TOPSoccer (The Outreach Program for Soccer) is a community-based training and placement program for young athletes with disabilities. TOPSoccer athletes (open to children in grades K-12) are grouped by ability, not age. They will have the support of coaches and “buddies” who will foster independence and participation through adapting and modifying activities as needed.
Focus of TOPSoccer Program includes:
- Physical fitness
- Self esteem
- Development of skills
- Social interaction
- Community involvement

What is a Buddy?
A buddy is a volunteer paired up with a TOPSoccer athlete. Roles of a buddy can include creating a successful opportunity for an athlete, facilitating interactions with other athletes and keeping the athlete safe and engaged. Soccer experience is not required but can be a plus and you can earn community service hours for your commitment to the program. Training will be provided to all buddies.
Sign Up If…
- You are at least 12 years old,
- You can make a commitment to the program, attending at least 5 of the 7 sessions
- You can commit to attending one training session (about 30 minutes)
- You want to give back to your community in a unique and meaningful way!
Sessions are listed above. The sessions run from 3:45-4:45pm but volunteer hours are 3.30-4:45pm (first 15mins for setup and pre-practice meeting, next 60mins involves working with players).
