In-House Uniform Pants Drop Off

In-House Rookie and Tee Ball team baseball pants can be dropped in a bin on the porch at 4627 Cedar Avenue for most of the summer. Re-using slightly worn pants helps keep in-house registration costs down. Thanks!

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.
