In the Spring of 2012 SAM launched SAM SELECT, answering requests from SAM Recreation teams for a more competitive league. SAM SELECT is committed to providing a competitive and positive high-level soccer experience, on the world-class facilities at the Maryland SoccerPlex. SELECT teams are considered travel teams and are required to be carded by the Maryland SoccerPlex. All coaches are required to obtain an E-license to coach in the league, and must also become certified through the Positive Coaching Alliance.
