Merrimack Soccer Club is part of the Merrimack Youth Association (MYA) soccer program, which is divided into a recreational league and Merrimack SC. As an all-volunteer organization, the Merrimack SC mission is to provide the children of Merrimack, NH the opportunity to gain a high-level of individual and team soccer experience through New Hampshire Soccer Association (NHSA) certified coaches and professional trainers, in a safe and supportive environment.
The club’s goal is to promote the game of soccer in a fun and positive atmosphere where players are provided opportunities to reach their full potential. We are guided by the core principles of the US Youth Soccer Association (USYSA) to build a strong foundation of young players who will learn the game in a natural, age-appropriate timeline. The Club competes in the New Hampshire Soccer League (NHSL) and most games are against similarly competitive teams in Southern and Central NH. As players mature, they will develop the confidence and skills necessary to compete at the highest levels within the organization along with the potential to reach High School and Collegiate player status.
