Lower Macungie Youth Association (LMYA) is a volunteer run 501(c)(3) non-profit, charitable organization that serves the needs of thousands of families in the communities of Lower Macungie Township. LMYA offers 9 sports for youth athletes between the grades of Kindergarten through 12th grade. Recreation level play is available in all sports and some sports do offer Travel and Tournament teams.

LMYA aspires to be an outstanding educational-athletic organization that provides a high-quality experience for every athlete. A high-quality experience is one in which every athlete:

  • Has fun playing the game
  • Learns sportsmanship, fair play, dedication, and the principles of teamwork
  • Feels valued regardless their level of performance
  • Learns skills and strategies of the game and improves as a player

With the exception of our part-time executive director, LMYA is volunteer run organization, and is dependent on its families. LMYA is always looking for new volunteers to continue and extend the success that we have had for so many years. Families who have volunteered their time and effort have kept our programs running and our youth athletes on the courts and in the fields. Please consider volunteering on some level.

LMYA believes that any child who wants to play should have the opportunity to play regardless of socio-economic status. LMYA does provide financial aid for qualifying individuals.
