Kickers (Ages 5-7)

       alt="A boy chasing another boy"  

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. 

This developmental soccer program for children ages 5-7 years old, follows the Pre-Kicks program by advancing your child’s soccer skills. Kickers concentrates on skills in passing, dribbling, shooting, teamwork, and learning the basic rules of the game. Each session concludes with actual games where players can practice their skills.

Kickers Beginner - Generally for first-time players. SAM staff coaches instruct the class emphasizing fundamentals and basic skills of the game.
 
Kickers Plus - For new players who are more athletically advanced and those players who have participated in one or more of SAM programs in the past. This class will be taught by SAM staff coaches and is tailored to the ability level of the players.
