Triangle United and students from UNC-Chapel Hill will begin a TOPSoccer program in the fall of 2019. More information will be coming in regards to how to sign up a participant or as a 'buddy'.
TOPSoccer (The Outreach Program for Soccer) is a community-based training program designed to foster the physical, mental and emotional growth and development of America's youth through the sport of soccer at all levels of age and competition, organized by volunteers. The program is designed to bring the opportunity of learning and playing soccer to any young individual who has a developmental or intellectual disability.
Our goal is to enable young athletes with disabilities to become valued and successful members of the US Youth Soccer family. Through weekly training sessions, volunteers will cultivate relationships with the local youth special needs community through soccer. Sessions will include team building and player development exercises emphasizing the importance of fun and personal growth.
