The Harrisburg Heat of the Major Arena Soccer League (MASL) will return to action in December after losing the last half of last year’s season during the Covid pandemic. Many of the players, including those from other countries, will be back. The team recently held tryouts that attracted players from around the country, and invited some players to training camp. 

Kevin Healey, President of the Harrisburg Heat, said the 2021-2022 season will have 24 games ending April 3 with playoffs to follow. The league will be 15 or 16 teams (it lost Orlando). 

Summer camps for youth 5-14 have already started and continue throughout the summer. For more information on camps and on the Heat, check out the Heat website at https://harrisburgheat.com/
