AUBURNDALE, FL (December 10, 2021) - Part of Florida Youth Soccer's vision is to develop soccer opportunities for all. No program encapsulates this more than TOPSoccer.
TOPSoccer (TOPS) is a recreational sports program for children and adults with intellectual, emotional, or physical disabilities that is offered only through local USYS-affiliated soccer clubs. TOPSoccer programs provide our members with opportunities to play soccer in a uniquely structured environment that is safe, fun, supportive, and inclusive.
On December 4, FYSA held its inaugural TOPSoccer Festival with the Tampa Bay Rowdies at Al Lang Stadium. This new event looked to expand the public's knowledge of TOPS programs around the state and encourage interested athletes to participate in this fun and inclusive event.
This first-time event was a success with over forty-three (43) athletes from all over the state and forty (40) volunteers that participated and even had a few special guest appearances from Pete the Pelican and Raymond the Seadog.
Thank you to the Tampa Bay Rowdies, Tampa Bay Rays, Publix, and all the amazing volunteers who helped make this event possible! Together we can make a difference and ensure that soccer remains the game for everyone. #SoccerForALL
