The Central Maryland Soccer Association was created to promote the sport of soccer "as a complete entity." We believe that all teams and organizations, no matter on what level (recreation travel or club), deserve to be recognized and their participants represented equally. The CMSA recognizes the autonomy of all soccer organizations and their right to choose where they would like to affiliate. The CMSA will operate under an "open" membership policy recognizing all reciprocating USSF affiliates.
