What is TOPSoccer?

TOPSoccer (The Outreach Program for Soccer) is a community-based training and team placement program for young athletes with special needs. The program, designed and administered by US Youth Soccer and its volunteer TOPSoccer Committee, provides meaningful learning, development, and physical participation opportunities to these young athletes through the game of soccer. The emphasis of this program is on development, training, and meaningful participation rather than on competition. TOPSoccer was formed to perpetuate the US Youth Soccer mission statement, which is, “to foster the physical, mental, and emotional growth and development through the sport of soccer at all levels of age and competition.” Our goal is to enable thousands of young athletes with disabilities to develop their physical fitness, technical skills, courage and self esteem, through the joy and excitement of playing soccer.

What is the North Alabama TOPSoccer Program?

The North Alabama TOPSoccer Program began Spring of 2010 with 13 players.  TOPSoccer is affilated with HFC(Huntsville Futbol Club).  TOPSoccer fits with the main goal of HFC which is to help young athletes develop their physical fitness, technical skills, courage and self esteem, through the joy and excitement of playing soccer.  Our motto is “To Focus on the Ability.”

We have training for all type of players and will evaluate them and place them in the correct group at the beginning of the year.  We  also offer individual training to players, who do well in a one-on-one setting because we would like to give every child in the North Alabama area an opportunity to play soccer.

Our program is successful because of the dedication of the volunteers and the parents’ participation. Each special needs player receives one-on-one attention at all times from a middle school, high school, college age volunteer. Each skill or game is adapted to each child’s special need and every child participates at the level that they are able. The admiration and friendships between the players and coaches will leave both with valuable and lasting memories.
