MYA provides each player with a pair of socks along with their uniform shirt. All players must wear shin guards with socks worn over the outside completely covering the guard. Soccer cleats are optional but suggested for U4 and U6 players and are encouraged for U8 players and older. No Jewelry (including earrings) is allowed.
Please note we will not be able to start our season until ALL teams have been filled with 2 coaches. We also cannot release rosters or any practice/game schedules if we do not have coaches that have gone through a background check. We need coaches to be cleared before we can start the season. If you are interested in helping fill this volunteer opportunity so we can accommodate the 500+ expected players this season, please let me know.
Want to volunteer to help MYA Soccer but maybe feel like you don't have the knowledge/experience? Here is your chance!!! The continued success of the MYA Soccer Program relies heavily on parent volunteers like you to provide a fun and positive soccer experience for our children, while encouraging teamwork and great sportsmanship.
COACHES - We have many coaching opportunities for all age groups this season and are looking for two coaches per team - no experience necessary! See below (Fall Season League Information) for the number of teams we will have in the fall which will require a coach and an assistant coach for each team. Without a coach and an assistant coach, we will not be able to form teams, and unfortunately, may have to turn players away if complete teams cannot be formed.
FIELD LINING/PREP - We are in need of volunteers to serve on a field lining crew. The fields are mowed once a week, but the lines will need to be redone once or twice a week or they disappear quickly. The season lasts 9 weeks (including the initial field lining and prep before season games begin) and the lining times are flexible so there's plenty of opportunities to volunteer. It is just tracing - going over lines that are already there. So an hour or an hour and a half of your time is all we need. We will first show you what needs to be done and how to do it, should only take about 10 minutes, than just let us know what weeks you are available. We would be extremely grateful for any help you can give.
FAMILY MAX DISCOUNT
Families registering more than two (2) children in the same household for any of the MYA Soccer Fall programs (Rec & Travel) will be issued a family max voucher good for up to $65 per player. Parents/Guardians must first email the registrar (firstname.lastname@example.org) prior to registering their 3rd and subsequent children to receive the family max voucher. Family max voucher codes are only good for one redemption, but will be reissued for future soccer seasons as long as the parent/guardian contacts the Registrar for their voucher code.

The Merrimack Youth Association was created for the recreational benefit of the youth of the community. It was founded in 1968 and incorporated as a non-profit corporation with the Federal Government in 1971. The reaches of the Association cover kids from Kindergarten through senior year of High School.
This all volunteer organization devotes over 125,000 hours of service to the community annually. It actually contracts with the Town of Merrimack each year to provide organized recreational sports for the youth of the town. The MYA currently provides 7 different sporting activities for the community: Baseball, Basketball, Football/Cheer, Lacrosse, Soccer, Softball, and Wrestling. Each program has its own Board of Directors and is responsible for their own budget. All programs report monthly to the Executive Board who oversees all MYA Programming, and corresponds with the Town accordingly.
The MYA provides an opportunity for all children of Merrimack to participate in sports based on their desire and not their ability. This enables the children the chance to meet and socialize with their peers throughout the Town as well as provide a social network for the parents. Over the years the MYA has served more than 30,000 youths and during this time the Association has received praise from a variety of communities throughout New England and beyond for its strong administrative ties and positive influence throughout the community.
The MYA demonstrates that the best interest of the Town of Merrimack can be served along with the best interest of all its citizens. With continued support from the Town of Merrimack, The Merrimack School District, as well as its Corporate Neighbors and the MYA volunteer base, the continued good work of the organization will prevail.
