunity to not only play football or cheer but to be part of something special. The Maryland Raiders prides itself on not only teaching the X's and O's of football or cheer but we believe in building character in our athletes and relationships with our families. We reward our athletes for academic achievement and present character development traits each week which we believe reinforces wholesome values and builds camaraderie throughout our entire program and community.

Football is a sport that requires a significant amount of practice time to understand game strategy and basic techniques and build the concept of team, therefore it is extremely important that each child attend all practices regularly. Preseason practices are a crucial time for evaluating player fundamentals and skill levels. These evaluations are important for player placement on teams and may ultimately affect the amount of playing time a player has during the regular season.
We understand that practice may begin during previously scheduled vacations and that your player may consequently miss some practice. If this occurs, let one of the registration committee members or coaches in your age group know as soon as possible.
