Initially, I wanted to find an outlet for my Son to burn off some energy. SBU turned out to be a Blessing. My Son loves playing Soccer every Saturday at South Bronx United. The recreational program is well run and serves our youngsters well. You can have your Boy or Girl come out and enjoy Soccer from as early as 4 Years Old with responsible volunteers. They also have an after school program and College Prep programs for our High School Kids. Congratulations to Andrew and Carlos on an outstanding Organization that continues to grow and serve our future leaders.
