Skills Clinics (2007-2013)


This class designed to aid players and teams in their skills and development. The clinic is an all-encompassing session that focuses on training and developing the complete player. There is a heavy emphasis on individual attacking and defending while incorporating different techniques for each situation. We want players to be strong on the ball, confident with both feet, and be creative on the ball.   

All classes are taught by professionally licensed coaches.

Ages and Program Information: The SAM Skills Clinics are for any recreational, SELECT, classic, and travel level players ages 2013 to 2007 (7 to 14 years of age). The licensed coaches will work with individual players, teams, and coaches to dovetail with topics covered in regular team practices. Though the target is full team participation, individual registrations are more than welcome. 

Please note all clinics are of mixed ages and genders.

The Maryland SoccerPlex places safety for players, coaches, spectators, and staff at the forefront of all we do.  The Maryland SoccerPlex has worked with State and County officials to develop safety protocols and procedures to provide the safest environment possible for visitors to our campus.  We have successfully operated leagues, practices, tournaments, and camps since June 2020 when we were allowed to reopen by the County.  To date we have no known cases of transmission from activities at the SoccerPlex.  We have instituted policies such as health and temperature check daily for visitors, enhanced cleaning protocols, enhanced our scheduling procedures to allow for more time between activities as well as staggered ingress and regress between user groups.  We have added additional staff to assist with cleaning as well as monitoring and enforcement of COVID rules and procedures.  The safety protocols that we have developed at the SoccerPlex have been posted to the County website as an example for other entities to use for their own facilities and programs.
