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.

TOPSoccer Schedule

Parents, players and volunteers,

 

Good afternoon! I hope everyone has remained safe and healthy during this pandemic. It broke my heart to have to cancel the Spring season of Clawson TOPSoccer, but it was necessary given everything that was going on. The past few months, Janet and I have been working hard to put together a plan for the Fall season. Regretfully, after much deliberation, I’ve had to make the difficult decision to once again cancel the upcoming season.

 

The health and safety of all involved with the program is our main concern. Despite our best efforts, we could not come up with a way to make a season work that would be safe and entertaining for the players. I’ve spoken with Dianna Dykstra, the Michigan MSYSA TOPSoccer chair, and she fully supports my decision given the current situation and restrictions being put in place. She told me that she’s going to be speaking with other programs who are likely going to be following our lead.

 

In place of a Fall season, more emphasis will be placed on adding content to our Clawson TOPSoccer Facebook page. It’s my hope that we can add drills, and other fun things for our players to work on while we wait out this pandemic. I understand that this is not for everyone, but we don’t want to lose the connection we’ve built with our players. I hope you all will check out the page.

 

I thank you all for your understanding and want you all to know that this wasn’t an easy decision. This program means so much to us and we miss seeing all of the smiling faces week in and week out.

 

Stay safe out there!

 

Regards,

Shaun Ervin

Clawson TOPSoccer Director

What is TOPSoccer?

The Outreach Program for Soccer or TOPSoccer is a community-based program that allows people with special needs to learn and enjoy the game of soccer.

How Does It Work?

Players will meet once a week throughout the season for practice showcasing their skills at "The Big Game". 

Clawson Soccer coaches and volunteers will work with the players and help them develop their skills during weekly 45 minute training sessions that they can then show off during a 30 minute scrimmage at what has become known as "The Big Game".   

What Does It Cost?

Just $25 which helps cover the uniform and insurance costs.

How Do I Sign Up?

Registration will be online and runs at the same time as open registration for recreational soccer.  There are two seasons each year, spring and fall, that run roughly the same time as the recreational season.

How Can I Help?

Being a volunteer driven program, we can not do this without some help and we need lots of it.  No experience is necessary, just a desire to help out.  Please contact Shaun Ervin (topsoccer@clawson-soccer.org).
