The state tournament will be held Sunday OCTOBER  29th at Crown Sports Center in Fruitland, MD on the Lower Shore.

Following last season’s huge success with two teams, if there is enough athlete interest and coach support, we hope to be fielding a second adult 7V7  team. Team formation will depend on coaching staff availability and number of interested players. If enough players are available to form two teams, coaches will make assessments of each athlete’s appropriate placement following the first two “try-out” sessions. Athletes and all volunteer coaches or Unified Partners MUST sign up early so that we know who plans to play.

FOR ATHLETES AGES 5 THROUGH HIGH SCHOOL (AGE 21)  TOPSoccer program:

For athletes ages 6 through High School (age 21) SOMO has developed a partnership with MSI Soccer called TOPSoccer. TOPSoccer is a US Youth Coaches National program designed to proved soccer skills training and game play to people with disabilities. SOMO offer 3 TOPSoccer Leagues:  Elementary League, Middle School League and High School League. We recruit area MSI youth soccer players as our TOPSoccer Buddies and provide a fun and playful opportunity to learn the game of soccer and prepare for advancement to the Senior Soccer Team Program and competition at the State level. Details on the YAP (Young Athlete Program) Soccer League will be available on this site soon
