TOPSoccer

TOPSoccer: “The Outreach Program for Soccer” is designed for school-aged

children with physical and/or cognitive disabilities.  The program helps serve the

physical and social needs of our community’s children who want to participate

in fun activities, but who, because of their disabilities, may feel left out of

traditional sports programs.  This summer season of soccer training and games

is taught by caring adult and high school volunteers.  Teams are divided based

on the age and ability of participants attending on a given day.

 

We are looking for players AND dedicated peer buddies
Come join in the FUN!

What TOPSoccer families have to say...
Dear Coach Cameron and Coach Debbie,
 
I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you to both of you for all of your time, effort and caring that the two of you put into this season. In some ways this has been the best season yet that Cynthia and Scotty have had with TOPSoccer, not that the other seasons were not good (they were!). But, I saw my children connected, engaged and empowered in a way that I had not seen in previous seasons. They are also seeing friends from past seasons and I dare say, feeling a sense of security, as a result.
 
Additionally, if you could please let the peer buddies know that although they did not have much time with the children, their contribution was felt. Cynthia and Scotty always informed me when Friday was coming so that I would not "forget" to take them to soccer. I am so grateful that they gave so much of themselves from the time they dedicated to the compassionate way I saw them nurture all of these special children.
 
I tell everyone I know how wonderful this program is and how blessed, I feel, that my children are fortunate enough to have the TOPSoccer program available to them.
 
Thank you all very much!
 
~ Michelle Johnson, September 2009
