Marple Newtown Soccer Association (MNSA) is a youth Intramural and Travel Soccer Program, with a goal of developing skilled boy’s and girl’s soccer players. We are a not for profit organization providing soccer programs for ages 5 - 19. We are committed to providing a fun-filled experience in a soccer environment while developing skills so children can play at higher levels of soccer if they desire. MNSA is a member of the United States Youth Soccer Association (USYSA) and Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer Association (EPYSA) and a proud sponsor of the Philadelphia Union.
The Board of Directors meet the third Tuesday of each month and all positions are volunteer. Elections are held in March and terms are for 2 years. You do not need to have a soccer background to be a member. We represent the children that live both in Marple and Newtown Townships and welcome new member involvement.
A competitive soccer program with both boys and girls teams playing in fall leagues. Travel provides the opportunity for advanced instruction, playing with your peers, and the ability to play other local clubs (typical drive time is within 30 minutes) in the area.
Teams are placed in divisions that are matched to the skill level of the club and travel offers teams that range in age from 8 to 19. The teams are selected through an open tryout in April and May and MNSA encourages everyone to try out to so that we can assess and match each player’s skill level to the appropriate League Divisions.
Practice is twice a week and typically play one game a weekend with travel teams having the added advantage of optional extended summer practice and local tournaments.
The Intramural Soccer Program is a community soccer program focused on team building and fun for boys and girls 7 thru 17 years of age. Teams play in separate divisions for boys and girls and are split up according to appropriate age ranges.
