Edward Williams Elementary School, Mt. Vernon
"The program has given the children so much, including a new network of friends, new skills, the opportunity to have instruction from professional coaches and a strong framework to build their self esteem. I would encourage parents who desire to expand their child’s horizon to look into Backyard Sports. There is no greater reward than to see your child learning while having fun."

"Backyard Sports Cares is unlike any other program we tried. You can find kindness elsewhere but not good teaching. The BYSC teaching style is individualized to each child and is highly motivating because the children experience success."
Tricia Zarro, Parent

"The best thing about this program is that children that wouldn’t have the joy of participating in ‘organized’ sports get to do so and their families have the opportunity to connect with other special needs families and share in their children’s accomplishments. Being a volunteer for this program is the most rewarding experience I’ve ever had. Backyard Sports is not a community service program to me, it is more like a family. All I hoped for was to impact the life of a child but instead the children changed me and shaped my life for the better."
