Brookline Youth Soccer Association
(1982 - ....)

BYSA Soccer - Opening Day 1999.

Soccer is the fastest growing sport in America, and the same can be said right here in Brookline, where soccer fever is highly contagious. The Brookline Youth Soccer Association has been a fall tradition since 1982. The program, which runs from August through November, attracts hundreds of area youth ages 5 through 18. A traveling spring program was instituted in 2001 with the PA West Soccer League and over the years it has been very successful.

For seventeen years, from 1982 through 1998, the Brookline soccer program played their games at the Community Center fields in Brookline Park. Then, in 1999, the games were moved to Moore Park. On any given fall weekend, Moore Park is alive with activity. The games run from morning until evening. The action is fast and furious. It's a great way to get the kids interested in soccer.

The officers and coaches involved with the program have always promoted the Brookline Soccer league as a family-oriented activity. For an organization that is so large, they manage to pull it off, year-in and year-out.

For three decades, the Brookline Youth Soccer Association has provided a quality recreational alternative for the children of Brookline. The program is well-managed, safe, and competitive. It is one of our community's best assets.
