Mission Provide the youth of Mansfield, MA an opportunity to play soccer and be part of a team in an enjoyable, fair and safe environment. MYS strives to provide opportunities for children to develop basic and advanced soccer skills, to learn the value of team work, learn to have fun while being active and to build personal confidences. MYS creates an atmosphere where the children’s enthusiasm & excitement for soccer serve as a catalyst for its future growth. The MYS program is run successfully by volunteers who unconditionally commit their time and talents; there are no paid positions on the board of directors. History The MYS program was founded in the 1983 and started playing on fields around the schools and Memorial Park. The years since, MYS have expanded considerably by offering the sport of soccer to the growing youth population in Mansfield. This led to a vision to build a recreation complex at Plymouth Street. The development of the complex was achieved by a partnership with the town of Mansfield and MYS. Towards the partnership MYS donated a matching gift of $94,000 to develop the back and front fields. That major field development project was completed in late FOG was the third phase completed in Fall of 2010.

MYS more than just soccer Following the research of the Active Living Research Organization, an organization which strives to identify environmental factors and policies that influence physical activity, especially among children. Their studies report that: Regular physical activity enhances academic performance, Participation in r egular physical activity; The habits they establish in childhood carry over to adulthood Regular physical activity has a positive impact on behavior and healthy lifestyles in youth Involvement in positive activities encourages healthy development and help children make positive choices and avoid high-risk behaviors.
