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.

Merrimack Soccer Club (Competitive) Program
The Merrimack Soccer Club was created to provide the children of Merrimack, NH the opportunity to play competitive travel soccer against players of similar commitment and desire from other towns, communities and regional teams within the New Hampshire Soccer League (NHSL).
Our club’s goal is to promote the game of soccer in a fun and positive atmosphere where our players can become the most technically skilled soccer players in the area. This will be accomplished by maintaining a soccer environment that teaches age appropriate soccer skills and sportsmanship by certified coaches, who will focus on total player development. Teams will typically stay together as the kids continue to develop on and off the field. This creates an environment where the kids become comfortable with each other, resulting in improved game play. The ultimate goal is for the kids to have a great time, stay active, and build character. MSC teams typically practice twice a week for an hour to an hour and a half and play one to two games on the weekend. Players can also expect to play in at least one tournament, if not more throughout the season. Tryouts for travel teams are held twice a year, once for the spring season and once for the fall season.
