What is TOPSoccer - US Youth Soccer TOPSoccer (The Outreach Program for Soccer) is a community-based training and team placement program for young athletes with disabilities, organized by youth soccer association volunteers. The program is designed to bring the opportunity of learning and playing soccer to any boy or girl, who has a mental or physical disability. Our goal is to enable the thousands of young athletes with disabilities to become valued and successful members of the US Youth Soccer family.
What is The TOPSoccer Midwest Showcase? - US Youth Soccer’s Midwest Region is excited to announce the first TOPSoccer event to be included within a major US Youth Soccer National Championship Series event! This is a unique event that we will be planning to offer on an annual basis to coincide with the Midwest Regional Championships, where the elite teams in the Midwest battle it out for a chance to play in the National Championships. Our goal is to expose these players and their families to the joys of TOPSoccer while providing an amazing experience for our own players.
