Welcome Message from our President

We like to welcome you to the official site of the Maryland State Soccer Association.  This site not only serves our members but also becomes a source of information for all fans of soccer in Maryland and around the world.  We encourage you to visit often and check this site for the latest in results, standings, schedule changes and events in and around Maryland. 

I am often asked Why affiliate with Maryland soccer?  Our members are part of the US Soccer family with players, teams and leagues registered through US Adult Soccer, the adult amateur component of the US Soccer Federation.  We provide cup competitions for our teams, some of which qualify to play at the regional and national stage.  Teams also have the opportunity to enter tournaments held by US Adult Soccer and its member organizations.  The league matches played through our members are officiated by referees trained and certified through US Soccer.  Each member falls under the US Adult Soccer Risk Management Insurance Program, which provides protection on behalf of players, teams and leagues, including an accident injury policy to help defray costs for medical and dental expenses incurred during sanctioned amateur soccer games and liability insurance for teams and leagues.  Our members get a lot more than just playing the game.

We also encourage you to check our pages often to keep up on events, competitions and leagues throughout the state.  We will try our best to get out the latest information on soccer in Maryland.  Thanks for visiting us and please return.  If you need more information, are interested in joining or just want to chat about soccer, send us a message.  No matter what your age, don’t stop playing because here in Maryland we are Still Getting Our Kicks.
