MYSA Announces Plans to Construct New SoccerPlex Concession



In 2002, Mountain Top Youth Soccer Association acquired their new 50-acre site on Church Road. Over the next 7 years, they held fundraisers, applied for grants, interviewed contractors, and completed construction of four full-size soccer fields, complete with irrigation, along with a 200 car parking area, and a pair of on-site stormwater management basins.

Now MYSA plans to put the finishing touches on the SoccerPlex with a brand new Concession Building. Funded in part by the F.M. Kirby Foundation, the new building will house vehicles and equipment (including goals, nets, balls, corner flags, and all the other paraphernalia needed to run a 700+ member soccer club) along with a picnic pavillion and a take-out food service for families and players attending games and tournaments at the venue.

Architectural plans for the new building were completed last month, and bids for the new construction will be sought between now and early September. Construction is expected to begin this Fall. Anyone interested in bidding on the job can contact Penny Powley (474-5463) or Jon Huber (417-7787).

The MYSA SoccerPlex features some of the finest soccer fields in Luzerne County, and was made possible by grants from DCNR, DEP, Luzerne County, and a host of local sponsors like Burger King, PNC Bank, Ziegler Orthodontics, Lewith & Freeman, Pennstar Bank, Whitewater Challengers, First Federal Bank, the Luzerne Foundation, US Soccer Foundation, Century 21, Welcome Wagon, Mountain Top Rotary, MacDonald Foundation, Pepsico, A&R Building Supply, and countless Mountain Top families and individuals. MYSA extends a hearty thank you to all who have helped move this project forward over the past decade.

Costs and Uses
MYSA is a non-profit, charitable, 501(C)3 organization, dedicated to providing the equipment, facilities and services needed for its youth soccer program here in Mountain Top, PA.

Our goal is to fund our programs and facilities through a combination or registration fees and fund-raisers.

Our fund raiser allows several options for each family:

1.) Purchase 12 raffle tickets from MYSA for $60, sell them for $5 each, keep the proceeds and thereby break even.

2.) Purchase 24 raffle tickets from MYSA for $90, sell them for $5 each, keep the proceeds and thereby earn $30 (in effect reducing the out-of-pocket registration cost from $50 to $20).

3.) Opt out of the fund raiser entirely by paying to MYSA an opt-out fee of $30.

We are sometimes asked what our registration and fund raiser fees are used for. Here are some, but probably not all, of the expenses MYSA incurs each year:

Equipment

Uniforms for each player, including shirt, shorts and socks

Soccer goals

Soccer nets

Paint lining machines

Paint to line fields

Soccer Complex

     Property and liability insurance

Turf maintenance (mowing, seeding, fertilizing)

Road maintenance

Irrigation system maintenance

Electrical service bills

Programs

Referee fees

Registration and insurance fees paid to EPYSA and to Wyoming Valley Rec League
