About Beyond Soccer
The Beyond Soccer League is a non-profit recreational soccer program serving the Antioch area through the ministry of Ultimate Goal. Our goal is to create a FUN soccer environment while attempting to be more strategic and specific in providing valuable life lessons to our players through coach mentorship and practice session plans that incorporate valuable life lesson principles.
We play our games at the beautiful Orchard Bend Park on Pettus Road (5605 Pettus Road).
Our recreational program is led by our Director of Recreation John Stayskal who has years of recreational soccer league, coaching and youth ministry experience. He holds the Positive Coaching Alliances Double Goal Coach Certifications in "Culture, Practices and Games", and "Coaching for Winning and Life Lessons" He also ran a local "Soccer For Success" program through the US Soccer Foundation and has attended numerous Urban Soccer Symposiums hosted by the US Soccer Foundation. John’s experience includes operating a recreational soccer league in Antioch for 8 years and being the director of recreational soccer for 3 years for what was the HYSA league in West Nashville – a league of over 1000 players. He was also the lead coach for the GJCC's Playball and Youth Soccer program for children 3-10 years old.
