ABYSA and UNC Asheville Women's Soccer team with the help of the men's team have teamed up to offer a TOPSoccer program each spring. TOPSoccer is a community based soccer program for young athletes with exceptional needs ages 5-21. The emphasis of the program is on development, training, and meaningful participation rather than on competition. 
The program is structured in a way that players are assigned a “soccer buddy” and are grouped by age or ability and work through stations on the field with the focus on “High Fun”. Registration for this program is quick and easy by clicking on the REGISTER NOW to the right of the page and after creating your account or logging in you'll click on Available programs tab next to your child's name and the select TOPSoccer.

TOPSoccer was established to perpetuate the USYS’s 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 abilities”. Our goal is to enable these young athletes with disabilities to develop their physical fitness, technical skills, courage and self-esteem, through the joy and excitement of playing soccer.

The goal is to enable the thousands of young athletes with disabilities to become valued and successful members of the North Carolina Soccer family. TOPSoccer is designed to reach and meet the needs of players ages 5 to 21 with physical and/or mental disabilities. The program caters to player development rather than competition. TOPSoccer takes these children off the sidelines and allows them to participate in the game of soccer.
