  • Uniforms are in partnership with High Five, and will represent one of 18 countries.

Forming Teams
No Coach/Team Request: When child is registered for the SAM Rec program their name, age and geographic location will be placed in our database and the SAM Program Manager will begin placing children on teams. Our goal at SAM is to place a child on a team as close to his or her house as possible. While all games are played at the Maryland SoccerPlex, all practices occur at local parks. SAM tries to put a child on a team that is close to his or her local elementary school or park as practices occur 1-2 times a week.

Special or Coach Request: If a family would like to be on the same team as another child please put the child’s name or names in “Special Request” box during the registration process. If a family would like to be on a team with a specific coach please place that coach’s name in the “Coach Request” box.

Returning Player: If a returning player would like to be on the same team as last season, that player must register by the returning player deadline, which is normally 2 months before the beginning of the season (listed above). Any child registered after that date is not guaranteed to be on the same team as the previous season.
