“They do a very good job with the kids. They help them progress physically and mentally so they won’t be stuck at home doing nothing. Thank you for your collaboration!” – Volleyball and soccer parent

It made all the difference. Social interaction and being active is so essential to his emotional health. My child had been showing signs of depression until school reopened and sports were available to him. – Soccer parent

Beyond Volley was my first sport I attended. I loved that the coaches believed in us and made us feel more confident they are also very kind. I would recommend this program to family and friends because it is crazy fun and amazing to have amazing coaches teaching you. – Volleyball player

The people are amazing and the coaches as well and most of all they make me feel part of an amazing family. Beyond Volley has impacted me because I love to play volleyball and before I was not interested in any sports but now it gives me more motivation to play. – Volleyball player

Better health and better behavior because it’s about more than exercise it’s also about discipline. – Soccer parent
