The Outreach Program for Soccer (TOPSoccer) is our program for players 4 years of age and older who have developmental and/or physical disabilities. The program is based on skill level, not age, and participants include players, coaches and buddies – volunteers who are paired with each player to assist with the game.
TOPSoccer creates an opportunity for players with disabilities to be part of the soccer community, where they grow emotionally and physically and where their families, coaches and buddies connect to share in the joy of playing soccer.
TOPSoccer programs are community-run programs at the local level. We currently have 1 program located in Idaho Falls and are looking to expand into other areas of the state with their help.
We will be having an informational meeting on July 21st at 2:00 pm MST. The link to join this virtual meeting will be sent upon completion of the survey!
