TOPS Challenger League
Welcome to the Norwood Youth Soccer TOPS Challenger Program. We are affiliated with the US Youth Soccer TOPS (The Outreach Program for Soccer), which is a community based soccer program designed to meet the needs of players with physical and/or mental challenges. Soccer is truly a sport for all children. If your player is not able to participate in the NYS Intramural or Travel programs, we offer the TOPS Challenger program which is designed to provide an opportunity to learn and play soccer in a safe, non-threatening environment. It is for players of all abilities aged 5-21 years.
We will be entering our 6th season of Challenger Soccer in the Fall of 2013 and it is encouraging to see how much the players learn and grow from season to season. There is no Challenger Soccer in the Spring season. This past Fall 2012 we had over 35 participants. We have a mini-league for our older players which includes teams from Stoughton and Newton, which was started last year and has grown in success. We have both home and away games with these other TOPS/Challenger Towns.
We also welcome any teens looking for volunteer hours to assist, especially with our younger players, but you must be prepared to commit to the whole season.
