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 is Open!


TOPS Season: September 26 – November 7 (no games on October 3)

* All games are held at Bear Branch Sportsfields on Saturdays *

  • Younger teams –  2:00-3:00pm Bear Branch Field 4C 
  • Older teams – 3:00-4:00pm Bear Branch Field 6A

For more information on registering your child and/or volunteering contact Sophia DeMarco at or call 281-298-2180.

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.) and this has worked well. Any and all help is appreciated!
