TOPSoccer Chair: John Schlenker 

TOPSoccer Programs in Virginia are sponsored by the Virginia Youth Soccer Association and are affiliated with United States Youth Soccer. The Outreach Program for Soccer is a community-based training and team placement program for young athletes with disabilities organized by VYSA member clubs and volunteers.
The programs are designed to bring the enjoyment of learning and playing soccer to boys and girls who have a mental or physical disability.

VYSA is committed to the development of new TOPSoccer programs and the enhancement of current programs. There are many children who deserve the right to enjoy soccer but are left with no place to play within the traditional system. It is our mission to help youth of all backgrounds to enjoy the beautiful game!

“Every child who wishes to play soccer deserves the right to participate!”
