TOPSoccer is The Outreach Program for Soccer from US Youth Soccer. It is specifically designed to allow children with special needs to participate in sport of soccer. Any child with a special need can participate. The coaching staff consists of US Youth Soccer licensed coaches and volunteers from the Sport Club’s own soccer programs. There has been an instructor-to-child ratio of 1-to-1 in the past.
The Fort Wayne Sport Club was founded in 1927 by an active group of soccer players who immigrated to the Fort Wayne area from Germany in the aftermath of World War I. Their immediate goal was â€˜the promotion of football (soccer) and German culture’ in the Northeast Indiana area.
Today, the Fort Wayne Sport Club is a hub of soccer activity, with programs for recreational and competitive soccer players from age 4-years to 30-and-over. The German culture is celebrated in the many social events enjoyed by club members. “We are extremely proud of our long history and heritage of encouraging participation in soccer at all levels throughout the Fort Wayne area,” remarked Fort Wayne Sport Club President Dan Kruse.
