TOPSoccer

TOPSoccer Mission

TOPSoccer is a community-based soccer program that is designed to meet the needs of athletes ages eight and older with physical and/or mental disabilities. The program is geared toward player development rather than to competition. Athletes are placed on teams according to ability NOT by age.

Who Plays TOPSoccer?

Any athlete with a disability including but not limited to: A.D.D., Autism, Hearing Impaired, Sight Impaired, Cerebral Palsy, Traumatic Brain Injury, Cystic Fibrosis, Down Syndrome, Multiple Sclerosis, Muscular Dystrophy, Seizure Disorder and Spinal Bifida. If you have a question about your athlete and whether this program fits their needs, contact the site coordinator nearest you. (See contact information below.)

Player Benefits

  • Sense of belonging, value of being part of a team
  • Improved self-esteem, fitness and social skills
  • Success based upon ability
  • FUN!

In an effort to better explain to our members what TOPSoccer is all about, we encourage you to view the photos above to see our athletes in action.

How can I get involved?

To volunteer as a coach or coach’s helper, contact Iván Woyno, MYSA Director of Member Services, at 952-252-0226 or ivanwoyno@mnyouthsoccer.org. (Letters of recommendation are issued to youth wishing to earn volunteer hours for their resume.)
