CRMS Athletics Schedule
Spring Sport Registration is Open!
Baseball, Softball are available to 7th and 8th Graders, Track is available to 6th, 7th and 8th Graders.
Please take note of our required health forms that must be completed prior to beginning any practices with the CRMS team.
Track is typically open to students from Hope, Appleton and Lincolnville and we compete as a 5-Town team. We expect this to be the case again this year.
Typically we run two baseball teams: one for 7th graders and one for 8th graders. The 7th grade team play in the South Division and the 8th grade team play in the North Division. The final decision for this team structure is based on enrollment and, if we have a large group of 7th or 8th graders and a small group in the opposite grade, we may mix 7th and 8th graders together and make two evenly matched teams with solid pitching and catching on each team.
In recent years we have run one softball team for 7th and 8th graders combined. This has been due to smaller enrollment in softball. If we have sufficient enrollment in 7th and 8th grade we will run two teams again this year. We would use the same approach to dividing those teams as decribed above for baseball.
Private school students: please see information about enrollment below.

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 Director
If an issue has arisen that you need assistance with, please contact your team's coach directly, or call Matt Smith, CRMS Athletic Director, at: 236 7805 Ext 2147 or email at Matt.Smith@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))
