The Spring 2016 Combine will be 2 days this year - June 7 and 8, 2016.

The SAM SELECT Combine is for players that are looking to join a SELECT team. This season we will be having tryouts on June 7 and June 8, 2016 at the Maryland SoccerPlex, time and exact field locations are below. Players may choose to come one or both of the days.

NEW for Fall 2016, SAM SELECT will be for U9-U17 players boys and girls. PLEASE NOTE SAM SELECT will be following the new US Soccer Foundation standards, so players will be organized into teams based on their birth year, NOT school year. For example all U10 players will be born in 2007. Click here to find your child's age group.

SAM SELECT will also be following ALL new US Soccer Foundation standards - click here to read more.

This tryout will be held outdoors, so we ask all players, parents and coaches to dress accordingly.
