Volunteers and Parent/Coach Resources

Welcome Volunteers, 

Every year, the success of our program is overwhelming dependent on having volunteers available in a number of capacities, but mainly to run practices and games.  More volunteers means smaller teams and more time on the field for each player. 
 
 
U.S. Soccer and PA West continue to lead the way in Youth Sports Safety and Training.  This season's training includes a new volunteer online training video/class designed to provide child safety guidance to all volunteers in addition to standard clearances.  

MAYSA will waive the cost of registration for the first child of anyone who volunteers and completes all required activities outlined in the attached .pdf file.

We are counting on those who helped last year to again this year but the organization will need new volunteers in order to provide the best possible soccer experience to the youth in our area. 

Please take a few minutes to review the Volunteer 5 Steps.pdf  or jump right in and begin your  5 Step process using the links provide here:

Summer Pickup (K-2):  Pickup will begin June 27 and run each Thursday through July 25 (off July 4th) in the evenings from 6:00-7:05 PM.

5th Annual Mercer Soccer Golf Scramble

posted Mar 25, 2018, 4:49 PM by Site Administrator   [ updated Mar 25, 2018, 4:49 PM ]

Dear Friends of Mercer Soccer,

The MAYSA and Mercer Mustang Soccer Boosters together, are organizing the 5th Annual Mercer Area Soccer Golf Scramble to be held on May 12th at Spring Valley Golf Course in Mercer.  This event is a fund raiser for Mercer Area Soccer (both our youth program and the school's programs).  

The fund raiser helps provide new uniforms for the high school teams and will also assist in offsetting the costs of MAYSA groundskeeping and equipment needs.

We invite you to enter your own team or we can put find a team for you.  If you can help us by connecting with companies and individuals you know to become 'hole sponsors' for this event, that would be great!  Your participation and involvement allows us to continue to keep Mercer soccer programs strong.

We have attached the flyer for this year's event which can be used to register a team or sponsor a hole.  Please consider printing it off to giving to potential sponsors and golfers.

Thank you.
