TOPSoccer color (vector)


TOPSoccer is designed to reach and meet the needs of children aged 5-19 years with physical and/or mental disabilities. The program caters to player development rather than competition. TOPSoccer takes the kids off the sidelines and allows them to particpate in the game of soccer. 

Through the efforts of US Youth Soccer, ASA, and other members of US Youth Soccer the children participating in the TOPSoccer program will have the opportunity to develop a sense of belonging on and off the soccer pitch as well as learn the value of being part of a team, improve their self-esteem, fitness and social skills. But most importantly, enjoy the great game of soccer!


TOPS Course

Our goal is to enable the thousands of young athletes with disabilities to become valued and successful members of the US Youth Soccer family. Currently, there are only a handful of programs across Alabama and we would love to see more programs offered for players of all abilities.
