The Winston Salem branch of TOPSoccer is indeed different from those at other soccer clubs. This is largely due to the fact that our Student Leadership Team, made up of teens in the community, is in charge of virtually all of the happenings within the program. With the help of adult advisors, the Student Leadership Team is behind everything that goes on at TOPSoccer.
Another way that we are different lies in the approach that the Student Leadership Team has taken towards the sessions every Sunday. Instead of being modeled as a soccer practice, our TOPSoccer sessions resemble a “field day”, in which Buddies and Athletes are encouraged to enjoy any activity that they may choose. We feel that this makes the program much more inclusive towards those who do not wish to play soccer, however we of course have a slew of soccer balls and goals for Athletes and Buddies to use if they so choose.
