About Our Program
The intramural program has two soccer seasons – fall and spring. 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 or 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 5:00 pm and 7:00 pm.
Games are played primarily on Saturdays and on fields within the city of Bowie. Dates, times, and locations for make-up games are coordinated by the head coaches.
The only equipment required for your child are soccer shin pads and plenty of water. 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 approximately five soccer balls. The more balls that are available, 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.
