Pre-Kicks (Ages 3-4)

alt="Class of Pre-Kick children"

Welcome to SAM and the Pre-Kicks program.  This program emphasizes the improvement of gross motor skills and the development of fundamental soccer techniques while having FUN.  Classes are loosely structured with lots of positive reinforcement and activities that change quickly to hold the interest of 3-4-year-old children.

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. 

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.
