TOPSSoccer Program for Kids with Special Needs

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.

Games are played on Saturdays, without practices, during the fall and spring soccer season. (See schedule for specific game days.)
Registration for TOPS Fall 2014 is Open!
Fall 2014 Game Schedule – TBA
Games are held at Bear Branch on the following Saturdays:

  • Younger teams (ages 4 to Jr. high) – TBA
  • Older teams (High school to young adult) – TBA

For more information on registering your child or if you would like to volunteer contact Kathy Schneider at or call 281-298-9446.

TOPS is always looking for volunteers to assist these players on the field:

We need ‘buddy’ volunteers who can help them learn to play soccer and help them have fun. NO special training is needed, just a desire to help. Many of the buddies over the past 3 years could only commit to a few Saturday morning games due to other commitments (soccer games, etc.). This has worked well and all help is appreciated, especially by the kids and their parents.
