TOPSoccer – The Outreach Program for Soccer – is a community-based training and team placement program for young athletes with disabilities. It is organized by state youth soccer association volunteers. The TOPSoccer program is designed to bring the opportunity of learning and playing soccer to any boy or girl with a mental or physical disability.
TOPSoccer was formed to support the United States Youth Soccer Association mission statement as it is applied to disabled young athletes. In part, that mission statement dictates that we all work “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.”
Here in Massachusetts, we are committed to providing the necessary resources to make TOPS successful in every way. Each program is different and its development is structured to the specific participants. Modifications are made to the game and training environment to allow full participation and enjoyment to each child that participates.
Massachusetts Youth Soccer encourages all of its organizations to utilize its resources and those of U.S. Youth Soccer to help structure a TOPS program in their area, and it encourages parents of disabled children to contact Ray Robinson, Director of Outreach Programs at firstname.lastname@example.org.
