What is TOPSoccer?
US Youth Soccer 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 volunteers. The program is designed to bring the opportunity of learning and playing soccer to any boy or girl, who has a mental or physical disability. Our goal is to enable the thousands of young athletes with disabilities to become valued and successful members of the US Youth Soccer family.
A TOPSoccer player is defined as any youth player between the ages of 4 and 17 who has a disability that limits their ability to perform at the level of play in which they have chosen to participate.
TOPSoccer was formed to perpetuate the US Youth Soccer mission statement, which is, to foster the physical, mental and emotional growth and development through the sport of soccer at all levels of age and competition.
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 playing soccer.
Toms River FC has embraced US Youth Soccer's TOPSoccer. TOPSoccer is a noncompetitive program specifically designed to help children with autism or physical and/or other developmental challenges learn the game of soccer.
