TOPSoccer Program Overview:
TOPSoccer (The Outreach Program for Soccer) is a community-based training and team placement program for young athletes with disabilities. The program is designed to bring the opportunity of learning and playing soccer to any player who has a mental or physical disability. 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. 

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.

TOPSoccer Developmental Focuses:
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”.

TOPSoccer Coaches and Buddies:
ABYSA and UNC Asheville Women's Soccer team with the help of the men's team have teamed up to offer a TOPSoccer coaches and buddies for the program each Spring.
