What is TOPSoccer?
The Outreach Program for Soccer (TOPSoccer) is a community based program for young athletes with disabilities. The program is designed to allow any boy or girl with a physical or mental disability to learn and play the game of soccer.
Who is eligible to play TOPSoccer?
TOPSoccer is open to player’s ages 4-21.
What will my child do during TOPSoccer?
When your child arrives, he or she will be place with a “buddy.” All buddies are volunteers from the club and community. The buddies will work with players as they go through different drills. Players will be learning and developing different soccer skills used in games. There will be anywhere from 5-6 drills throughout the practice. The session will end with shooting or small-sided games.
Who can volunteer?
The program looks for volunteers who are willing and flexible to work with our players on a weekly basis. No soccer experience is needed. The program looks for players/volunteers who are age 13 or older.
Where is TOPSoccer located and what do I need to bring?
TOPSoccer is located in the indoor facility of the Kirkwood Soccer Club. Players should wear shin guards, indoor or non-marking shoes, and bring water. All players will be provided a soccer ball at each session.
