WELCOME TO TOPSoccer

The Outreach Program for Soccer for kids with special needs…

TOPSoccer is an Outreach Program for soccer sponsored by US Youth Soccer.  Saints Soccer Academy and Holy Redeemer Soccer Club have worked closely together to bring you this community-based soccer program for children with physical, social, mental or emotional challenges.  By teaming up children with Coaches and Buddies, the TOPSoccer program hopes to provide an enriching and fun program for all of the children and families we serve. We will teach valuable soccer and life skills and build community and inclusiveness through soccer!!

WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO PARTICIPATE? 

Any child 5 and up who would like to learn the beautiful game of soccer or improve their current soccer skills, for whom a typical soccer recreational program would not have enough support or the right structure to meet their needs.  Participants may have varied physical, mental or social-emotional special needs; The TOPSoccer program aims to provide that specific focus and one-on-one help to those children so that they can individually benefit in the best possible way.
