Fall 2014 Dates and Deadlines

July 1, 2014


Dear CMSA members,


Congratulations on another successful season of CMSA soccer.  Here are the dates and deadlines for the Fall 2014 season.  We strongly encourage you to get this information to your coaches as soon as possible so that they can plan accordingly.  Remember that these are the dates, fees, and deadlines set by CMSA.  You many want to adjust your fees and dates to best suit your club’s fees and deadlines.


All team commitment forms must have Risk Management, E-License, and contact information for all coaches listed on the team commitment form.  If information is missing, your team may not be scheduled.



   Coaches must wear their pass cards and RM cards on their lanyards during all games.  No adult should be coaching unless this lanyard is worn.

   All player and coach pass cards must be laminated.

   Teams must occupy opposite sides of the field whenever possible with their perspective parents and fans on the same side as their team (unless field design prevents this).  The half field line on BOTH sides should be clear of fans and players to distinguish substitutes entering the game.
