North Reading Youth Soccer

Update

We continue to recruit players, coaches and Buddies for the program.  Over the course of the  five years since we started running TOPs  we've served a combined 320+ athletes - and we believe the program has plenty of room to grow! 

We are always looking to expand our buddy roster and can always use the extra support of any coaches looking to get involved as well.  If you or someone you know has a particular expertise please reach out as we look to further the success of our youth athletes. 

If you want more information beyond what we provide throughout the website please contact the Program Director Pam McIntyre at [email protected].

Again, If you are interested in coaching or volunteering as a Buddy, please see the Coaches or Buddy sections of the TOPS Program for more information.

If you know of anyone interested in sponsoring the program, please let us know, and above all else, spread the word!!!

NRYS TOPSoccer Celebrates
its 10th Season This Spring!


TOPSoccer (The Outreach Program for Soccer) is a community based program that is designed to meet the needs of children and young adults that have physical and/or intellectual disabilities.  The program is geared towards player development rather than to competition, providing soccer training and recreation for children between the ages of four (4) and nineteen(19) years old.


NRYSA begins its tenth season of TOPS in the spring of 2020 as we continue to support the United States Youth Soccer Association's mission statement as it applies to disabled young athletes. USYSA’s motto promotes soccer as the “Game for all Kids,” and this program allows us to include this largely overlooked segment of our population in our already established town program.


What can you expect from NRYS TOPSoccer as a parent?

Our number one goal is to provide your child with a great opportunity.  That’s our philosophy and the foundation from which we’ll operate this program.   You should expect:

  • It will be a fun and meaningful experience for your child.
  • Field size and activities will be determined based upon the physical and mental abilities of the participants.
  • Games and activities will be adapted in ways that ensure your child will learn at his/her own pace.
  • Practices and games will be organized
  • We’ll have plenty of trained coaches and volunteers on hand at all times
  • The program will improve the overall fitness, self-esteem and social skill of your child.

Register Today!

The springl season starts on April 18, with sessions scheduled for Saturdays at Ipswich River Park, extending to June 6, excluding Memorial Day Weekend.  Sessions for players are from 4PM to 5PM, while volunteers arrive 30 minutes earlier to review the activities for the day

Player Registration is $25.00. Scholarships are available. Each child registered to participate will receive a uniform shirt, socks, and for each first-time participant, a new soccer ball. Shin pads are required, as well as soccer cleats or sneakers.  For safety reasons, no jewelry will be allowed with the exception of medic alert tags.

Players must register and complete all necessary medical forms and waivers as required by NRYSA in order to participate. The nominal fee to participate in the program covers the cost of uniform shirt, socks, ball and certain special equipment.

Program Information for Coaches and Volunteers 

TOPS is run by a group of high school volunteers and our board director, overseen by the Board of Directors of NRYSA, and relies on adult coaches and Buddies.   Buddies are youth volunteers, Middle and/or High School age. These volunteers act as enablers of the game for the players and work to insure their safety as well.
