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.
The need for a topsoccer program
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.
The 1st Annual US Youth Soccer 2021 National TOPSoccer Symposium is an opportunity for state / local program leaders to come together to share best practices and hear from a variety of subject matter experts. The goal of the Symposium is to improve the quality of each state associations TOPSoccer program and help its leaders better understand the unique issues facing the individual programs so that participation can increase both in number of clubs offering TOPSoccer as well as the number of athletes / volunteers of each club.
Given current travel and health concerns, the 2021 TOPSoccer National Symposium has moved online and will be 100% virtual! We are excited to share the dates and times.
