TOPSoccer (The Outreach Program for Soccer) is a community based training and team placement program for young athletes with disabilities. TOPSoccer was formed to perpetuate the EPYSA and US Youth Soccer mission statement which is in part "to foster the physical, mental, and emotional growth and development of America's youth through the sport of soccer at all levels of age and competition." For more information about the TOPSoccer program in general, check out EPYSA's website.
BSC's TOPSoccer program is open to any boy or girl ages 4-16 with special needs. We welcome children inside and outside of the Boyertown Area School District. We open our program to any child who is looking for "a place where they can fit in." Each player is provided a uniform consisting of a soccer shirt, shorts, and socks in the sizes of their choice.
We play and practice at the Boyertown Junior High West Center and Boyertown YMCA (weather permitting) on Saturday mornings from 10:00 am until 11:30 am. Please visit our schedule page for specific dates and times.
Each player is partnered up with on or more "Soccer Buddies". Players from the Boyertown Area School District, as well as players from within the Boyertown Soccer Club volunteer as buddies for the program. Buddies are an essential part of our program! The dedicated volunteers teach their players the fundamentals of soccer and make sure the players are having FUN, FUN, FUN! To volunteer as a 'Soccer Buddy', please visit our volunteer page for more information!
