TOPSoccer - The Outreach Program for Soccer

TOPSoccer, The Outreach Program for Soccer, is a New York State West and US Youth Soccer official program. This program is designed for children with disabilities, ages 5 to 21. This program accommodates all disabilities whether mental or physical. This is an exciting program that brings the joy of playing soccer to players who have not traditionally had a place in the youth soccer system.

The key to this program is flexibility. TOPSoccer can offer opportunities such as single day clinics, jamborees, weekly training, individual skills programs and even recreational league play. TOPSoccer is fully supported with training materials, assessment tools and a statewide support network to help get local programs off the ground.

Several TOPSoccer programs are up and running in our state. For more information about TOPSoccer, contact Scot Boniface at
