“I love watching the excitement of a young athlete when trying a new sport for the first time. I love that we are offering older athletes the extra training needed to make their middle or high school team or secure a scholarship. I am passionate about the life skill children can learn through team sports as I have experienced it myself and seen it first-hand in my children. I feel blessed to have found a job where I believe in our mission and get to work alongside co-workers who feel more like family.”

Melissa Seif

CLUB OPERATIONS DIRECTOR

“I love working at MSA because I am passionate about cultivating strong, independent, problem solving women who also have a love for sport and recreation.

Anna Tollefson

"I believe that sports is one of the greatest vehicles for teaching life lessons. It is important to me that our players learn what it means to sacrifice ...to make good choices ...and to learn how to work alongside others. These are the building blocks of good relationships and strong communities. With an elementary-age child at home, working at MSA allows me to impact our future and make it a little better for her."
