On September 7 2017, Maryland United FC's Executive Director Peter Kaminskas passed away on a soccer field - enjoying the activity he loved the most. Peter proudly served Freestate Soccer Alliance and Maryland United FC for the past 12 years. During this time he was a coach, mentor, administrator, and jack of all trades willing to do anything to make sure that each and every kid who wanted to play would get that opportunity. Prior to his work with MD United, he coached for over 30 years between the Bowie/Annapolis area and St. Louis, Missouri. His family asked MD United FC to set up a Scholarship Fund to allow kids to continue to enjoy playing his favorite pastime. 100% of the proceeds from the fund will go directly to families to defray the cost of a valuable youth soccer experience. As Peter always said, the game is the best teacher of life skills - both on and off the field.
Your contribution to the Peter Kaminskas Memorial Scholarship Fund will be greatly appreciated and will help make a difference on kids who may find difficult to fulfill their dreams in the soccer field.
