When it comes to sports, particularly team sports, kids with special needs are often left without an option. Now, that is about to change for the popular sport of soccer. The national US Youth Soccer organization is teaming up with local area soccer clubs to bring a unique soccer program to this area.
The program,called TOPSoccer, is designed to meet the needs of children with physical and/or mental disabilities. It targets those kids ages 4-18 who would like to play soccer, but are challenged by the traditional soccer environment, including those kids with physical supports and wheelchairs.
TOPSoccer is a community-based, outreach soccer program that is run by local volunteers. Player participation and development are key elements of the program, as players are placed on teams according to ability and NOT by age. The program is designed to provide a fun and meaningful experience for the family, while also improving the overall fitness, self-esteem and social skills of the child athlete in a safe and caring environment. The program will also provide parents the opportunity to network with other families for support and information sharing.
TOPSoccer furthers US Youth Soccer’s mission of fostering the physical, mental and emotional growth and development of America’s youth through the sport of soccer at all levels. In short, it takes kids from the sidelines to participating in the game. Just talk with the parents or participants of TOPSoccer and you’ll understand why TOPSoccer exists.
EYSC participates as a host club for TopSoccer activity dates each year. The dates, locations and times will be posted in the News section of our website when those activity dates draw near. This participation provides an opportunity for local families to experience and become familiar with the program and meet the Coaches and other volunteers. TOPSoccer is also seeking adult and teenage volunteers to serve as player buddies.
