Starkville Soccer Association - TOPSoccer Program
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 association volunteers. The program is designed to bring the opportunity of learning and playing soccer to any boy or girl, who has a mental or physical disability. Our goal is to enable the thousands of young athletes with disabilities to become valued and successful members of the US Youth Soccer family. How do I participate? Contact SSA (email@example.com) to find out more about getting involved with our TOPSoccer program.
Why does SSA need a TOPSoccer Program?
TOPSoccer was formed to perpetuate the US Youth Soccer mission statement which is, in part, "to foster the physical, mental and emotional growth and development of America's youth through the sport of soccer at all levels of age and competition." There are thousands of children with disabilities who need, and can be provided with, the opportunity to play soccer through the TOPSoccer program. This program is designed to offer young athletes with disabilities, ages 4 and up, the opportunity to play soccer in a supervised environment. Registration is free and includes a uniform jersey. Register online at www.starkvillesoccer.com/.
These fun events will be 1 hour with the first 30 minutes being a practice and the last being a "game". The program will get all the players the same color team t-shirt so that teams can be divided each meeting based on attendance. The goal of each event is to have a "buddy" for each participant so there is one person assigned to each player. Parents can be on the sidelines enjoying the game.
Each player will get a cotton jersey with logos.
Sundays from 3:00 - 4:00 p.m.
5/14 - This will be an event at our Mother's Day Mayhem Tournament. The TOPSoccer team will play a game and receive medals.
