TOP Soccer in Oregon

About:
TOPSoccer is “The Outreach Program for Soccer” formed by US Youth Soccer to further their goal of fostering the physical, mental, and emotional growth and development of America’s youth in soccer at all levels of age and competition.

Mission/Philosophy:
“To foster an environment that promotes the physical, mental, and emotional development of Oregon’s youth through the sport of soccer.”

What they do:

TOPSoccer is available to any person with a disability. The programs are managed by local soccer clubs with support from the State Association (see below for programs in Oregon). The local clubs find volunteers to run the program and OYSA provides all of the equipment such as specialty materials needed, such as soft soccer balls, “Pop Up” goals, equipment bags, “bell” balls for children with a vision impairment, and “wheelchair” balls. Most programs run 8 week seasons several times throughout the year.
