Coaching Opportunity - 7th Grade Soccer Coach
Camden Rockport Middle School is accepting applications for a Soccer Coach for the 2018-2019 season. Selected candidates will need to be fingerprinted and will undergo a background check. Additional information can be obtained by contacting Matt Smith, CRMS Athletic Director at (207)236-7806, Ext 2147. EOE
Fall Sports Enrollment
Sports teams practice or participate in games/meets 5-days a week. Practices are usually 90 minutes long. Games are played as part of the Busline League and include home games/meets as well as away games/meets. CRMS provides transportation to all away games. Games will be listed in the game calendar below once the schedules are finalized.
Our cross country team compete as boys and girls teams, but train as one team.
Our golf team practice as one team, and play matches to the level that each player is able to be involved.
We are planning on two field hockey teams, an A and B team. All 8th graders will play on the A team, with students from grade 6 and 7 being placed on either the A or B team based on coahcing decisions in the first week of practice.
Based on projected numbers, we plan to field four soccer teams. All 6th graders play on one coed team. We anticipate having one girls team for all girls in grade 7 and 8. WE anticipate having two boys teams, one for 7th graders and one for 8th graders. There is a chance that this structure could change depending on numbers. For example we may field one 7th grade coed team instead of two boys teams if our girls numbers are higher than we expect.
IMPORTANT: Health forms
We MUST have the following forms BEFORE students can begin any practice sessions. We do not make any exceptions for this.
Required health forms:
1. The Health History form (needed every year - print this and bring this as an "entry ticket" to the first practice)
2. An up-to-date physical - this means a report from your physician of one physical dated no earlier than one year prior to beginning at CRMS
3. The CRMS concussion policy. Please take a moment to read the policy and sign the bottom of the Health History form indicating that you have read and understand the new policy. You can find the concussion policy on the MSAD 28 website.
Athletic Program Webcast/Parent Meeting - **IMPORTANT**
For more information about the goals, rules, expectations and eligibility of our CRMS athletics program, please click below to watch a webcast containing the most important information.
We use this webcast format in lieu of a parent meeting. At the beginning of the season I will hold a brief team meeting with the coach to explain more about that particular team and season. We will let you know what time and day the "meet your coach" meeting will be once the season gets closer. Stay tuned!

Frequently Asked Questions
Click link for FAQ - CRMS Athletics Info
A student can withdraw their name if they decide not to participate in a sport. However, we ask that students only sign up for sports if they have a somewhat firm commitment to playing.
If a student has a conflict with another commitment during the season, we can generally accept a student onto a team. They may have reduced playing time if they cannot attend every practice, but they will be able to participate as much as possible.
Participation by students at private schools/homeschool:
Students from local private schools can usually play on CRMS sports teams if there is space and if they live in Camden or Rockport. However, if sign-up numbers are high, priority is given to CRMS students.
CRMS sports teams are not open to students from Hope, Appleton or Lincolnville unless there are special circumstances, where enrollment is low from the CRMS population AND the sport is not offered at any of the HAL schools.
Students from private schools or HAL must contact the Athletic Director to seek permission to plan on a CRMS sports team before their son/daughter attends practice.
"What is the Sportsline?"
Families new to the Schooners Athletics program may not have heard of the "sportsline" where you can call any time to hear a recorded message listing all that day's practice and game times.
To access the Sportsline, simply call 236-7805 and press option #2.
The sportsline is updated daily - in athletic seasons - by 12:00pm each day.
On days where rain or snow may affect the status of a game, we often have to wait to see what will happen with the weather and contact the opposing Athletic Director to make a decision about the games. Where possible, we try to make the decision before noon. During schooldays, Ms. Pierce or Ms. O'Farrell would be glad to connect you if you request the sportsline when you call the school office at 236-7805.
Contact the Athletic Coordinator
If an issue has arisen that you need assistance with, please contact your team's coach directly, or call Mike Egeland, CRMS Athletic Coordinator, at: 236 7805 Ext 2152 or email at Mike.Egeland@fivetowns.net
The interscholastic sports program is designed primarily for students in grades 7 and 8, with a few sports allowing 6th and even 5th graders as well.

- Girls Soccer (grades 7/8)
- Boys Soccer (7/8)
- Coed Soccer (two teams serving coed students in grades 6-8 (varies each year))
