General information
Notify Randy Rupp (current web master) of any typos found on these pages ( rpr5906@comcast.net ).

The 9U through 19U teams usually play in the Frederick County Youth Soccer League (FCYSL).  While most teams are in Frederick and Washington counties, there are FCYSL teams in West Virginia and Pennsylvania, and Carroll county MD.

Teams have a minimum of 3 home games in an 8 game regular season.  The league also holds an optional 2 day end-of-season tournament, usually 1 week after the season ends.   Spring 2017 regular season games start March 25  There are no games Easter weekend.  There are no games scheduled for Mother's day.  The league tries to schedule most games on Saturdays.  There are Sunday games when an age group has an odd number of teams.  Sunday games start at 1PM or later.  Saturday games start 9 AM or later.  Generally the younger age groups start earlier in the day. 

Rainout make-up games may be scheduled during the week, but the two coaches involved are the ones that set the time and day for make-up games.


Parents: there is no need to become an eteamz (nor the new name active.com) member. All BCRC pages should be viewable by anyone.

BCRC Soccer would like to thank The Community Foundation of Frederick County for a grant that covered the portable goals (used for games) and the pop-up goals (used at practices). The grant also covered a laptop that was used to keep the registration database.
