CYSA supports TOPS. 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, age 4-19, who has a mental or physical disability. Our goal is to enable the thousands of young athletes with disabilities to become valued and successful member of the US Youth Soccer family.
TOPS was formed to perpetuate the US Youth Soccer mission statement, which is "to foster the physical, mental and emotional growth and development of all of America's youth through the sport of soccer at all ages and levels of competition." There are thousands of children with disabilities who need, and can be provided with, the opportunity to play soccer through this program.
