Our field use has changed at the last minute.  Please forward to your friends who may not be on our mailing list.  On Thursdays and Saturdays, RYAL now has one field in the front of the school, and one field in the back of the school.  We will NOT have access to the fields on Saturday, Sept 5, 26, or Oct. 3.  

For Thursdays, we have full access to the fields, starting at 7 PM.  Pratice will go from 7pm until dark, Sep 3rd.  Future practices TBD.  
This will take a little more coordination than typical. Here’s the plan:
8:45: One E level game in front of the school (teams change weekly, see below).  The C level game in the back of the school

10:00: One E level game in the front of the school (teams change weekly, see below). The A and B level games in the back of the school.

League Description:
The Recreational Youth Athletic League (RYAL) is, as its name implies, a youth athletic program that places a priority on recreation as opposed to competition. Based in the Annapolis, Maryland area, RYAL is open to all children ages 5 to 16 in and around Anne Arundel County, with an emphasis on having each child enjoy participation in sports (primarily soccer) in an atmosphere of affirmation and sensitive instruction. "Success" is measured by the children's 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 has registered.

The spring season generally runs from April to early June each year. The last two seasons we have only met and played games on Saturdays. No weekday practices. Soccer is available for all ages and ultimate frisbee is available for older children. For the last several years we have played at Annapolis Senior High School on Riva Road.
The fall soccer season generally runs from late August to early November each year. Registration and skills assessment are held in mid-June. Practices are held one weeknight (typically Thursdays) and games are held on Saturdays. For the last several years we have played at Annapolis Senior High School on Riva Road. View Soccer Rules
