Advantages of Youth Engagement in Sports

At Midland Athletics Syndicate (MAS), the belief is to provide a safe and accessible sports complex for the youth of Midland to stay active, irrespective of challenging weather conditions such as wind, cold, and extreme heat.

The youth sports programs not only encourage physical exercise but also contribute to the mental well-being of young athletes. MAS offers affordable or even free summer camps to keep kids engaged, active, and protected from harsh sunlight.

MAS is committed to enhancing youth sports involvement in underprivileged communities by providing free programs or facilitating scholarship/sponsored opportunities. MAS’s sports programs expose kids to diverse social groups and cultural experiences, fostering inclusivity.
