Fairview Sports and Orthopedic Care

MYSA is proud of its more than seven-year relationship with Minnesota Sports Medicine (MSM). MSM has provided excellent service to the MYSA soccer community through their outstanding athletic trainers who make sure our youth athletes are safe at all MYSA sponsored events and tournaments. They also provide parents and coaches with sports medicine tips in each issue of the Minnesota Soccer Times as well as opportunities for coaches and parents to receive further training in first aid. Their First Step – soccer specific training video is an excellent tool to safe development of soccer skills.

As of September 1, 2009 MSM will be known as Fairview Sports and Orthopedic Care. They have a new name, but will continue to provide the same great services (listed below) to MYSA and its member clubs and families.
