Donate to the TOPSoccer Program!
TOPSoccer is The community-based Outreach Program for Soccer also known as “The Opportunity to Play Soccer.” This is recreational soccer for children who cannot play in a traditional recreational soccer program because they are disabled, developmentally delayed, or have special needs. Children are provided the opportunity to participate in an athletic league that provides them with an extraordinary experience. TOPSoccer is open for children ages 5-19.
For the parents of our players, TOPSoccer provides an opportunity for their kids to socialize and learn new skills and gain confidence as they compete against themselves with the assistance of volunteer “Buddies” in a variety of specially tailored activities. The program also provides parents time to simply watch their child participate in the sport and interact with their Buddy.
The TOPSoccer program is 100% free of charge to families with special needs children. The exorbitant medical expenses that families incur often prohibit them from having the ability to enroll their child in extracurricular activities. Your generous donations to TOPSoccer fully underwrite the cost of uniforms, trophies, equipment, photos, water, special character guest appearances and events for the kids. Coaches, Buddies and staff are all volunteers. The “Buddy System” provides a minimum of one Buddy to assist each player. The Buddies in the JTAA TOPS program are teenagers who volunteer their time.
We are proud to continue to offer the overwhelmingly successful US Youth Soccer initiative TOPSoccer program here in Jupiter. Whether you have a special needs child at home, or maybe another family member does, or neighbor, friend, co-worker, or anyone you may know, we need volunteer parents to help. This is a fantastic program that we are happy to support, and with the help of FYSA (Florida Youth Soccer Association), US Youth Soccer, JTAA, the Town of Jupiter, and sponsors, this program can always remain FREE for our families.
Please let us know if you are able to help on the administrative or organizational side. Note also that we are always looking for Players ages 5-19, and Buddies ages 13-19.
Please help us keep this program free for families in need. There are several sponsorship opportunities available:
