Welcome to the BCRC Soccer website!   Our soccer league is comprised of 2 Programs – our Travel Program for players in U9 through U19 ages and our Academy Program for U5 through U8 ages. Age groups are based on the player’s age on 7/31/2014. For example, if the player turns 10 before 7/31/2014 they would be placed in the U12 division.  The Academy, U10 COED and U14 Girls Registration is still open.

The BCRC Academy Soccer Program

  • Provides basic skill and soccer concepts to the players and parents while exposing the players to a fun and no pressure environment.
  • U5 players will participate in the BCRC Academy Clinic that is held once a week and is formatted to teach the basics of soccer with no games or competitive events.
  • U6 players also participate in the Academy Clinic program, but also play in scrimmages with other U6 teams within the Academy on Saturdays.
  • U7 and U8 teams play in the Penta-League which combines to play other U7 and U8 teams from other local soccer programs on Saturdays.
  • All Academy players will receive a team t-shirt; no uniform is required
  • All players receive a participation award at the end of the season.

The BCRC Travel Soccer Program

  • Provides competitive soccer for players U9 through U19
  • We are part of the Frederick County Youth Soccer League (FCYSL) and our season consists of 8 regular season games and an optional end of season tournament
  • All Travel Soccer players must wear a BCRC uniform that you may order upon registration

Registrations done online must be paid for via a credit card or PayPal account. If you wish to pay by check, you must mail it with your completed registration form. All registrations must be received by the deadline in order to be guaranteed a spot on a team. The current fees are:

  • U19 players will have a t-shirt included in your registration.  Players will be responsible for supplying thier own black shorts and socks to complete thier uniform.

BCRC also offers a "recycle/ reuse" uniform donation program.  Please consider donating any gently used BCRC uniforms, so that they can be given, free of charge, to other players.  Also accepted are usable cleats, socks and shin guards. This program helps defray the costs of playing soccer, for those who wish to use it.

Important Dates:

  • Registrations received prior to January 18th will receive a $10 discount on the registration fee
  • Late registrations are not guaranteed a spot on a team

The BCRC Soccer program is run strictly by volunteers.  If we don't have coaches and administrators, we can't offer playing opportunities.  Our program is in desperate need of administrative help, especially persons who can act as liaisons between BCRC Soccer and member families and/or the leagues we participate in.  Registration fees are waived or discounted for players whose family members serve in significant volunteer positions.  Please consider volunteering so we can keep our program running effectively. 

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns by sending an e-mail to
