"Succeeding on and off the field through the sport of soccer."

for website-patricia with medal

“My family and I have watched my daughter grow so much in a positive way since she joined Beyond Soccer four years ago. I can tell by looking at her while she is on that field kicking that ball that she loves soccer and has more confidence. Soccer has not only helped her, but it has helped my family come together to watch her games. It has brought us all closer. Soccer has also brought the community closer and it has given kids good opportunities. It has helped our kids not only physically, but also mentally.” – José Inirio

Got Cleats?

Too Big, Too small, consider donating them to Beyond Soccer!

Because Beyond Soccer is a young organization, we depend heavily on equipment donations for player participation. If you have gently used cleats,shin pads, soccer balls or other soccer gear, please consider making a donation.


Got cleats? Soccer strengthens community!  The challenges in launching and sustaining inner city soccer programs are well documented. Some barriers are economic, while others are logistical – the lack of regular transportation or a safe and accessible field. I have been deeply touched by our neighbors and their willingness to help us grow this beautiful game in the City of Lawrence. Until 2008 Lawrence has not been able to field a single travel soccer team or develop an in-city/town recreational program for young kids. We have worked hard to change that reality, but each season we face incredible demands, including field space, uniform and equipment needs.  Andover Youth Soccer has consistently stepped up and provided field access when we have simply had no alternatives in our own City. Swampscott, Danvers, North Andover and Georgetown youth soccer programs, coaches and community members have also provided a great boost to our program and our players by passing back their used gear. This support has been instrumental for our start up program.

Although we all root passionately for our respective towns and teams when we  face each other during the spring and fall travel seasons, the wins and losses fade pretty quickly. What does not fade, are the community connections. Soccer provides a unique bridge across neighborhoods and between cultures. It helps us remember what the game is it is all about. Soccer strengthens communities and provides growth opportunities for everyone involved. Thank you to those who have helped us expand soccer experiences for more kids and families in Lawrence. If you have cleats sitting in your garages or hall closets that are not being used, consider us before you toss them - Stephanie, Director
