Developed by US Youth Soccer, TOPSoccer provides an opportunity for those with diverse abilities to play the game in a structured environment that is safe, fun, supportive and inclusive.

“TOPSoccer is designed to bring the opportunity of learning and playing soccer to any boy or girl with a disability,” said Josh Krusewski, Executive Director of the Connecticut Junior Soccer Association. “The goal of TOPSoccer is to enable these young athletes to develop their physical fitness, technical skills, courage and self-esteem through the joy and excitement of playing soccer.”

Soccer for Young Athletes with Disabilities

West Hartford TOPSoccer is a community-based soccer training program for young athletes with disabilities. The program gives boys and girls, ages 5-18, with physical or intellectual disabilities the opportunity to experience being a part of a soccer team.
Our athletes are paired with volunteer "buddies" from area high schools and travel soccer teams.
Athletes learn basic skills and participate in friendly soccer games with players of similar abilities. Activities are adapted to ensure that every athlete is able to play.
The West Hartford TOPSoccer fall season begins in September and runs through the beginning of November.
