TOPSoccer is part of a dream for many children who have a disability and a desire to chase a soccer ball and score a GOAL! TOPSoccer (which stands for The Outreach Program for Soccer) is a Fairbanks community-based soccer program for young athletes with physical and mental disabilities. The program provides athletes a safe and fun environment while allowing them the opportunity to participate in an organized sport.
Athletes compete with athletes of similar abilities. Youth players between the ages of 5-19 years old who have a physical or mental disability that limits their ability to perform at the competitive level of play can choose to participate in the TOPSoccer program. Emphasis of this program is on development, training, and providing meaningful participation rather than on competition. Fairbanks TOPSoccer's goal is to enable young athletes with disabilities to become valued and successful members of Alaska.
The TOPSoccer program offers the following:
- Placement of players by ability not age
- Highlight players' ability rather than their disability
- Offers players a meaningful experience, not just a token player
- Offers players ability to achieve desired goals without assistance
- and to have FUN! FUN! FUN!
Come be a part of our dream. The dream where every child who wants to play can compete at his/her own level with players of similar abilities. You can make dreams come true!!! Contact the Fairbanks TOPSoccer Office to learn how you can make a difference.
