The Outreach Program for Soccer (TOPSoccer)
TOPSoccer is a community-based training and team placement program for young athletes with disabilities, developed by US Youth Soccer and offered by KPSA. The program is designed to bring the opportunity of learning and playing soccer to any boy or girl, ages 4-19, who has an intellectual or physical disability.
We launched our first program in the Spring of 2009 with sessions on Sundays from April 10 to May 22. Since then we've grown our program season over season.
Lisa Kellett, MYSA Volunteer of the Year
Lisa Kellett, past president of the King Philip Soccer Association, was named the 2012 Volunteer of the Year by the Massachusetts Youth Soccer Association. Mrs. Kellett, who resides in Norfolk and was a long-time youth coach, player, and board member of KPSA, was recognized for her efforts to launch The Outreach Program for Soccer (TOPSoccer). Recognizing the need, Mrs. Kellett led the effort to bring TOPSoccer to Norfolk, Plainville, and Wrentham, and secured the help of both youth and adult volunteers. Today KPSA's TOPSoccer has more than 40 players and more than 50 volunteers who work with the players on Sunday mornings.
John Rainone, TOPSoccer Coach of the Year
John Rainone has been on the King Philip Soccer Board of Directors for over 10 years and served as Treasurer for 4 years. John was also able to coach both of his daughters in King Philip and Plainville Youth Soccer programs.
He has been involved with the TOPSoccer program since 2009. With John's involvement over the years, the program has continued to grow and improve. TOPSoccer has a strong core group of volunteers and players which allows them to continue to grow the program year after year. John and his fellow coaches' main focus is to ensure that each and every player within the program is having fun and learning.
