Intro

CMRC Soccer LogoCMRC Soccer runs in-house play for kids from ages 4 to 16 for about 350 participants. The program is designed for kids of all ability levels to provide a fun and educational soccer experience.  Practice begins around the first week of September and the program wraps up around the first week of November. Please see the appropriate age group tab on this website for a description of each age group’s format.  

Players are required to purchase and wear shin guards in all age groups.  Soccer cleats are required for all age groups above the Hot Shots age group which is 4 and 5 year olds. Cleats are highly recommended for Hot Shots because of the early morning dew and moisture.  

Registration
Sign up early to avoid being put on a wait list and the $50 late fee which will be assessed after registration closes. This fee is to compensate for the additional cost of ordering extra uniforms and the additional time and effort to find additional coaches, form new teams or rosters, and possibly change the schedules.

Registration will open May 15th and close the last day of July. Teams will be formed over the summer, and practice will begin in September. Many age groups end up on wait lists, so please register early! Anybody who registers for In House Rec before the end of May will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win FREE registration for the season!

Wait List
Being placed on a wait list after registration closes is not a guarantee of a spot in the program. There must be a team(s) that needs more players. Forming teams that are too large negatively impacts the players and coaches. Therefore, another volunteer coach will be needed to form a new team comprised of players on the “Wait List”. If no additional volunteer coach emerges, no additional teams will formed from the Wait Listed players. Be sure to register early!!
Volunteer Coaches
Volunteer coaches are supported with a preseason coach’s clinic where an 8 week practice plan/outline for the season will be provided. Volunteer coaches are the life blood of CMRC In House soccer. Please see more under the “Volunteers” tab on this site.
Player/Coach Requests
During registration there is the opportunity to request coaches or playing with friends. While all of these requests are considered, they may not be honored. Our primary objective is to create a fair and completive environment where all of the teams’ skill levels are relatively equal based on the evaluations of players done in the pre-season.
Referees
CMRC soccer utilizes mostly student referees that are all very experienced in playing soccer. Many have refereed for a few years already, and have a desire to give back and learn to be a professional referee. They are not professionals, and the majority, are not adults. But they should be treated as professionals and adults. The CMRC and Baltimore County Rec sports code of conduct will be strictly enforced. The code can be found under the Policies tab. If spectator conduct toward a referee is deemed unacceptable by the referee the spectator will be asked to go to their vehicle and cannot return to the fields for the remainder of the day. If the spectator refuses to do so, the game will be ended and forfeited.
