What is TOPSoccer?

PYSL TOPSoccer (The Outreach Program for Soccer) is a community-based soccer program for young athletes with special needs, organized by youth soccer association volunteers. TOPSoccer provides a safe and active environment for players who are challenged by the demands of traditional soccer, while offering an enriching experience for youth volunteers.

TOPS FAMILY NIGHT WITH SACRAMENTO GOLD 

 Come enjoy the last semi-pro match of the season: Sacramento Gold vs. East Bay Stompers! 

Tell them you're with TOPS for free admission for your entire family. Show your team pride by wearing your t-shirt, uniform, or Buddy shirt and join the teams on the field after the match for photo ops and other fun activities. 

Please RSVP for this free event: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0545aaaa2daaf58-topsoccer

 


The Program

Our program is designed to provide a fun and meaningful experience for the family, while also improving the overall fitness, self-esteem, and social skills of the child athlete in a safe and caring environment. Incorporating a "Buddy" system, each event offers pairing a player with a volunteer partner. TOPSoccer also provides parents the opportunity to network with other families for support and information sharing.

Player Registration

TOPSoccer players are registered as a recreational soccer team within the Placer Youth Soccer League. We welcome players of all abilities, age 4 and older. If you missed our seasonal Registration Night, paperwork can still be completed (download, print, with adult signature) and will be collected at your first play date, along with the $15 registration fee (for Spring or Fall). A soccer uniform will be ordered upon receipt of your registration, and is included in the cost.

Files you will need: TWO copies of the Player Registration Form, one Player Information Sheet, and one Concussion Awareness form per Player. All forms can all be found at the bottom of the Downloads Page under TOPSoccer. Cash or Checks payable to: "TOPSoccer" (sorry, we do no accept credit cards).

Let us know you are coming! CLICK HERE to RSVP as a PLAYER for any (or all) of our upcoming play dates!

Visit our Facebook page to follow our program updates and communications, or just come out to a play date and give it a try without further obligation. Please contact us with any questions or concerns at TopSoccer@GraniteBayFC.com 

Volunteer Buddies

TOPSoccer welcomes youth volunteer Buddies (under age 18) to help at play dates. No prior experience with soccer or working with special needs children is necessary, just a positive attitude and a sincere interest in working with our players. If you missed our seasonal Buddy Training, paperwork can still be completed (download, print, with an adult signature) and will be collected at your first play date.

Files you will need: one Buddy Liability Waiver and one Concussion Awareness form per Buddy. Remember, they MUST be signed by a parent or guardian. The forms can be found at the bottom of the Downloads Page under TOPSoccer.

All volunteer Buddies should arrive 15 minutes prior to the play date and NEW Buddies should arrive 20-30 minutes early for the first time, for a quick orientation. We offer advancement to higher levels of responsibility for dedicated and returning Buddies, such as Mentor Buddies, Setup Crew, and Registration Team. We also track and sign off community service hours for student volunteers, so don't forget to Sign In at each event!

Let us know you are coming! CLICK HERE to RSVP as a BUDDY for any (or all) of our upcoming play dates!

Volunteer Coaches and Adult Volunteers

We need 3-6 Licensed PYSL Coaches at each play date. Please contact the Managing Director at TopSoccer@GraniteBayFC.com for more information.

Other (non-coaching) adult volunteers over 18 are also invited to help support program needs. Please contact the Managing Director at TopSoccer@GraniteBayFC.com for more information.
