Recreation Program Information

The McLean Youth Soccer (MYS) Recreation program, under the guidance of Recreation Director Haytham Mansur, focuses on individual player development and the enjoyment of the game of soccer - not on teams or winning games. We believe it is important for our players, parents and coaches to embrace this philosophy as it is an important foundation of MYS.

The Recreation program includes the following programs:

  • U04: Game-based program for our youngest players
  • U05: Academy style, non-team-based introduction to soccer for our pre-K players.
  • U06-U07: Academy style, non-results, team-based developmental program.
  • U08-U11: Team-oriented program promoting fun and player development.
  • U12-U19: Team-based program that competes against area club teams in the local area.

MYS also provides a TOPSoccer program for young athletes who have a mental or physical disability.

MYS Recreation program does not allow carded travel players to participate at the recreation level.
