SMYO Soccer Policies
SMYO POLICY - We can not accept requests for specific coaches, teams, or practice nights. Please consider coaching if you need to have specific nights and times for practices. Volunteer coaches choose the practice nights and times that fit in their schedules. If you have any questions, please select the COACHING tab on the left.
SMYO SOCCER POLICY - Players will play in the age group according to their birth date. If a player wants to move up to another age group, the Soccer Commissioners must evaluate the player during a game and practice. The Soccer Commissioners will hold discussions with the coach and parents.
SMYO SOCCER POLICY - SMYO is part of the Southern Maryland Youth Soccer League along with 5 other soccer organizations. Players can not be on an SMYO soccer team as well as another Charles County recreational team within Southern Maryland Youth Soccer League (SMYSL).
SMYO SOCCER POLICY - Players registering late will not be guaranteed placement on their prior team.
SMYO SOCCER POLICY - During the rostering process, the Soccer Commissioner attempts to place players on the same team as the last season. There are many factors to rostering players, this may not always be possible due to players aging up, coaches not coaching for that season, registration numbers are low.
SMYO Soccer Commissioner reserves the right to ensure that all teams have an even distribution of ages among the age groups and player gender.
