US Youth Soccer TOPSoccer (The Outreach Program for Soccer) is a community-based training and team placement program for young athletes with disabilities, organized by youth soccer association volunteers. The program is designed to bring the opportunity of learning and playing soccer to any boy or girl, ages 4-19, who has a mental or physical disability. Our goal is to enable the thousands of young athletes with disabilities to become valued and successful members of the US YOUTH SOCCER family.
Space Coast United won FYSA's TOPSoccer Club of the Year and TOPSoccer Buddy (Ryan Zinone) award at the annual general meeting in August 2014. We won TOPSoccer Buddy of the Year (Kala Neighbor) at the 2015 meeting. We are very proud of our excellent program and excited to begin a new year. We welcome boys and girls, age 4 and up, who have a mental or physical disability to be part of this fantastic and self fulfilling program.
