TOPS (special needs program) completed their Spring season on Saturday at Bear Branch Soccer Complex sponsored by Woodforest National Bank. TOPS is a program designed to give the opportunity of learning and playing soccer to any boy or girl, ages 4 and up, who has a mental or physical disability. TOPS purpose is to foster physical, mental, emotional growth and development for children with mental and physical challenges through the game of soccer. The game is modified to fit the needs of the players; everyone plays at his/her level. The ‘rules of the game’ are loosely applied, and the game is played for pure enjoyment.
“We had a great season. TOPS soccer was my favorite part of my weekends and I’m going to miss it when I go off to college this year!” Sophia DeMarco, TOPS Coordinator.
