MYSA Announces Plans For New SoccerPlex Concession Building
SWEET RIDE-Darin Ambosie takes great pride in his  immaculate ‘88 Corvete with  only 16,000 original miles  on it. Darin’s car was on display at the Wright Township Volunteer Fire Department Car Show last weekend.

 

In  2002,  Mountain  Top  Youth  Soccer  Association  acquired  their  new

 50-acre  youth  soccer  site  on  Church  Road.    Over  the  next  7  years,  they

 held  fund  raisers,  applied  for  grants,  interviewed  contractors,  and finished

 construction  of  four  full-size  soccer  fields,  complete  with

 irrigation,  along  with  a  200-car  parking  area,  and  a  pair  of  on-site  stormwater  management  basins.

 Now  MYSA  plans  to  put  the  finishing  touches  on  the  Complex  with

 a  brand  new  Concession  Building.    Funded  in  part  by  the  F.M.  Kirby

 Foundation,  the  new  building  will

 house  vehicles  and  equipment  ( including  goals,  nets,  balls,  corner  flags,

 and  all  the  other  paraphernalia

 to  run  a  700-member  soccer

 along  with  a  picnic  pavilion  and a  take-out  food  service  for  families  and

 players  attending  games  and  tournaments  at  the  venue.

 Architectural  plans  for  the  new  building  were  completed  last  month,  and  bids  for  the  new  construction  will  be  sought  between  now  and  early

 September.    Construction  is  expected  to  begin  this  Fall.    Anyone  interested

 in  bidding  on  the  job  can  contact  Penny  Powley  (474-5463)  or  Jon

 Huber  (417-7787).  

 The  MYSA  SoccerPlex  features  some  of  the  finest  soccer  fields  in  Luzerne  County,  and  was  made  possible  by  grants  from  DCNR,  DEP,
