About TOPSoccer

TOPSoccer is national, community based soccer training program for young athletes with disabilities. 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. The New Jersey Youth Soccer / US Youth Soccer TOPSoccer program provides affiliated organizations, such as Morris United Soccer Club, with ways to enable players with mental or physical disabilities to play soccer. The emphasis of this program is on development, training, and meaningful participation rather than on competition.

The Morris United TOPSoccer program is established for local players who are either physically and/or mentally challenged and aged 5-17 years of age. The goal of the Morris United Soccer Club TOPSoccer program is to provide these athletes a program that develops their physical fitness, technical skills, courage, and self-esteem, through the joy and excitement of playing soccer.  The program perpetuates the mission of MUSC "to provide youth with opportunities to grow as players at a level and speed commensurate with their ability and commitment to the game."
