11U Wins GVAA Memorial Day Tournament

Our Philadelphia Athletics 11U Travel Team won the GVAA Memorial Tourney with a 7-6 come from behind victory in extra innings against a superb Mt. Laurel team in the championship game.  The team went undefeated in the Warrior A Level bracket. Congratulations to the players and coaches for securing PAYSA's first ever travel team tournament championship!

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.
