Beyond Soccer is a sports-based youth development organization serving the City of Lawrence, Massachusetts. Soccer is the means by which we engage Lawrence youth and expose them to new experiences, both on and off the field, that build self-confidence, promote healthy living, leadership skills and academic achievement. Our programs have reached more than 2,000 students since our incorporation in 2011.

Soccer Programs

Soccer is the vehicle we use to connect and inspire Lawrence youth and their families. In addition to its obvious health benefits, soccer promotes long term, year-round involvement. We meet elementary students in our school-day programs, invite them to join our recreational leagues, summer camps, and finally, after several years of play, they join our travel teams. Today, our average length of player participation is 4 years. A handful of Beyond Soccer kids, now heading off to college, have been part of our programs for 7 years. Here are some of the ways these kids are connected through soccer:
