Fall Sports

Fall Travel Registration is now open!

Sign up here: SportsIllustratedPlay


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 2017 ABSP

(DOB  falls between)

U10 8/1/2007 to 7/31/2009
U12 8/1/2005 to 7/31/2007
U14 1/1/2003 to 7/31/2005

Players, depending on skill level, can be pushed up an age-group, but not down.

Team Formation:

For the Fall 2017 season, assessments will be held on June 6-7th at Herring Run Park – 2264 Chesterfield Avenue, Baltimore , MD, 21213.

Assessment schedule is as follows:

  • June 6​ Boys U10 6pm – 7:00pm ○ Boys U12 7pm – 8:00pm 
  • June 7 ​ ​Girls U10 & U12 6pm – 7:00pm ○ Boys U14 & Girls U14 7pm – 8:00pm

The number of teams we have is determined by the number of coaches – at least two per team – as well as the number of players per age-group.   In the past, we have been able to place all players who attend the June assessments.  If we have more players than teams to coach them, we will need to recruit more coaches to form new teams in order to accommodate them.  So please volunteer!  New teams will be formed as and when we get more coaches.  

Please contact CVRL at charlesvillagerec@gmail.com if you are able to help!

Players are then informed of their placement on a team. Existing teams fill their roster (depending on open slots). New teams fill on a first to sign up basis.

The Season:

Attendance at practice becomes mandatory once school begins. There will also be one mandatory team meeting for all players and parents between August 31st and Sept 6th. Information will be sent to parents ahead of the event.

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). Registration is required to participate in the assessments. After assessments, players will be invited to join existing teams. If teams are full, you will be notified that your player is on a wait-list pending volunteers to coach them.  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 $95 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 will be loaned a team jersey. In order to manage our costs, a $25 check will be required for the jersey. We will return the check when the jersey is returned at the end of the season. CVRL also 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.
