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

Beyond Soccer is a sports-based, youth development organization. Soccer is the means by which we engage Lawrence youth, ages 4-18, and connect them to new experiences, on and off the field, that build confidence and create opportunities for leadership, healthy living and academic achievement.

  • We prioritize fitness & healthy eating in an effort to reduce the City’s high obesity rates. Our teaching kitchen is also getting more kids & parents cooking.

  • Lawrence Travel Soccer is our core program. Soccer is the “vehicle” we use to connect, mentor and inspire kids, on-and-off the field, over an extended period.

  • Our oldest student-athletes serve as role models in their community. We give them the chance to coach, work and attend leadership conferences.

  • Only 15% of Lawrence High School students play sports. We are working hard to change that with new programs and sports, like our Sports Leadership Academy with Everyone’s A Player.

  • We require travel players to share their report cards. If a player is struggling in school, we do not withhold play, but rather, seek out academic resources to help.
