Testimonials

Backyard Sports has made a great impact on my life and I cannot thank you enough for including me in the BYS family. I want to thank you for allowing me to share my love for the games that I enjoy playing and all the young players whose lives I had a chance to influence. I have acquired leadership and character skills that will stay with me forever.

Many of us remember how much fun sports was when we were growing up, before the win-at-all-cost mentality took over. Wanting to recreate that feeling was part of my motivation in starting Positive Coaching Alliance and it drives Backyard Sports as well. Danny Bernstein has created a time machine that gives kids today a similar experience to ours. If I were a kid I would want to be part of Backyard Sports.

BYS Prep Soccer takes it to another level. Whether you are just starting 
out or preparing for a travel season the coaches make sure that every player is challenged.  My daughter loved the staff and their level of expertise

Backyard Sports is a one of kind program.  They have the rare ability to engage and connect with every child from advanced to modest abilities.  The break the skills down to make the learning process fun.  Not only do they develop players, but, the coaching staff instills the right way to play the game....a sense of team, fair play, and self worth.  As a past vice president, coach, and board member of Scarsdale Little League, I can honestly say that our coaches and program have also learned many valuable lessons.

Backyard sports has been a wonderful experience for my kids. Alex and Gahl have shown tremendous development in the program and have improved in many technical areas of soccer; the program has also enabled my kids to play with many kids from diverse backgrounds that they would not have been able to play against before; most importantly, they always leave with a smile.

My son Ryan just joined BYS Prep Jr. soccer.  This is his first time playing soccer with a group. He enjoys coming every week. The trainers are great with the kids and they keep them engaged in the program. I also like the extra helping hands of the high school athletes. They are well organized, positive, and very helpful.

My son asks me almost everyday if he can go play soccer with the Backyard Soccer program. We are very lucky that we can be apart of this soccer program.

I am a professional soccer player, trainer, and mother. I highly recommend this program.
