Registration Process (Also linked on right side)

Registration for Players and Team Officials that are Parents of Players

  • Step 1: This is the link for Registration, please click here. Parents should be going in through this portal, and there will be two options for them to choose from: Recreation or SELECT. They should choose SELECT, if you have chosen them to be a part of your team.
  •  Step 2: There is a special request as well as coaching request box during the registration process. They should complete both of those boxes with the team name and/or coaches name.
  • Step 3: If you as the parent are also a team official, please make sure to volunteer as the coach/Assistant or Manager during this process. Once this step is complete, I will go ahead and activate you and assign you to your roster. Once this is done, I will give you the necessary information to check your roster.
  • Step 4: There are two options for payment: Pay by Credit Card or Pay by Cash/Check. How you choose to allow your parents to pay is up to you. If you would like to pay for your teams in one lump payment, please choose the Pay by Check option.
    • Please note: I cannot assign players to your roster until payment is received, so you will need to keep track of who is registered if using the Pay by Check option.

Registration for Coaches, Assistants and Managers that are NOT Parents of Players

  • Step 1: If you are not a parent of a player, this is the link for registration, please click here. Complete all of the necessary information. This process should be repeated for ANY additional coaches, assistant coaches and managers that do not have children on the team.
  • Step 2: Once this step is complete, I will go ahead and activate you and assign you to your roster.
  • Step 3: I will give you the necessary information to check your roster.

Carding – Players & Coaches

  • Step 1: Players will come in before their first game with a Birth Certificate or other form of Government issued ID
  • Step 2: A picture ID will be taken of the player. The information on the ID will include:
    • Photo
    • Players name
    • SELECT Age Division
    • Expiration date

Official Team Rosters

  • Step 1: Before your first game, you will need to complete the SELECT Roster Template (linked on the right side of the website), and bring it to 18031 Central Park Circle, or e-mail it to jselwood@mdsoccerplex.org, for approval. The roster will identify the following:
    • Team name
    • Coach Information
    • Coaching License Information
    • Player Information
      • Number
      • Last Name
      • First Name
      • Date of Birth
      • Phone Number
      • E-mail
    • Additional Staff Names
    • Signature and stamp of SAM Admin
  • Step 2: Each roster will be signed and stamped by Program Manager Jay Selwood (or, in my absence, Programs Director Jimmy Escobar). A copy will be given to the team, and one will remain with SAM.
  • Step 3: Rosters can be modified through week 3. After week 3, no more modifications to the Roster are allowed. Each modification requires a new stamp and signature.
  • Please Note: The reason that a team is in charge of completing and submitting rosters, instead of just printing the roster from the SAM Website, is because the website rosters have limitations; these rosters allow us to capture all necessary information.  That said, the website roster does provide you with player name, date of birth, phone and e-mail to easily complete the SAM roster.
