The CMSA co-ed indoor soccer league will consist of one 8-week session running from Nov. 17 through Jan. 19. To kick off the season Nov. 17, there will be an 'open play' scrimmage—a mixed, round robin two hours of play where all players can be assessed in an effort to create four equally balanced teams. Team rosters will then be finalized after the open play session, and participants will be placed onto one of four teams for seven-on-seven play. In addition to the round-robin session on the 17th, each team will play six regular season games and one playoff game.
As each player's skill level will be considered in the creation of four well-balanced teams, the CMSA indoor season is geared towards players of beginning, intermediate and advanced skill levels. Some prior soccer experience would be very helpful.
Registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis. The league will require a minimum of 50 and be capped at 56 players. All players should bring identification, outstanding payment, shin guards, appropriate shoes, a white t-shirt and a dark t-shirt Nov. 17.
A registration party will be held Nov. 4 at 3-5 p.m. at Spin ( Halsted and Belmont ) . Advanced registration can occur online through the CMSA Web site ( www.chicagomsa.co ) .
