Welcome to our SDSC TOPSoccer Program!
We welcome all challenged athletes and their families who love playing soccer to enjoy our spring and fall sessions. In addition, we provide opportunities for our TOPSoccer athletes to participate in soccer festivals and tournaments year-round, including one of SDSC and San Diego's biggest tournaments, the Pegasus Cup.
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!
