Our mission:

Adopted from US Youth Soccer’s mission statement

Methuen Youth Soccer Association (MYSA) is a non-profit and educational organization whose mission is to foster the physical, mental and emotional growth and development of the youth of Methuen and its surrounding cities/towns through the sport of soccer at all levels of age and competition.

Who we are:

Methuen Youth Soccer Association was established in 1986. Since our humble beginnings, we have grown to become an organization that includes approximately 1,000 children annually between our In-Town and Travel programs. Our In-Town recreational, instructional leagues offer a fun, safe environment for all children ages 2-13. We include Methuen and players from surrounding cities/towns. Our Travel leagues consist of U10 – U19 for those interested in a higher level of competition, with HS ages playing in the spring as they play with their schools in the fall.
MYSA follows the rules and guidelines from US Youth Soccer, Massachusetts Youth Soccer Association (MAYS), and Essex County Youth Soccer (ECY) and our own Bylaws – see MYSA Bylaws page.

MYSA is 100% volunteer run. Our seven-member Executive Board of Directors, is elected by its members every year for a two-year term on a rotating schedule. The Executive Board, or Eboard consists of the President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Development Director, In Town Director, and Travel Director. The Eboard is also part of the broader General Board whose positions are appointed and voted in by the Eboard every year at the AGM – see the Contact Us page for a list of all positions.

Our Vision:

MYSA takes pride in it’s motto “Community Through Soccer”. We continue to strengthen our community involvement through collaboration with other youth sports organizations, the Schools administration, the City departments including Parks and Recreation, DPW, Police, Fire, Challenger Sports, the New England Revolution, and any other appropriate groups to offer the best programs we can to our members. We offer graduating seniors college scholarships and award hardships to families struggling financially.
