About TOPSoccer



About Valley AFC TOPSoccer

TOPSoccer stands for The Outreach Program for Soccer.

TOPSoccer is a community-based program affiliated nationally with US Youth Soccer and locally with the Virginia Youth Soccer Association (VYSA) that is designed to meet the needs of athletes with physical, developmental, and/or intellectual disabilities.  Player participation and development are key elements of the program as players are placed on teams according to ability and not by age.  TOPSoccer is designed to improve the overall fitness, self-esteem and social skills of your child.

TOPSoccer provides affordable opportunities and one-on-one assistance is available for those who are in need of it. TOPSoccer is an opportunity for the soccer community to come together and make a difference in the lives of all participants.  The ultimate goal is to enable local athletes with disabilities to be valued and successful members of Valley AFC.

Volunteering with Valley AFC TOPSoccer

TOPSoccer programs are entirely dependent upon the power provided by volunteers. Volunteering brings more awareness and understanding to the special needs community. You can even receive community service hours by helping out a TOPSoccer program. But beyond the service hours, TOPSoccer is an opportunity to give your best by making a difference. It could be assisting on the pitch with soccer skills or just being a friend and cheerleader.

TOPSoccer relies heavily on help provided by "buddies." Anyone can be a TOPSoccer Buddy: a same-aged peer, a teenager or an adult. It doesn’t even matter if you have soccer experience. If you want to give back to your community and help this vastly under-served part of our population get the chance to participate in soccer, TOPSoccer is the place for you. 

If you want to take it a step further, why not become a coach?
