Nebraska State Soccer TOPSoccer Programs

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 the 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. Our goal is to enable the thousands of young athletes with disabilities to become valued and successful members of the Nebraska State Soccer & US Youth Soccer families.
