TOPSoccer (The Outreach Program for Soccer) is a community-based training and team placement program for young athletes with disabilities, organized by youth soccer association coaches and volunteers. This program is designed to bring the opportunity of learning and playing soccer to any child age 5 and up who has an intellectual disability or physical impairments. The goal is to enable young athletes with disabilities to become part of the US Youth Soccer family.
TOPSoccer was formed to perpetuate the US Youth Soccer mission statement which is, in part, "to foster the physical, mental and emotional growth and development of America's youth through the sport of soccer at all levels of age and competition." There are thousands of children with disabilities who need, and can be provided with, the opportunity to play soccer through the TOPSoccer program.
