This is your TOPSoccer Corner where Virginia and DC clubs and leagues exchange TOPSoccer ideas, provide information, and answer each other’s questions.
Wherever soccer programs for athletes with disabilities have been implemented, they have proven to be one of the most popular physical activities for these athletes -- these kids LOVE soccer! And coaching them is one of the most satisfying experiences a soccer coach can have.
IF YOU ALREADY HAVE A PROGRAM, share your experiences with fellow clubs. In addition to a description of what you’re doing, folks will be especially interested in how you got started and what problems you faced. Send me an email or letter , and we’ll let others know what you’re doing.
We also need to get an information exchange going -- we can all benefit by sharing each other’s experience. So check out the following pages -- and if your questions aren’t answered, send us a note -- we’ll get the answer.
