Every Manchester Youth will play regardless of ability to pay.

Our Mission: Manchester Youth Sports provides financial assistance to help youth from low-income families, youth that are physically or developmentally challenged, and kids that are “at-risk” to gain access to Manchester, NH area sports leagues.  We provide academic scholarships to young athletes ages 4-17 to play sports who inspire others and exemplify the values, character, courage, contribution, and commitment to helping our community.

Sports are fundamentally the most important thing we can offer the Manchester Youth.  We are in the business of offering every Youth who wants to play sports the chance to play.  Youth Recreational Sports is our business, every kid plays.

Sports carried me away from being in a gang or being associated with drugs. Sports was my way out.   – Lebron James
