San Diego Soccer Club’s TOPSoccer Program Information
Welcome to our 2013 SDSC TOPSoccer program!
We welcome all challenged athletes to enjoy our spring and summer sessions.
The fun takes place Sunday mornings from 9:00 to 10:30 beginning April 14th at the Westview High School stadium.
Our spring sessions run April through June, our summer sessions August through October.
The registration fee is only $10, and serves you through both 2013 sessions.
We provide our athletes with a TOPSoccer training tee-shirt, an SDSC refillable water bottle, and snacks and fruit at the conclusion of each session.
If you have an athlete interested in participating in TOPSoccer or if you are interested in volunteering to support our program by being a ‘buddy’, please contact Kary Whitney and Chris Szarek, student coordinators, at firstname.lastname@example.org

What is TOPSoccer?
TOPSoccer (which stands for The Outreach Program for Soccer) is a community-based soccer program for young athletes with physical and mental disabilities athlete that provides a safe and fun environment for their child to participate in organized sports. These athletes compete with athletes of similar abilities. Any player, ages 4 and up, who possesses a physical or mental disability that limits their ability to perform at the level of play they have chosen to participate is eligible for the program. Emphasis of this program is on development, training, and providing meaningful participation rather than on competition. TOPSoccer’s goal is to enable the thousands of young athletes with disabilities to become valued and successful members of Cal South.
A successful TOPSOCCER program has the following:
• Placement of players by ability not age
• Highlight players’ ability rather than their disability
• Make players have a meaningful experience, not just a token player
• Make players achieve desired goals without assistance
• and FUN! FUN! FUN!
