About Us

"To put forth benefits for the common good is divine"  -B. Franklin

Welcome to the home of the Mercer Area Soccer Association (MAYSA).  MAYSA is a member of the PA West Soccer Association, the United States Soccer Federation (USSF) and United States Youth Soccer Association (USYSA).  MAYSA strives to offer and excellent opportunity for personal and athletic growth.  As we enter our 27th year, we continue to ask everyone involved with MAYSA to represent themselves, our MAYSA team and our organization with dignity and honor, while working to achieve widespread respect and recognition.  

Our continued commitment to excellence allows us to build the foundation of self-confidence, camaraderie, teamwork and goal-orientation that both MAYSA and our youth will take with them and translate into successes both on and off the field.

MAYSA is a volunteer organization that strives to offer an excellent opportunity for personal and athletic growth at an affordable cost. Our mission is to provide a fun and exciting environment that fosters the development of the complete soccer player. 

MAYSA offers year round soccer programing in the form of In-House instructional/recreational Soccer, Travel Soccer in which teams represent their community and play surrounding U.S. Youth Soccer, PA West Lake District teams, informal pickup games and a referee development program (i.e., Youth Referee Program). 

MAYSA is a 501c3 nonprofit and operated solely by volunteers under the direction of a Board of Directors.  MAYSA is funded by player registration fees, concession sales and generous local business donations.  To contact the current Board of Directors, click on the Contact Us tab.

Several years ago while MAYSA was in search of space we could call home.  In what can only be called an extraordinarily generous act,  Cool Springs Fitness (CSF), offered to guarantee the long-term availability of soccer to the Mercer Area Youth by building three soccer fields and partnering with MAYSA. 

As part of our partnership with CSF, MAYSA runs the soccer program separately as a 501(c)3 and maintains the fields.  Our partnership with CSF has insured the children of Mercer and the surrounding area will have access to recreational and competitive soccer for years to come.  For directions to our home fields located at Cool Springs Fitness, click here.
