SELECT League

 

NEW LEAGUE HEALTH AND SAFETY PROTOCOLS 

 

Updated league rules at this time as we follow Maryland State and Montgomery County rules. This is subject to change. 

  1. No team can have more than twelve (12) people present at the field and no more than two (2) of them can be adults. So, if a team wishes to play eleven (11) players, only one coach can be present. If a team wishes to have two (2) coaches present, only ten (10) players can play at that game. 
  2. Parents of players must complete an electronic Health Check form. This form confirms that their child has been asymptomatic and has not had a fever within 12 hours before every game day. If a form is not completed for a player, that player may not participate on that day.
  3. Social distancing between players while on the sideline. Benches will not be provided by the SoccerPlex and teams may not use their own benches.
  4. Masks are recommeded to be worn at all times, but MUST be worn by players walking to and from game fields, on the sideline while a sub.
  5. Masks must be worn by coaches at all times.
  6. Masks must be worn by parents and all others at all times while on the SoccerPlex campus and not in cars.
  7. Sanitation stations have been added to each field grouping and at comfort stations

SAM SELECT is committed to providing a competitive and positive high-level soccer experience on the world-class fields at the Maryland SoccerPlex!

Fair Play Please!! – SAM’s Sportsmanship Program

Fair Play Please is the initiative from SAM Soccer to help promote sportsmanship from coaches, players, and parents to all. Sometimes we can get a bit involved in a game and Fair Play Please is to remind that it is only a game and winning is not everything. The team that displays exceptional sportsmanship throughout the entire season will win our Fair Play Please t-shirt, and be recognized on the website, and social media. Throughout the season we ask that you remind teammates, coaches, and other parents to promote Fair Play Please!
