ABSP Mission

The Archdiocese of Baltimore Soccer Program was created to promote active participation in organized sports and the shared responsibility to keep the competition in proper perspective. Our teams are made-up of parishes or schools within the Archdiocese of Baltimore, allowing them to join a league that brings together other teams with like-minded values with minimal barriers of entry to ensure the sport of soccer can be enjoyed by all.
