We here at Water Cities believe all kids should have the opportunity to play and be a part of a team. We do this by providing a select program linked to the Recreational program run by our partners at Oshkosh Youth Soccer.
We took this one step further in 2016 partnering again with the Oshkosh Youth Soccer Club and also the Oshkosh YMCA to bring the US Youth Soccer TOPSoccer program to the greater Oshkosh area.
This program has been nothing short of an eye opener for us. Many times we get lost in the numbers of players we have in our club and forget that so many have never had the chance to be part of a team or even a sport. We look forward to helping bring this program to our community for years to come.
We had a young player tell us in her own words why she feels volunteering for TOPSoccer was such a great experience for her.
We are so thankful to be able to make this program available for not only the special needs athletes but also for our players. So much of youth sports is focused on skill development and paying more money to have this coach or that coach. We of course strive to help our players achieve their goals on the field. However, at the end of the day it is really about the youth we serve and how we can help them become well rounded young adults.
Lets call it the "Water Cities Difference" Be sure to get involved!
US Youth Soccer TOPSoccer (The Outreach Program for Soccer) is a community-based training and team placement program for young athletes with disabilities, organized by youth soccer association volunteers. The program is designed to bring the opportunity of learning and playing soccer to any boy or girl, who has a mental or physical disability. Our goal is to enable the thousands of young athletes with disabilities to become valued and successful members of the US Youth Soccer family.
Our 2016 Winter Session is complete, we are currently beginning to plan a summer session for 2016. Please check back for more information soon.
