Hello,

We hope you have remained safe and healthy, as we all continue to deal with COVID-19. The health and safety of our youth soccer community remains of utmost importance. As you know, PHWM Soccer (Perry Hall and White Marsh recreation Councils) has decided to run the spring soccer program. This means implementing the State and Baltimore County COVID-19 guidelines and rules to ensure the safety players, parents, coaches and all the volunteers that run the program as best as possible.

The PHWM Soccer program depends on volunteer coaches for the teams.  We understand this is critical decision and challenge for anyone to volunteer during the continuing health issues of COVID-19.
