TOPSoccer — General Information
TOPSoccer is "The Outreach Program for Soccer." Formed by US Youth Soccer to further their goal "To foster the physical, mental and emotional growth and development of America's youth in soccer at all levels of age and competition." It also meets Oregon Youth Soccer's mission statement, "To foster an environment that promotes the physical, mental and emotional development of Oregon's youth through the sport of soccer."

History
TOPSoccer is free to any person with a disability. The program in Oregon was begun in 1997 by Diane Smith, with one location. We now have programs across the state offering a soccer experience to children with disabilities. The Oregon Department of Education indicates that more than 55,000 children in grades K-8 are determined as having disabilities. Our program touches just a few of these individuals, and we hope it continues to grow and reach many more.
