Arlington Soccer Club is pleased to announce that registration for the Spring 2023 TOPSoccer program will open on March 20th . TOPSoccer is a recreational soccer program for players with disabilities or differences. The Spring TOPSoccer season includes 6 weekly sessions and will continue to be offered free of charge. Details are as follows:
The ASC TOPSoccer program is for children and youth ages 5-20 who would benefit from a soccer environment adapted to players with intellectual, emotional, or physical disabilities or differences. Family/caregiver participation is welcomed but not expected. Participants do not need to reside in Arlington or attend school in Arlington.
TOPSoccer sessions have a very flexible format. No soccer playing experience is necessary. There are various supervised activity stations that allow players to develop soccer skills at their own pace. Some players engage in friendly scrimmages, while others prefer more individual play. Our goal is to create a low-pressure, safe space for players to explore soccer in their own way. We provide adaptive soccer equipment (e.g. audible balls, weighted balls, oversized balls, etc) to accommodate a range of preferences or needs.
Sessions will be held on an accessible field in Arlington at 3:30-4:30pm on the following Sundays: April 30, May 7, May 14, May 21, June 4, and June 11.
Registration is required, and space is limited to 40 participants to ensure a positive experience for everyone. Registration is offered first-come, first-serve. If the program is capped by the time you register, your name will be added to the waitlist. Waitlisted players are accepted to the program if space and resources allow. Registration can be completed at the following link: https://secure.adminsports.net/arlingtonmasoccer. Please be sure to select ‘Spring 2023 TOPSoccer’ when you register.
ASC is excited to continue its efforts at improving access to soccer for everyone in our community. This message may be forwarded to anyone who you think might be interested in participating in or learning more about ASC’s TOPSoccer program.
Please note: TOPSoccer buddy registration will be announced separately.
