Our fun Halloween Soccer Day last fall!

The Spring 2022 Recreational Soccer will start in early April. The first round of Saturday games will be Saturday, April 9th. We’ve restructured the program so that the Rec League is for PreK – 2nd graders ONLY. Last FAll (2021) that meant for the first time, the 1st and 2nd graders benefited from 2 additional, weekly practice days!

All 3rd graders are invited to participate in the Lawrence Youth Travel Program which includes weekly practices too!

This 10-week spring & fall program is in its 10th year and has already connected 2,000 Lawrence elementary school students, ages 4-12. This program is all about FUN & FUN-DAMENTALS. We want to give kids, and their families, a positive introduction to youth sports. We also want to encourage kids to adopt healthier, active lifestyles, and fill a community need for quality and affordable after-school sports experiences for kids. Programs like this are MORE important than ever in the face of COVID-19!

Some of our past and present partners include New Balance, Greater Lawrence Technical School, Massachusetts Youth Soccer, Commonwealth Motors, City of Lawrence, Tufts Floating Children’s Hospital, American Heart Association, Lawrence General Hospital, local soccer clubs, and local high school programs for volunteer coaching support, like Masconomet Regional and Lawrence High Schools.

New Director of Soccer Development

By hiring Chris Marin, Beyond Soccer is investing in your son & daughter’s future. Chris will invest his time developing Lawrence kids’ passion for the sport and healthy living.

Chris, the oldest of 9 brothers and sisters, began playing soccer at age 5. By age 8 he fell in love with the game. He credits soccer and those who pushed him to stick with it over the years to being constant positive influences in his life, always steering him in the right direction. He‘s always wanted the chance to pay forward the opportunities he’s been given in life through soccer. That led him to dedicate himself to coaching youth soccer, which he describes as “a chance to make my life better by making others‘ lives better.” His journey, however, didn’t begin as a youth soccer coach. He started as a Peabody Youth Soccer referee, where he also graduated high school. From there, he became a Salem YMCA after-school counselor. He continued his involvement in the soccer world becoming St. Mary‘s (Lynn) Varsity Assistant Coach, followed by Salem State College Goalkeeper Coach, North Shore United Soccer Club Coach (’09), Director of Coaches in Danvers. Chris is ready to apply these diverse experiences to Lawrence.
