  • Modifications are made to the game to allow full participation and enjoyment to each child.
  • One-on-one assistance is available to those who need it.
  • It offers a recreational, leisure approach to the game of soccer.
  • TOPSoccer is coordinated through your local soccer community organization.
 
ATHLETES
A TOPSoccer player is defined as any youth player between the ages of 4 and 19 who has a disability that limits their ability to perform at the level of play in which they have chosen to partiicpate.
 
MISSION

Our goal is to enable the thousands of young athletes with disabilities to develop their physical fitness, technical skills, courage and self-esteem, through the joy and excitement of paying soccer.

VOLUNTEERS
How Can I Help?
 
There are thousands of children with disabilities who need, and can be provided with, the opportunity to play soccer through the TOPSoccer Program.  The TOPSoccer program would not exist without the countless hours donated by dedicated volunteers across the country.  Yet, we need more volunteers to help make this a reality for these children.  If you believe in the statement "the gift of life is the gift of giving," you are on the right track to becoming a volunteer.
