How do we join?

Speak to one of our representatives via phone or e-mail and we will love to have you and the youth of the Middle-East part of the Middle East Youth Soccer Organisation. Can we be coached with our friends and be on the same team? Of course! As long as you are within the correct age for your child’s coaching session and that you understand that individuals are enrolled to ensure the kids have fun and that our commitment to the “Balanced Teams” philosophy is maintained.
