TOPSoccer (The Outreach Program for Soccer) is a soccer program for children with special needs. Our goal is to bring the opportunity of learning and playing soccer to any boy or girl in a safe and secure environment. For additional information visit:

 The program is inclusive for children 5 to 14 years old regardless of disability. TOPSoccer is a recognized program within the US Youth Soccer Association and the Michigan State Youth Soccer Association. 

Chippewas TOPSoccer is FREE OF CHARGE to the players. Players only need to provide their own footwear, shin-guards, and socks.

All that is required to participate as a player is to complete the registration and show up. For more information, please visit

Please register at; there is no fee.   Additional forms, CMU concussion & CMU waiver, will need to be completed prior to participating.

There are three key people in a TOPSoccer session:

  • Coach – leads activities

  • Player – child with special needs

  • Buddy – the person who assists the Player with activities as needed

The players come to sessions lead by coaches from CMU Soccer Academy where they work on soccer skills in a safe, positive environment. The players are paired with a buddy who will assist them in following the directions of the coach.  Player ability varies widely and drills are modified to match their skills.  Activities are paced to accommodate the players and the emphasis is always on positive reinforcement and encouragement.
