Soccer in the Park is finalizing our schedule for the Spring and could still use volunteers to help with the program. We are currently at 3 sites and will be starting at our 4th site on March 17th. Details on the locations, days, and times are below so let me know if you are interested, have high school or college age players that would like to help, or could forward to anyone you know who may be interested in teaching soccer to children who otherwise would not have the opportunity to play the beautiful game.

Soccer in the Park is a free program that uses soccer as a tool to promote healthy lifestyles and personal development for the children of Saint Mary’s County, Maryland. Particularly for children who don’t have the resources to participate in organized sports or other activities.
We realize that parking at Hollywood Soccer Complex is sometimes challenging. With that said, please follow these simple rules:
1. If you play of Field 1, 2 or 3 - please park in the lot in front of the fields.
2. If you play on Fields 4, 5 or 6 - please park in the Hollywood Elementary School parking lot.
3. DO NOT PARK ALONG THE STREET on Joy Chapel Road. There are No Parking signs posted and you risk being ticketed.
Please take a look at the parking map for the Hollywood Soccer Complex.
SMYS follows SMCR&P guidelines on smoking at athletic fields
SMYS supports St. Mary’s County Department of Recreation and Parks guidance that prohibits smoking at any game or practice area. If you must light up, please do it away from the fields. We appreciate your support.
For a few years now, SMS has had a Facebook page (see it here), but now we have created a new presence where we will post all the latest goings on in the world of St. Mary's Soccer. We will keep the old page for now to allow our membership to communicate, and answer questions as we can - but the new page will be for us to post important info you need to know (last minute cancellations, tryouts, or special events).

Because of a new State law which went into effect on July 1, 2011, Recreation & Parks is instituting an awareness campaign to provide information about concussions for youth sport administrators, coaches, parents, and athletes.
