Missouri Youth Soccer is pleased to announce the creation of the MYSA Passback Scholarship! This scholarship is for graduating high school seniors who have tremendous character & dedication, participated in MYSA, and have a tremendous love of the game. This year, MYSA will be awarding $1,000 (non-renewable) scholarship(s) to qualifying high school seniors looking to continue their education.
This program is a great addition to the MYSA programming lineup and one that should have an immediate impact on MYSA members. According to MYSA President, Jim McCarthy, "The Scholarship Program will give us the means to recognize and assist those young players who want to continue their education past high school. Once they are finished with their education and begin a career they will remember their youth and help the next generation of youth soccer players in some manner."

In addition to the immediate benefit of helping MYSA alumni with their post-secondary education, there is another long-term goal for the program as well. "Like other sports, the number of players decrease as they get into high school. If this program helps improve the number of players that continue playing that is an added benefit. Soccer as you know provides all players the opportunity to remain physically active" said McCarthy.
All scholarship applications must be received by Friday, April 11th, 2014. Scholarship recipients will be notified by Friday, June 6th, 2014. The scholarships will be for the 2014/2015 academic year.
