About the Indoor Program
The Cecil Soccer League INDOOR Soccer Program begins in early January and goes til about early March. All games are played at the Cecil Arena near Rising Sun High School on RT 272. The league does not rent space for teams to practice during the INDOOR Season and the games are on weekends and weekday evenings. Individual age groups have their games on the same day each week. Starting in 2012 all age groups including Socceroos will play at the Cecil Arena on the turf.
The INDOOR Game is considerably faster than the Outdoor Game as the playing surface is smaller allowing the kids get to touch the ball more frequently and substitutions are done on the fly. The playing surface at the Cecil Arena is Astroturf and the field is surrounded by netting to keep the spectators from getting hit by an out of bounds ball. There are no walls around the playing surface so the ball will go out of bounds (same as the outdoor game). There is a spectator area on the opposite side of the teams and the Arena does have a Snack Bar.
The teams in the INDOOR Program are made up primarily of recreational level players. Travel Team players are permitted and League Officials will place the Travel Players so teams are more evenly matched. The rules of the INDOOR Game are similar to the rules from outdoor; for specific rules go to the Law of the Game Page under the INDOOR Soccer Program.
