"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, parent

"Soccer is the sport I really love and it has helped me become who I am now. Soccer is not only a sport, it is also a way we all learn how to communicate with others and meet people from different places. This summer I went to Boston College Soccer Camp all the way in Boston, so that I could learn new tricks and meet new people." – Patricia Inirio, Esperanza Academy, 7th grade student
