Team Placements

Since Colonial Sports Ministry has grown to more than 3000 participants annually, we are no longer able to accommodate every request. However, we can:

  • Allow you to select one night you unable to practice
  • Allow your children to play on the same team of whomever you invite (as long as they have never participated in CSM)
  • Do our best to have siblings practice on the same night

Practices

  • Practices will be held once per week either on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday
  • Players will practice at either 5:00-6:15 pm or 6:15 - 7:30 pm starting the week of August 27th.
  • You will be able to exclude one practice night.
  • Practice days will remain the same for the entirety of the season.
  • Practices will not be made up if inclement weather causes a cancellation. (please view our complete weather policy)

Games

  • Games will begin on Saturday, September 8th and conclude on Saturday, October 20th (7 games).
  • Games are played on Saturdays between 8am - 4:30pm
  • Each game will be 60 minutes long consisting of four 12 minute quarters (2 minute break after the 1st quarter, a 5 minute half-time, and a 2 minute break after the 3rd quarter).
  • All games will be played at Colonial.
  • Since we are a recreational league, we ask all our coaches to have their players play varied positions throughout the season.

Equipment

Required equipment includes:

  • a mouth piece

  • shorts with no pockets

  • Cleats are optional, but suggested.

  • As we will provide footballs for teams to use, players should not bring their own football to the field.

Testimonial

 

I am truly grateful for the opportunity to be a part of these young men's lives. I can say that these young men are on the right path. As we conducted devotion time these young men were articulate with their answers and some quoted scripture. I was very encouraged by this and coach Mark and I really encouraged them with their faith walk. I do enjoy coaching and mentoring, it is a great opportunity to encourage and be a positive influence in the lives of many.
