About Our Program
The intramural program, there are two soccer seasons, a fall season and a spring season. The fall season starts in early September and runs until the beginning of November depending on the weather. The spring season starts in early March and normally runs until the end of April beginning of May depending on the weather.
Practices are about 60-75 minutes. Coaches are volunteers and are only required to hold at least one practice a week. Your team’s practice schedule will be determined by your assigned volunteer coach. Practices are generally held between 5pm and 7pm.
Games are held mostly on Saturdays and fields within the city of Bowie. Dates, times and locations for make-up games are coordinated by the two head coaches.
The only equipment required for your child is soccer shin pads and plenty of water. If possible, it is recommended that each player also have soccer cleats and their own ball at practice but these are not mandatory. Coaches are provided a bag with some equipment which includes 5 or so soccer balls. Remember though that the more balls there are, the more time each child gets to have a ball at their feet and practice their skills. Also, baseball and football cleats with a front cleat ARE NOT allowed for soccer
