Toledo TOPSoccer is a dynamic program for any athlete facing special cognitive, physical and/or emotional challenges, allowing them to experience the game of soccer along with other players in their peer group. Participants of TOPSoccer may include but are not limited to children/adults who are blind, amputees, confined to a wheelchair, emotionally/mentally challenged, children/adults with autism, as well as children/adults with Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, or other conditions that impair mobility, strength, and/or comprehension.

TOPSoccer integrates its participants by using current TFA and non-TFA players, friends and family as “Teammates” to help the participants both on and off the field as needed during TOPSoccer events.

TOPSoccer participants are placed in groups, organized by size, agility, mobility, the ability to follow directions, and lastly by age. The unique benefit to TOPSoccer is no upper age limit and participants may register as young as 5 years old.

Parents who may have thought they would never see their children with different abilities playing a sport or enjoying the social opportunities created through sports, get exactly that with TOPSoccer. Parents are able to relax and enjoy watching their children/adults having fun like their siblings or other children involved in TFA and the game of soccer.

We are incredibly fortunate to have key licensed professionals in the fields of Special Education, Clinical Psychology, Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy to work alongside our TFA Coaches and Teammates to make this program a win-win for all involved.
