The Outreach Program for Soccer is a community-based recreational program specifically designed to help athletes with physical and mental disabilities participate in the world’s most popular sport. Cal South’s numerous TOPSoccer programs bring soccer to players who refuse to let their challenges stop them from playing the sport that they love. The emphasis of this program is on development, training and providing meaningful participation rather than on competition. The basis of TOPSoccer is a modified version of the game of soccer, specifically altered to allow full participation and enjoyment for each athlete. TOPSoccer provides affordable opportunities for fitness and building self-esteem. One-on-one assistance is available for those who are in need of it. Above all, TOPSoccer offers a recreational and fun approach to the game of soccer.

Cal South’s TOPSoccer programs are entirely dependent upon the power provided by volunteers. Volunteering for TOPSoccer helps bring more awareness and understanding to the special needs community. You can even receive community service hours by helping out a TOPSoccer program. TOPSoccer relies heavily on help provided by “Buddies.” Anyone can be a TOPSoccer Buddy: parents, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles or friends. It doesn’t even matter if you have soccer experience. If you want to give back to your community and help this vastly underserved part of our population get the chance to participate in soccer, TOPSoccer is the place for you. If you want to take it a step further, why not become a coach? It’s easy, and there is a US Youth Soccer TOPSoccer Coaching Certification Course available free of cost.
