The Philadelphia Athletics Youth Sports Association's home fields.

The Philadelphia Athletics Youth Sports Association (PAYSA) was incorporated in the State of Pennsylvania in May 2013 as a Nonprofit Corporation for the following purposes: To teach sports to youth in the Philadelphia metropolitan area by providing basic to advanced level instruction, while also building character through teamwork, sportsmanship, leadership and decision-making in a competitive sports environment. And to further the development of talented amateur athletes by providing opportunities to play competitive team sports in local, regional and national amateur competitions.

PAYSA is a dynamic and successful youth sports organization that plays an integral role in the culturally, racially, socially and economically diverse West Philadelphia community it serves. PAYSA provides opportunities to the underserved families in the area who are unable to travel to other parts of the city to play youth sports. PAYSA also provides an option to those families in West Philly who have played in other organizations to stay and play youth sports in their local community.
