TOPS SOCCER IS PROUDLY OFFERED COMPLETELY FREE OF CHARGE BY FIRST HERNANDO YOUTH SOCCER CLUB
WHAT IS TOPSOCCER?
TOPSoccer is a community-based training and team placement program for young athletes with disabilities, organized by First Hernando Youth Soccer Club 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 all young athletes with disabilities to become valued and successful members of the First Hernando soccer family!
TOPSoccer is a modified version of the game of soccer, designed to provide opportunities for special needs children ages 4-19. It provides a very affordable opportunity for fitness, fun and building self-esteem.
Modifications are made to the game to allow full participation and enjoyment to each child.
One-on-one assistance is available to those who need it.
It offers a recreational, leisure approach to the game of soccer.
A TOPSoccer player is defined as any youth player between the ages of 4 and 19 who has a disability that limits their ability to perform at the level of play in which they have chosen to participate.
TOPSoccer was formed to perpetuate the US Youth Soccer mission statement, which is, to foster the physical, mental and emotional growth and development through the sport of soccer at all levels of age and competition.
Our goal is to enable the many young athletes in and around Hernando county with disabilities to develop their physical fitness, technical skills, courage and self-esteem, through the joy and excitement of playing soccer.
How Can I Help?
There are many children with disabilities who need, and can be provided with the opportunity to play soccer through FHYSC's TOPSoccer Program. The TOPSoccer program would not exist without the many hours donated by dedicated volunteers and buddies in our club. Yet, we need more volunteers to help make this a reality for these children. If you believe in the statement “the gift of life is the gift of giving,” you are on the right track to becoming a Tops volunteer or buddy.
