US Youth Soccer TOPSoccer (The Outreach Program for Soccer) is a community-based training and team placement program for young athletes with disabilities, organized by youth soccer volunteers. The program is design to bring the opportunity of learning and playing soccer to any boy or girl, who has a cognitive or physical disability. Our goal is to enable the young athletes with disabilities to become valued and successful members of the community.
Each season is organized in a way to bring fun and enjoyment to your child while involve in an athletic activity. Exercise and social awareness are some of the benefits you will see in TOPSoccer programs.
A TOPSoccer Buddy is an invaluable volunteer. The TOPSoccer buddy is not a player and does not score goals. A TOPSoccer Buddy can be a caregiver, aide, family member, same-aged peer, teenager or adult.

Continuously monitor/assist the player
Role varies widely depending upon needs of the player
Interact with players, coaches, & parents
