                                        Vermont TOPSoccer

               is looking for athletes for the fall program!

 
 
 
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 children with
special needs, ages 4-21. It provides a very affordable opportunity for fitness, fun, and building self-esteem.
 
  • - TOPSoccer modifications are made to the game to allow full participation and enjoyment of each child
  • - TOPSoccer Buddies provides one-on-one assistance
  • - TOPSoccer 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. 
 
 
Athletes
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.  
 
 
Mission
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
 
 
Volunteers
There are thousands of children with disabilities who need, and can be provided with, the opportunity to play
soccer through the TOPSoccer program. The TOPSoccer program would not exist without the countless hours
donated by dedicated volunteers across the country. Yet, we need more volunteers to make this a reality for
these children.
