|Spring Soccer 2013:
The season begins April 6th at Annapolis High School. There will be no set teams due to the aperiodic attendance of our participants in the spring. We have been blessed with having access to all our normal fields in the rear of the school, the only difference being that we must access them to the right of the school, near the tennis courts due to ongoing construction. Please honor the school's wishes in accessing the fields only via this route. We will be utilizing the following schedule throughout April and May for the notated age groups:
0845-1000: 5-6 and 14-18
1000-1115: 7-8, 9-10, and 11-13
If you have not made payment or turned in the required paperwork, please bring it with you on Saturday. Also remember that shin guards are required and players without them will not be allowed to participate. This also applies to mouth guards for those with dental appliances.
Also, please read this memo from Anne Arundel County Public Schools regarding the use of fire lanes and make an effort to park only in marked spaces.

enjoyment (i.e., fun!), their own sense of personal
accomplishment, the depth of friendships established, and the
development of individual character.
The league is intended to be flexible, adapting to both the
number of children who sign up and the skill levels they bring to
the league. Hence, the number of divisions and the age groupings
thereof vary from season to season to accommodate the group that
