"We’re absolutely thrilled with YSI! For our son, he’s given an opportunity to have fun, learn, and live his passion for the game of futbol. For us, the parents, it’s a wonderful community that combines physical, social, and emotional development – building confidence in our son to be the best on and off the pitch. Furthermore, YSI really delivers a first-class experience because they understand what’s important and what it takes to create an environment where all kids feel welcomed, safe, and cared for.” Jason Braschayko

"Thank you YSI family. Unfortunately, we are going back to Spain so our son will not be able to join the team next season. We just wanted to say THANK YOU!!! Not only to the coaches, but also the kids and parents who have made this a great team/family. YSI soccer has been the best activity for our family in these COVID times, giving our kids a fun activity to do and a lot of friends to play with. For that we will always be grateful! Keep it up with the great work and see you all soon!!!” Ignacio Conde

Joining the YSI family 3 years ago was one of the best decisions we’ve made! We initially chose them based on their location and convenient class times but came to love them as they built our daughter and son’s soccer skills, confidence and sportsmanship! Both our children have built deep attachments to their coaches and team mates...even during the pandemic we are part of the twice a week team soccer zoom meets.........GO YSI!“ - Becky Gordon
