Welcome to Mandarin Sports Association
Mandarin Sports Association (MSA) of Jacksonville is the original organization for youth baseball, youth girls softball and youth flag football for Mandarin and its surrounding areas. We offer two youth baseball and youth girls softball seasons each year – Spring and Fall. We offer youth flag football in the Winter. Our goals are to promote the development of athletic skills through the teaching of fundamentals while emphasizing the importance of sportsmanship in all activities. While we actively support the development of individual skills and goals, we stress the overarching importance of teamwork during play.
All MSA activities take place, first and foremost, for the benefit of children. Our programs and policies are geared toward developing athletic skills and sportsmanship in children. Our coaches are selected based on their ability to impart these skills and attitudes to the children and are expected to lead by example. Finally, we anticipate the active involvement of parents in MSA activities on behalf of their children. Parental attitudes and behaviors greatly influence those of their children, and their involvement can provide the ultimate positive example.
MSA hopes that this serves as a clear statement of the principles we feel are embodied in MSA activities. We also trust that all adults involved with MSA will conduct themselves in accordance with these principles, for the benefit of our children.
