TOPSoccer (Fall Only Program)

Welcome to the TopSoccer Program at Special Olympics Maryland – Montgomery County! Our program is dedicated to providing a unique and inclusive soccer experience for athletes of all abilities. TopSoccer (The Outreach Program for Soccer) is specially designed to bring the joy of soccer to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

All teams will train with a set roster for competition in qualifiers and state games. The teams travel throughout the state for competitions. There will be at least 1 qualifier requiring travel.  Athletes must commit to participating in all practices and qualifiers. Coaches will assign athletes to teams based on ability.

Join us for a season filled with fun, friendship, and fitness. Our sessions focus on skill development, teamwork, and, most importantly, having a great time on the field. We believe in the power of sports to foster inclusion, promote physical activity, and enhance the overall well-being of our athletes.

Come be a part of our TopSoccer community and discover the joy of soccer in a welcoming and inclusive setting. For more information and to register, please visit our website or contact us directly. Let’s kick off an amazing soccer season together!
