About Topsoccer

US Youth Soccer TOPSoccer (The Outreach Program for Soccer) is a community-based training program for all athletes with intellectual, emotional, and or physical disabilities. The program strives to provide soccer opportunities for players to develop independence at their own pace in a safe, fun, and supportive/inclusive environment.

The Eastside Timbers' TOPSoccer Program serves athletes with disabilities in our community. We provide the opportunity to access the amazing sport of soccer, regardless of ability, supported by the Oregon Youth Soccer Association (OYSA). Our inclusive service is provided by an experienced coaching staff and volunteer buddies for one-on-one mentorship. Adaptive equipment and ability-based sessions are just some of the ways our program meets the needs of our athletes. We offer nine-week seasons during the Fall and Spring, as well week-long Summer and Winter camps. TOPSoccer works to keep the cost low for every athlete. Donations are accepted and 100% of the donation goes towards facility rentals, equipment, athlete scholarships, and more!

TOPSoccer Spring Session

TOPSoccer will be hosting two opportunities for players this Spring. The first are two ability-based in-person sessions. Here's what you need to know:

-Limited number of spots for in-person sessions 

-Face-coverings are required of all in-person participants

-Players needing one-to-one support (a.k.a. a buddy) will need to provide their own

This doesn't work for you? No problem! TOPS is also hosting a virtual session for players who are not ready for in-person play.

In order to learn more and sign-up as a player, you must read through the "Return to Play" guidelines. You will find all of the links you need to register as well as information about what to expect in the coming season. All player registrants will also be asked to complete an updated medical form, regardless of the format they choose..

We are hosting a Q&A session on March 15 from 5:00 to 6:00 PM via Zoom for players, volunteers, and other stakeholders with questions about the upcoming season.

Listed below you will find the tentative schedule for in-person and virtual.
