Bringing the joy and excitement of the game of soccer to young athletes with physical, developmental, and/or emotional challenges.
The Holden Youth Soccer TOPSoccer Program is a program for children with special needs. Children who live in the Central Massachusetts area, and are between the ages of 5 and 14, are eligible to become TOPSoccer athletes.
TOPSoccer is a volunteer-driven, community-based program that brings the game of soccer into the lives of these wonderful children who might not otherwise have an opportunity to play. TOPSoccer athletes are given the opportunity to experience, enjoy, and play the game of soccer in a modified version that is specifically designed to help build a feeling of individual confidence and success.
The program sessions are held for one hour per week. Volunteer groups of trained coaches (Ages 15 & older) serve as one-on-one facilitators to each TOPSoccer athlete. Athletes participate in soccer-specific activities that help them to experience a sense of personal achievement.
The TOPSoccer Program has both fall and spring seasons. Look for online registration dates and season dates on the Holden Youth Soccer home page in August (fall season) and March (spring season). For questions and more information, please contact Osman Bilsel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
