Program Overview

The Outreach Program for Soccer for kids with special needs…

TOPSoccer is an Outreach Program for soccer sponsored by  Elk Grove Soccer and US Youth Soccer  that have worked together to bring you this community-based soccer program for children with physical, social, mental or emotional challenges. By teaming up children with Coaches and Buddies, the TOPSoccer program aims to provide an enriching and fun program for all of the children and families we serve. We will teach valuable soccer and life skills and build community and inclusiveness through soccer!!


Any child 5 and up who would like to learn the beautiful game of soccer or improve their current soccer skills, for whom a typical soccer recreational program would not have enough support or the right structure to meet their needs. Participants may have varied physical, mental or social-emotional special needs; The TOPSoccer program aims to provide that specific focus and one-on-one help to those children so that they can individually benefit in the best possible way. 


Kids in 7th-12th grade who have an interest in being a Buddy can volunteer.  A joy to play soccer with others and an openness to learn about a person different from yourself are all the prerequisites you need!  Anyone can be a TOPSoccer Buddy: parents, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles or friends. No soccer experience necessary. 

If you are interested in being a Buddy please email

Please note that we will be taking every precaution and safety measure to keep your players and families safe by strictly following CDC  safety guidelines.

Frequently asked questions


If we have missed any, please feel free to contact us!

We allow our players to stay with the same coach each year. Again, it all depends upon who registers timely.  Players who register late will be placed on teams that have space.  One of the exceptions would be if your team in the past, was a mixed of younger and older players, and your coach decides to coach the younger age group.  The older age children could not play with that team because they would be too old.  Players can play up, but they cannot play down into a younger age group.

Yes. Elk Grove Soccer this year will create teams in all age groups, without skipping years.  We hope this will avoid the concerns about players playing up an age group.  U6, U7, U8 U9, U10, U11, U12, U13, U14, and U15 will all be created within each of our territory clubs.  Ages U16 and up will play with our Elk Grove Recreation Community Club. The only exception will be is those instances in which we don’t have enough diverse teams in one age group; it may force us to push teams to the higher age group as we have in the past.  Given the number of teams we have, however, that is not anticipated.

Each year, it’s not usual for a coach not to return for a variety of reasons.  The players, however can stay together if they so desire.  Our club managers and coaching coordinators are working diligently to find coaches to replace those coaches who are not returning. 

If this is your first time playing at Elk Grove Soccer and you do not have a uniform, you need to purchase a uniform to play in games. As you move through the age groups, you only have to buy a uniform if your uniform from last year doesn’t fit. Our players can use that uniform until they outgrow it. They can buy a new one from us or trade with their friends easily due to the fact that we have branded our uniforms and logo throughout Elk Grove with the same home and away kits.  To purchase a new uniform and pay, go to –
