Ohio North TOPSoccer

US Youth Soccer TOPSoccer (The Outreach Program for Soccer) is an adaptive soccer program for athletes with special needs. TOPSoccer athletes spend time learning both soccer and socialization skills in a safe, accepting environment with the assistance of volunteer buddies and coaches.  Each session emphasizes fun and every athlete is challenged to grow and learn within his/her abilities. 

Through the assistance of buddies and coaches, the athletes are encouraged to give their best effort, work hard to be the best player he/she can be and join their fellow players to be a great teammate.  Anyone with an intellectual disability and/or physical impairment is welcome to join a local TOPSoccer program.

For more information or to start a program in your community please contact Jen Fickett jfickett@ohionorthsoccer.org.
