What is TOPSoccer?
TOPSoccer (The Outreach Program for Soccer) is a community-based training and team program for youth athletes with disabilities. TOPSoccer programming in Wisconsin is organized by volunteers. TOPS is designed to provide an opportunity of socialization, learning, and physical activity to any boy or girl, typically ages 5-19, who has a cognitive or physical disability. Please visit the USYS TOPSoccer page for a comprehensive outline of TOPSoccer.
How do I join?
Wisconsin has TOPS locations across the state. The local programs are run autonomously with support from WYSA. If you’re looking for more information about TOPSoccer, trying to decide if TOPSoccer is a good fit, or looking for a local program, contact Meghan Ward. If you have questions about a specific location, you can contact the program lead directly using the information below.
How do I become a Buddy?
TOPSoccer is always on the lookout for Buddies! TOPS would not be possible without the support from our fantastic Buddies. A Buddy does not need any prior experience in soccer or in helping special needs kids. Find the location that best suits you and contact the program lead to see if there is anything you need to do prior to attending your first session. To help you prepare, we recommend watching the below TOPS Buddy videos, it’ll take about 20 minutes total.
Can I start a TOPSoccer Program?
Of course! TOPS is growing at an incredible rate in Wisconsin. If you are thinking about starting a program or have any questions, contact Meghan Ward. Additionally, the Midwest Region created a series called TOPS In A Box to answer FAQs and ease the start up process.
