Who's SAM? We at SAM are often told that people think SAM is a name, but really SAM is an acronym for the Soccer Association of Montgomery, a soccer organization for the youth in the upcounty. SAM is also not just a club/league, but it is actually so much more than that. SAM is a community of players, coaches, volunteers and parents all working towards providing kids with the safest and most enjoyable soccer experience possible.
SAM Soccer began in 2005 when a partnership between the Maryland SoccerPlex and Seneca Valley Sports was formed, the first season of play was in the Fall of 2006. Since that first season the program has more than quadrupled in size, from 2,853 to an anticipated 8,500+ in 2016.
This Fall SAM Soccer will be celebrating its 10th season of play. And as such we wanted to take a look at some reasons why SAM has become this great, flourishing community.
