The Massachusetts Youth Soccer Association (Mass Youth Soccer) is a non-profit corporation dedicated to the task of promoting and enhancing the culture of soccer in Massachusetts. Established in 1977, we have become the largest state youth soccer association in the United States with more than 165,000 registered players, thanks to the dedicated efforts of the Board of Directors, an energetic support staff and over 35,000 adult volunteers.

Our efforts and energies are directed to the following objectives:

We strive to develop players at all levels of play – recreational, travel and premier – by building and improving their skills, confidence, fitness, initiative and a sense of teamwork. 

We are committed to developing coaches to the highest level through a quality instructional program. 

We promote and encourage high standards of sportsmanship and fair play. 

We look to aggressively expand soccer opportunities to areas that are traditionally underserved, principally those who live in the inner-city and to any boy or girl with a mental or physical disability.
