2019 Spring TOPS

TOPS (The Outreach Program for Soccer) is a community based soccer program that is designed to meet the needs of children aged 4-14 years with physical and/or mental disabilities. The program is geared toward player development rather than to competition. Athletes are placed on teams according to ability NOT by age.

TOPS furthers US Youth Soccer's mission of fostering the physical, mental and emotional growth and development of America's youth through the sport of soccer at all levels. In short, TOPSoccer takes kids from the sidelines to participating in the game.
