About the Indoor Program

The Cecil Soccer League INDOOR Soccer Program begins in early January and goes til about early March. Games this year will be played at the Cecil Arena near Rising Sun High School on RT 272 and at All Seasons Sports Academy on Elkton Blvd in Elkton. The league does not rent space for teams to practice during the INDOOR Season and all the games will be on weekends this season.  Individual age groups have their games on the same day each week.

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  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 field and both facilities 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.

Mission Statement

The objective of youth soccer should be for the players to have fun. Coaches and parents should teach good sportsmanship, self-reliance, and teamwork. The emphasis should not be on winning, but on team participation and self-improvement in skills, coordination, and strategy.

The goal of every youth soccer coach should be to provide every player with opportunities to reach his maximum potential in the game of soccer. Coaches must balance fun and discipline according to the ages and ability levels of their players. Coaches should evaluate players’ strengths and weaknesses in such areas as size, speed, physical strength, endurance, coordination, ball control, and tactical abilities-the ability to read and understand the game of soccer.

The league places the game of soccer ahead of any desire to win, regardless of level of play. If any administrator or coach, no mater how capable, fails to control his, or has players who consistently contravene the laws of soccer, the League will act to remedy the situation. Disciplinary action may include the suspension or expulsion of either the coach, the player, or the team. Such discipline should only come when absolutely necessary and only after the other avenues for remedial action have been exhausted.
