The Outreach Program for Soccer
TOPSoccer is a community-based training and team placement program for athletes with disabilities, organized by youth soccer association volunteers. The program is designed to bring the opportunity of learning and playing soccer to any players, age 8 and older, who have a mental or physical disability. Our goal is [TOP Soccer] to enable the thousands of young athletes with disabilities to become valued and successful members of the Indiana Soccer & US Youth Soccer families.
TOPSoccer was formed to perpetuate the Indiana Soccer & US Youth Soccer mission statement which is, in part, "to foster the physical, mental and emotional growth and development of America’s youth through the sport of soccer at all levels of age and competition." There are thousands of children with disabilities who need, and can be provided with, the opportunity to play soccer through the TOPSoccer program.
