Statewide TOPSoccer Events sponsored by Virginia Youth Soccer Association
VYSA Annual TOPSoccer Festival
The VYSA TOPSoccer Festival is held each June in conjunction with the Kohl’s Recreational Cup. The site of the cup is Patriot Park in Spotsylvania County. The TOPSoccer Festival is held inside the Ron Rosner Family YMCA adjacent to the park. The air-conditioned facility is a perfect setting. Coaches for the event are approved by the TOPSoccer committee. Those players, buddies and parents that attend have a great time. The festival concludes with a short social.
All VYSA TOPSoccer players and buddies are welcome to attend and participate. Look for the announcement flyer sent to club TOPSoccer administrators for distribution.

The US Youth TOPSoccer Training Course is offered for all administrators, coaches, buddies and other TOPSoccer volunteers. The course content includes:

VYVA TOPSoccer participates in various activities and work with other programs to provide exciting activities for children with special needs. An example was our participation in the Nickelodeon “Day of Play” event held in September of 2011. Day of Play was held inside Ellipse in front of the White House in Washington, DC. Most of the attendees, 90+ players and 90+ buddies, were from Virginia TOPSoccer.
VYSA TOPSoccer representatives attend many awareness seminars and workshops across Virginia providing a display station and an opportunity to speak with a VYSA TOPSoccer representative. Families gather information about TOPSoccer and obtain contact information for a club program nearest their home.
