NEW Special Needs Soccer Program Coming Spring 2019

TOPSoccer is a community based training and team placement program for young athletes with disabilities. The program is designed to bring the opportunity of learning and playing soccer to any child with special needs. The emphasis of this program is on development, training, and meaningful participation rather than on competition.  The goal is to enable young athletes with disabilities to develop their physical fitness, technical skills, courage, and self-esteem, through the joy and excitement of playing soccer.

This TOPSoccer pilot program will be available for any Cranford child age 7 -13 that has a physical or mental disability.  Each child will be teamed up with one to two TOPSoccer buddies.  These buddies are volunteers (12 years and older) from the community.  Buddies participate with TOPSoccer players to enable player participation. 

The pilot program will be for 5 weeks starting in April. Each session will be 50 minutes.   The first step is to fill two important positions. 

TOPSoccer Coach- This is a paid position.  We are looking for an individual who has experience working with children with special needs and some soccer experience.  The coach would be responsible for planning and providing soccer training and activities each week. Training will be provided.

TOPSoccer Lead Buddy -This is a volunteer position.  We are looking for an individual 18 years or older who can manage volunteers and help facilitate the daily program. Training will be provided.

If you are interested in these positions or finding out more information please contact Diane Cruz at [email protected]

Signups for athletes and buddies will take place in February.
