Learn-to-Play Soccer Program

Program Overview

NEW for Spring & Fall 2020, TOP Sports is proud to launch our Learn-to-Play soccer program every Saturday morning at Bishop Strachan School. This program will offer teams to players age 5-7 (2013's-2015's) and will combine a skills development program with weekly gameplay against other TOP Soccer teams. 


What makes us different?


We believe in a well-rounded approach to helping your kids develop on and off the field. We structure our practices so that players are placed into small groups rotating through stations focusing on individual skills, technical instruction, and game-based learning. We believe our small group format is essential for kids to get individual feedback, quality coaching, and high level engagement. We believe that the values learned from team sports (discipline, accountability, and leadership), are ones that will transcend well beyond sport, and we aim to build those values from day one. We will push your kids to get better by creating a fun, engaging, and disciplined environment conducive to learning, and will always have your child's best interests at heart.
