THE PORTAGE AREA SOCCER ASSOCIATION
The Portage Youth Soccer Association (PYSA) is a local, volunteer run, soccer association in the Portage area. We currently have an in-house program for children K-2nd grade and a traveling program for grades 3rd-8th. The PYSA organizes teams, offers coaching clinics and soccer camps, raises money for uniforms and equipment and along with Portage Parks and Recreation, maintains and schedules the soccer fields. Our parent organization is Madison Area Youth Soccer Association (MAYSA). We have many volunteer opportunities available. We need YOUR help to keep organized soccer in Portage.
