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.
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.
