UDFC’s TOPSoccer (The Outreach Program for Soccer) is designed to meet the needs of children and young adults that have physical and/or intellectual disabilities who want to participate in the game of Soccer. The program is focused on player development and the enjoyment of the game rather than competition.
The UDFC program is open, at no cost, to any player 5 to 19 years old with a disability. Disabilities might include: Autism, Down Syndrome, Muscular Dystrophy, Cerebral Palsy, Sight or Hearing Impaired, Traumatic Brain Injury
The 6 session season runs September through October. No program Columbus Day Weekend.
The 90 minute sessions are held Saturday mornings at the Upper Darby High School Stadium.
A player’s placement in smaller groups within the program is based on their ability and not the player’s age.
The program is directed by a TOPSoccer Certified Coach/Trainer, and assisted by UDFC and UD High School soccer players.
All players are provided with a uniform and soccer ball.
Players must provide their own shin guards and soccer cleats or sneakers.
All Players receive recognition of participation at the completion of the season.
