US Youth Soccer TOPSoccer (The Outreach Program for Soccer) is a community-based training program for all athletes with intellectual, emotional, and or physical disabilities. The program strives to provide soccer opportunities (the opportunity of soccer) for players to develop at their own pace in a safe, fun, and supportive/inclusive environment.
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.
Other Info: Equipment is provided, players should bring their own soccer ball and wear appropriate soccer attire
TOPSoccer is not possible without the help of volunteers. The program is designed to have each participant paired with a buddy. The more volunteers we have in the program the more players we're able to accommodate.
Those interested in being a buddy should send their name and contact info via email HERE.
DC Soccer Club is proud to join forces with Skills on the Hill to support TOPSoccer programming for youth athletes with intellectual, emotional or physical differences in the D.C. area. Skills on the Hill (SOTH) therapists will be volunteering onsite to offer support and guidance for participants and DC Soccer Club staff during weekly outdoor activities. SOTH is excited to have the opportunity to support TOPSoccer's mission of providing access to sport and recreation for children of all ability levels.
