TOPSoccer Registration Takes Place In August

TOPSoccer (The Outreach Program for Soccer) is a community-based training and team placement program for young athletes with disabilities. It is organized by youth soccer association volunteers. The program is designed to bring the opportunity of learning and playing soccer to any boy or girl age 5 and up who has a mental or physical disability.

The goal is to enable young athletes with disabilities to become valued and successful members of Florida Youth Soccer and the US Youth Soccer family.

The program is a ‘relaxed format.’ No practices or keeping score. No standings; games are just fun. There is no cost for the families; the program is corporate and individually sponsored.

The West Florida Flames Soccer League (WFFSL and formerly BAYSL) has sponsored and hosted TOPSoccer since 1996. This season begins at the WFFSL fields on Saturday, September 7 at 9 a.m. and will run through November 16. Registration takes place at the WFFSL clubhouse, 3104 S.
