South Shore Select is doing youth sports right.  They believe in developing the whole child, where that child is at, and who the child is, regardless of ability or level.  This includes developing their ability in the game of soccer, but just as importantly, cultivating their confidence, self-efficacy, and character in life.  They prioritize relationship and connection with a people-first focus which I believe is the reason for the impact and success they’ve had.  It’s an honor to be part of the Club!
