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.

TOPSoccer is a modified version of the game of soccer, designed to provide opportunities for special needs children ages 4-21. It provides a very affordable opportunity for fitness, fun, and building self-esteem.
- Modifications are made to the game to allow full participation and enjoyment to each child
- One-on-one assistance with TOPSoccer Buddies
- It offers a recreational, leisure approach to the game of soccer
- TOPSoccer is coordinated through the Vermont Soccer Association

The TOPSoccer program is designed and administered by US Youth Soccer and its volunteer committee provides meaningful learning, development, and physical participation opportunities to these young athletes through the game of soccer.

A TOPSoccer player is defined as any youth player between the ages of 4 and 21 who has a disability that limits their ability to perform at the level of play in which they have chosen to participate.

TOPSoccer was formed to perpetuate the US Youth Soccer Mission statement, which is, to foster the physical, mental, and emotional growth and development through the sport of soccer at all levels of age and competition. Our goal is to enable young athletes with disabilities to develop their physical fitness, technical skills, courage, and self-esteem, through the job and excitement of playing soccer.

Vermont currently hosts two TOPSoccer programs. For more information about Essex TOPSoccer and Central Vermont TOPSoccer, please refer to the details provided below.  Registration information and links can also be found at the bottom of this page.

***TOPSoccer creates a fun, adaptive environment for players 4-21 years old. Programs are geared toward player development rather than competition.
