MYSA Recreational Soccer Program
The MYSA Recreational Soccer program is our most popular program, providing a local soccer experience for players aged 4 to 18. This instructional soccer program provides a soccer development environment for players of all skill levels. Younger ages (‘U’nder 5 or U5 through U8) play small sided matches of 3v3 or 4v4 to maximize the number of ball touches for players. ‘U’nder 8 or U8 through U10 play 6v6 with U12 playing 8v8. Once players reach the U14 level, they play full sided 11v11 matches on full size fields.
Teams play 8-10 matches per season (Fall Aug-Nov and Spring Feb-May) against other MYSA recreational teams at the Mebane Soccer Complex the Mebane Baseball Fields. U8 and older teams participate in end of season festival or tournament play, depending on age group. Our program is affiliated with the NC Youth Soccer Association (NCYSA) and United States Youth Soccer Association (USYSA) and match rules adhere to small-sided match rules from the USYSA.
Players are assigned to teams with the goal of creating the most balanced and competitive divisions possible. Uniforms consist of jerseys purchased by parents for $25 which are theirs to keep and reuse each season and can be passed on to other siblings/children as desired. Teams typically practice once per week Monday through Thursday with games either Friday night or Saturday morning (games can occasionally be Saturday or Sunday afternoon due to weather reschedules, school makeup days, etc.). Teams are coached by volunteer coaches, many of whom are certified by the NCYSA. All team adults (coaches, assistant coaches, and managers) pass NCYSA administered background checks.
The cost for each season is $45 (late registrations incur an additional $10 charge). Financial Aid is available to those that qualify.
