The Outreach Program for Soccer (TOPSoccer) is a community-based skill-building and physical fitness program for young athletes of all abilities, organized by the Norwalk Junior Soccer Association. The program is designed to bring the opportunity for learning and playing soccer to any boy or girl age 5-21 with challenges, requiring individualized modifications and program support to ensure success. This program includes socialization and positive self-esteem at the forefront!
Dawn DiNoto supervises the program and is responsible for coordination of mentors and activities. Our players range in ages from 5 years to completion of High School. We include training from qualified soccer athletic professionals for some weeks in our season with small group and individualized instruction.
Parents or guardians need to be present at the field and are welcome to play soccer with us. We provide mentors for the players and welcome students age 12 and older for this rewarding volunteer opportunity.
The sessions last an hour and they are being played this year at Tracey School on Saturdays. All activities are modified as needed to ensure full participation of all players. Each season includes community activity as a group with parent participation and a trophy ceremony. We are proud to participate in the Annual Norwalk Memorial Parade.
Please contact Dawn Di Noto at to arrange to stop by and sign up to play and mentor. Questions regarding your player’s needs may also be directed to Dawn.
