About MTAA

MTAA was organized over 50 years ago to provide a variety of sports programs for the children of Muhlenberg Township.  It has grown to include football, field hockey, cheerleading, wrestling, basketball, softball and baseball.  It is a non-profit organization run by a board of directors consisting of an executive board and other elected individuals.  The organization is governed by by-laws, and meets one time per month.  Meetings are opened to all members of the organization. The meetings are on the 4th Monday of each month except on or near a holiday. Check the meeting dates here.

The coaches are members of the community and are volunteers, they receive no monetary compensation.  Most have a child participating in a sport, but is not required.  Some have prior experience, some do not, but they all share a common characteristic – the love of wanting to work with children.  A coach is a strong role model for the children.  All parents are invited to help coach.  Prior clearances are required, see the Forms Page.  If you do not coach, we encourage you to get to know your child’s coaches.  Open communication between a parent and coach is vital to an enriched opportunity for your child.
