Beyond the Ball has been featured in multiple forums of print and online media.

Little Village couple stand tall against gang-bangers – Chicago Sun Times

by Mark Konkol- 4.02.11

The Chicago Sun-Times looks at how the threats made on Rob and Amy CastaƱeda’s life led them to create Beyond the Ball, and how one of the gang-bangers who burned their house has now come full circle, with his own daughter enrolled in Beyond the Ball programming.

Beyond the Ball featured in international news – CNN

CNN International Edition – 9.28.10

CNN visited our Bitty Ball program, and reports on the impact Beyond the Ball is having in the community:

Beyond the Ball goes to Washington to address Congress – Up 2 Us

Press Release – 9.22.10

Beyond the Ball was invited to Washington D.C. to address Congress in September. Our very own Bitty Ball leader, ten year-old Miguel Leonardo, stood up and let Congress know just how much impact Beyond the Ball has had on his life. Miguel went through our Bitty Ball program as a participant and now serves as a coach. Miguel’s growth inspires us to continue our work; hopefully, he inspires Congress as well.

Community organizers use old school street ball for neighborhood change – Chicago Journal

by Greg Skinner – 8.25.10

The Chicago Journal looks at the impact of B-Ball on the Block and the Citywide finals co-facilitated by Beyond the Ball in August, 2010. In this piece, Executive Director Rob CastaƱeda explains why these sorts of activities have value to more than just the kids participating, but to the neighborhood as a whole: “When kids with or without families participate in a positive activity in a specific place they take more responsibility of the court area and surrounding space.”

Beyond the Ball, Chicago nonprofit, teaches kids a new way to interact – MSNBC/Contribute Magazine

by Rebecca Sherman – 11.17.08
