In the Spring of 2012 SAM launched SAM SELECT, answering requests from SAM Recreation teams for a more competitive league. SAM SELECT is committed to providing a competitive and positive high-level soccer experience, on the world-class facilities at the Maryland SoccerPlex. SELECT teams are considered travel teams and are required to be carded by the Maryland SoccerPlex. All coaches are required to become certified through the Positive Coaching Alliance and pass a background check.
