The Merrimack Youth Soccer League (MYA) is a recreational, non-profit, volunteer organization that teaches basic soccer skills to children under 4 to 18 years old.
MYA is open to all children within the appropriate age group, regardless of previous soccer experience or skill level. It operates on the principles of sportsmanship, fair play, adherence to the rules of soccer, and healthy competition.
What is...Recreational Soccer?
Recreational soccer is that soccer program that is primarily devoted to the enjoyment and development of soccer players without the emphasis on travel or high-level competition. The purpose of recreational soccer is to provide an opportunity for the participants to have fun, learn the sport and develop life skills including a lifelong love of the game.
Recreational Player? A player who is randomly assigned to a team without regard to his/her abilities and skills.
Recreational Team?Teams formed randomly to play soccer.
Goals of Merrimack Recreational Soccer:
Foster a positive sporting experience for players with a wide range of experience and skills at all levels
Institute basic soccer skills through dynamic practice sessions, guided by volunteer coaches.
You can coach! We NEED coaching volunteers to help with the program. Worried you don't have enough "soccer know-how" to help as a volunteer coach? Don't be! We will provide you the tools to maximize the benefit to our players.
