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. MSYSA teams will need to affilate with either SAY (Soccer Association for Youth) or US Club to have the necessary insurance to play in these CMSA Leagues.
The CMSA Spring League will end on Sunday 5/20 after the scheduled games are played or cancelled
If any game is cancelled on 5/20 those games will not be rescheduled by the League. Teams will have until the evening of 6/3 to reschedule & play the games cancelled on 5/13 & 5/20 with their opponent
Boys' teams need to contact Lou Webster & Girls' teams need to contact Mike Agudelo for their opponents contact information.
Once the coaches agree on a Date, Time & Location they will need to give that information to Lou & Mike so that we can try to get officials.
Teams MUST PLAY with their certified STAMPED LEAGUE ROSTER
Teams that can not produce thier certified roster will be credited with a FORFEIT loss and a $50.00 Fine.
All Spring Rosters (US Club & SAY) are frozen as of Sunday 4/22; Players can no longer be added to LEAGUE ROSTERS.
