|Welcome to the RYAL Website
We are awaiting final approval for the league's access to the fields at Annapolis High school for the fall soccer program. At this juncture, we will step out in faith and conduct a MAIL ONLY registration. Fees for fall soccer will remain the same as in years past: $35 per player with a maximum of $100 for any one family. Please download the release and registration forms from the website and send signed copies along with a CHECK to:
567 Wayward Dr.
Annapolis, MD 21401
Please complete your mail in registration by July 8th, 2015. Again, we would ask that you pay by CHECK ONLY so that we are able to simply void the checks should the fields not be available.
Also, we ask that you pray for God's faithfulness in sustaining the league as it enters its 22nd soccer season. Enjoy your summer and by God's grace, we will see everyone back on the pitch at the end of August.

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
