The Outreach Program for Soccer

TOPSoccer (The Outreach Program for Soccer) is a US Youth Soccer community-based soccer program that is designed to meet the needs of athletes up to age 18 with physical, developmental or intellectual disabilities. The program is geared toward player development rather than competition. Athletes are placed on teams according to ability NOT by age. Players will be assigned a "buddy" who will support and guide players during practice sessions and scrimmages.

TOPSoccer Buddies 

Each session will have a group of trained coaches and buddies to lead the athletes during the session. Buddies are assigned to athletes who require one-on-one attention in order to succeed. Buddies will typically be DDYSC Youth players, siblings or volunteers who will be trained prior to the sessions. We do our best to choose buddies each season who can be at every practice to provide stability for the athlete.

We believe the best experience for most athletes comes in the relationship that they build with their buddy.  For this reason, we pair our buddies and athletes for the entire season, and give preference to buddies who can attend every session.  

Buddies should be at least 13 years of age.

The number of buddies accepted depends on the number of athletes that register.  Buddy applicants will hear back from program coordinators about two weeks before season starts about whether they have been chosen to participate.
