What Parents Are Saying!

“I like that Backyard Sports builds on the basics and each week is a new program. It’s not just kicking or hitting balls, but getting taught athletic skills. Dillon needs repetition and he gets that here. He’s learning.” - Barbara Roppollo

“My son Jake has participated in all of the Backyard Sports Plus programs. He has never been able to previously function in other sports environments. Here he looks forward to coming and walks away feeling successful. He’s proud to tell his friends that he plays on a basketball team. I am happy to see him proud.” - Sara Cremins

“My son does not likechange or newpeople and places. But after 30 minutes of Backyard Sports Plus, Ethan was laughingand having fun. The wonderful staff consists of adult coaches andvolunteers of various ages. I actually cried I was so happy that this was the only time that Ethan joined a large group.” - Louisa Johnson

Thank you for your excellent program, your responsiveness, your warmth. Our son, David, will succeed in life because of programs like yours.” - Audrey and Bruce Nathanson
