PAYSA Receives Phillies Charities Donation

PAYSA was one of many charitable organizations chosen to receive a $10,000 donation from Phillies Charities, Inc. this year.  PAYSA is very grateful to the Phillies organization for being selected as a donation recipient. The $10,000 will be used by PAYSA to provide financial assistance for families in need, to make continued improvements to the 48th & Woodland playground we call home, and to help offset the costs of needed baseball equipment as we enter our third year.

Mike Matheny Manifesto

While the philosophy of the Mike Matheny Manifesto pertains primarily to the travel teams at PAYSA, the message is applicable across all youth sports. 

We ask that you take the time to read through the Matheny Manifesto and help make it a fundamental part of the Philadelphia Athletics Youth Sports Association.

We Need Your Help

PAYSA is an all-volunteer non-profit organization so we are looking for people willing to share their time & talents in any manner from coaching, umpiring, field maintenance, fundraising & general support efforts.  All volunteers will be required to pass a background check and possibly be fingerprinted in accordance with new Pennsylvania State Law.  Please review the volunteer requirements on our Volunteer Info page under the Information tab.
