CHARLES VILLAGE SOCCER CLUB (CVSC) FALL TRAVEL SOCCER: AGES 8 THROUGH 14
CVSC travel teams play in either the Archdiocese of Baltimore Soccer Program (ABSP) or the Central Maryland Soccer Association (CMSA), as determined by coaches and parents. Boys’ and Coed teams play on Saturday and Girls teams Sundays.
Children can begin CVRL travel soccer as early as age 8 at time of sign-up. This is the under 10 (U-10) level. The following chart provides an explanation of the age-groups:
|Age Groups for 2018||ABSP
(DOB falls between)
|U10||8/1/2008 to 7/31/2010|
|U12||8/1/2006 to 7/31/2008|
|U14||1/1/2004 to 7/31/2006|
Players, depending on skill level, can be pushed up an age-group, but not down.
Practices will begin, usually grouped with similar teams, in late July or early August, with either one or two days a week practices. These sessions are rather loose as a lot of players and coaches are away until closer to Labor Day, however, they are a great opportunity to start getting in soccer shape and getting to know teammates.
Attendance at practice becomes mandatory once school begins.
Games will start after Labor Day. Once games begin, practices will be held one or two weeknights a week, with games on the weekend. Boys usually play Saturday and girls Sunday.
How to Register
All registration will be through Sports Illustrated Play (our online registration system — SIPlay). Notifications will go out in July. Players who do not participate in assessments can sign up prior to the start of the season and will be assigned to the waiting list unless there is an opening on a team. Coaches cannot accept players who have not officially registered.
Payments can be made on-line by credit card or with a check via the mail. Checks should be made out to CVRL and mailed to CVRL c/o CVCBD, 2434 St. Paul Street 21218
The base cost for an ABSP team is $125 per player with a $5 per player discount for each additional family member. Further fees may be charged at a later date if your child’s team plays in the CMSA (which has higher fees).
Please follow the sign-up directions in Sports Illustrated Play carefully. You are required to register as an adult (to set up the account and for contact purposes) and then register each child. A child is not registered until you complete the entire process and either pay by credit card or receive a registration number and mail that in with your check.
We will email registered players and post here the practice schedules as soon as they are available.
All players are required to purchase a team jersey. CVRL provides matching socks. Players are required to provide their own black shorts, shin guards and soccer cleats. There is a small collection of donated and outgrown cleats in the sports closet that you are welcome to check out once practice begins.
Any questions? Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for playing! We look forward to another great season.
