US Youth Soccer TOPSoccer (The Outreach Program for Soccer) program is a community
based training and 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. 
What is TOPSoccer? 
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 definted 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
