TOPSoccer (The Outreach for Soccer) is a nationwide program that provides soccer-based activities for players with physical or mental disabilities who are between 4 and 20 years of age. For students with special needs, this is a great opportunity to learn from a "buddy athlete" in a one on one setting. TOPSoccer is designed for kids of all abilities to learn how to play soccer at their own pace.

In addition, we welcome those who would like to be "buddies" for the players. We especially invite current coaches and their players to join in and work with this wonderful community of players and their families. This is also an opportunity for students looking for community service hours.

More information on the TOPSoccer program is available at the Massachussetts Youth Soccer website. For information about the Malden program, email
