The Soccer Association of Montgomery (SAM), in conjunction with Spark Matsunaga Elementary School, is proud to announce that registration for the Spark Matsunaga Elementary Winter and Spring Soccer Clinics is now open! SAM has been running soccer programs at the Maryland SoccerPlex for eight year, these include Pre-Kickers and Kickers programs, Recreation and SELECT league, summer camps and indoor clinics.

The Matsunaga Clinics program is a developmental soccer program for children, held at the very school the players attend, each and every WEDNESDAY MORNING from January 14 through February 25 (Winter Session) AND March 4 through April 22 (Spring Session)! These clinics concentrate on skills in passing, dribbling, shooting, teamwork and learning the basic rules of the game. This program emphasizes improvement of gross motor skills and development of fundamental soccer techniques while having FUN. Soccer skills will be introduced through a variety of exercises and games in a group setting to encourage personal interaction and social development.  Each session will progress and new skills will be introduced, but activities will be repeated to improve technique through repetition and to also increase confidence.
