Become a Buddy

In TOPSoccer, each participant is assigned a volunteer, a trained “Buddy” who is typically a little older and neurotypical. This Buddy works with their player individually and makes sure they are safe, engaged, supported and having fun. The player-Buddy relationship is maintained throughout the course of a season, resulting in strong interpersonal bonds and an establishment of trust and confidence that allows each player to achieve their full potential.

No soccer experience is needed, just kindness and a desire to be a Buddy to another child in your community. It is a great opportunity for High School Students and parents.

To become a TOPSoccer Buddy, you must take a free, 2-hour course. The next training offered through New Jersey Youth Soccer is on September 12. The registration link and course time is below.
