Parent Meeting! – April 11th

Hello MYSA Families!

To align with US Soccer, better develop our players, and efficiently utilize our resources, we are launching Methuen Youth Soccer 2.0!

There are some big changes coming to MYSA starting this fall and we don’t want you missing out on the fun! We will be sending out several emails over the next few months and ask that you Please Read Them.

There will be an informational session for everyone on Thursday, April 11 – 7p at the Methuen Timony auditorium. This will be the time to ask questions and learn about how these changes will impact all aspects of the program. You might also win a prize in the free raffle!

Looking forward to a great reboot!
