CBAA TOPSoccer (Adaptive Needs) Ages 5+

Celebrating over 11 years in Bucks County!

UpdatedWednesday September 2, 2020 byOffice.

***Due to the current return-to-play guidelines in place, we will not be holding a Fall TOPSoccer season. We will continue to monitor the situation and update as necessary.

What Is TOPSoccer?

TOPSoccer, or The Outreach Program for Soccer, is a nationally run organization under the U.S. Youth Soccer organization. It helps get soccer programs for children with physical or intellectual disabilities started in communities.  This program adapts to the needs of each individual and allows each child to gain experience in a team sport in a non-competitive environment. We are proud of our 1:1 player to buddy and coach!  

The CBAA TOPSoccer program is offered to children from age 5 years old and up. The program consists of weekly one-hour sessions that provide a fun learning environment in which the players can develop soccer-related skills, learn how to play within a team, and build self-confidence in a positive and nurturing environment. 

All sessions include fun soccer related activities, shooting skills, and drills as well as fun soccer matches.

CBAA offers two TOPSoccer sessions – Fall and Spring.

  • Saturday Morning outdoor sessions at Holicong park
  • 10am - 11am
  • Registration is free and includes a uniform! (Uniform can be re-used each season)
  • Ages 5 and Up
  • Fall Season: September - November (Fall season on hold until further notice)
  • Spring Season: April - June
  • Sessions are led by licensed, skilled soccer trainers and certified teachers
  • Buddy Classroom Training 1 week prior to player season start - all must attend to be eligible for the season

- Autism
- Down Syndrome
- Muscular Dystrophy

- Sight or Hearing Impaired
- Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

Why should your child participate?

  • The CBAA TOPSoccer athlete will develop a sense of belonging to a community and will learn the value of being part of a team.
  • The athlete will experience an increase in self-esteem, fitness, and social skills.
  • Success is based upon ability!
  • It is going to be a lot of FUN!

TOPSoccer Buddy Program

Volunteer Buddies are essential to make the CBAA TOPSoccer program work.

Buddies are youth coaches who are responsible for leading players at a time as they participate in the activities set up by the coaches and trainers. You must be at least 14 years of age to be a buddy (exceptions are made for buddies who exhibit the necessary maturity). You do not need to have any soccer experience or experience working with adaptive-needs children. CBAA will provide you with training prior to the start of the season as well as on-field training.  [read more here]
If you are 14 years of age or older and would like to help our players learn to play and enjoy soccer, please click HERE to register and apply to coach/volunteer.
