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!

Grant/Scholarship Opportunity

Each team will be limited to four full scholarship equivalent players (e.g., a team could receive eight half scholarship for eight players or some combination of full and half scholarships). A single player may not receive more than three scholarships in a calendar year.

How Do I Register Online?

Accessing Your Account

  1. When you click on the online registration link it will provide you with TWO options:
    1. Create an account (Please follow steps 2 & 3)
    2. Login with an existing account (Please go to step 4)
  2. IF you are a NEW user and have never registered for any program with the Maryland SoccerPlex, Discovery Sports Center or SAM Soccer please choose this option. 
  3. You have the option to create an account via Facebook or manually. Once you have created an account follow the on-screen instructions for registration.
  4. If you have registered before for a Maryland SoccerPlex, Discovery Sports Center or SAM Soccer program please click Forgot Password in the Login with Existing Account section.
  5. Then follow the onscreen instructions to set up a new password for your household. All the household data from the old system has been migrated, but we could NOT transfer over your passwords, so thus why you have to create a new password.
  6. Once you have set up your new password login as normal and follow the on-screen instructions for registration.

PLEASE NOTE: The SAM offices WILL NOT be able to provide you with your password over the phone anymore. If you forget your password in the future simply follow steps 4-6 above.
