Team Background Information
The BSC Llamas were formed three years ago under Carroll Manor Travel Soccer. We have steadily improved each year, and in 2012 we joined the Baltimore Soccer Club, while still retaining our ties to Carroll Manor Travel Soccer. We practice at Hydes Field and last year our home games were all at Sweet Air Park.
We generally practice two times a week, although we sometimes add a third training session during the preseason. We start training for the Fall season at the beginning of July.
We usually play in the Central Maryland Soccer Association Fall Saturday League and participate in three Fall tournaments. We also play in the Premier Futsal League in the winter months to develop our footskills.
We take the spring months off to allow team members time to participate in other sports and enjoy some "down time" from soccer. Tryouts for the fall season are held in May of each year (see Tryout section of our website for information on this year's tryouts).
We pride ourselves on offering players a club level soccer experience without their parents having to incur club level costs. Our coaches are volunteers, which avoids the common expense for club soccer teams of having to pay their coaches. We also play most of our games locally, which allows parents to balance soccer with other committments and keeps costs reasonable. Last year, our fall season club fee, which includes league fees, tournaments, player ID's, equipment, and uniforms, was under $300 per player.
In past years we have held pre-season and post-season team parties.
