They said it...
Nick Messner, 2018 Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer TOPSoccer Buddy of the Year: One of my favorite things about coming to new sessions is seeing the new players that are here. You never really know what they’re going to bring to the table, but it’s always great to have new kids here. Expanding the program is something we’ve done over the past couple of years. With the help of Roxy (Gies) and Mel (Rowe), it’s been amazing.
Nicole Boyd, 2016 Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer TOPSoccer Buddy of the Year: I’ve been with (TOPSoccer) for 10 years. I started in middle school, and I am now in charge in helping with buddies. I do this because I love special ed. I want to be a special education teacher and this is what led me into that field. It’s really just a passion getting to work with the kids.
Deborah Parker, LDSA TOPSoccer parent of Jacob, Sophia and Liam: TOPSoccer has been tremendous in our lives. They’ve gone from not even wanting to touch a soccer ball, not wanting to get out of the car when they were young to now looking forward to coming to practice all the time, putting the jersey on. They have a ton of friends on the team.
