We are a youth oriented non-profit organization dedicated to the philosophy of personal development through teamwork, fair play and physical exercise. With over 400 players, Manchester East Soccer League provides intra-league competition for ages 4 to 18, inter-league competition for ages 12 to 18 and a whole lot of fun in the process! We encourage player development, emphasize teamwork and educate volunteers to assist our youth in becoming the best they can be.
2019 marks MESL’s 40th year providing soccer for the youth of Manchester. We believe we offer the best level of fun, instruction and evenly balanced competition for the over 400 children that participate in our league. In an effort to keep “fair and balanced play” we tend not to honor requests for placements of players unless there are extenuating circumstances. Every player regardless of skill level is guaranteed to play at least half of every game his/her team plays.
We are a member of the New Hampshire Soccer Association and as a result our upper level teams, U12 and above, have the opportunity to play in the American Cup tournament at the end of the season. Our main goal though is not driven to win any tournament. We believe that the players should have fun and learn to play the game and to love the game of soccer.
Players should register before July 1st as any late registration will result in an increased fee due to a $25.00 late charge. We welcome all young players who are looking to improve their game or try and play a game they never have.
In closing we would like to THANK all of our generous sponsors who make it possible for us to offer this wonderful game to the children through their generous donations. Check out our sponsor page and support these generous businesses when you can.
We can't wait to see you at EAST this season!
