Berks soccer program makes special impact

TOP Soccer

BOYERTOWN, Pa. - Everyone is part of the game at the TOP Soccer program in Boyertown, Berks County.

In its 12th year, the TOP program pairs local high school and junior high soccer players with kids in the community who have special needs. Players from the Boyertown Area School District, as well as players from within the Boyertown Soccer Club, volunteer as buddies for the program.

They play soccer on Saturday mornings, and it's completely free.

"We spend eight weeks teaching these children who are otherwise not able to play soccer in a soccer team," said organizer Sue Seanor.

The special needs children range from 4 to 16 years old.

Organizers of the program say they're always looking for more people to get involved.

TOP is short for The Outreach Program for Soccer. The mission of the program is to "foster the physical, mental, and emotional growth and development of Americas youth through the sport of soccer at all levels of age and competition."
