Oct. 8, 2007
MILWAUKEE - Former members of the Marquette women's soccer team organized and participated in the TOPSoccer Clinic prior to the Golden Eagles match versus Georgetown on Sunday, October 7, at Valley Fields. TOPSoccer is an official U.S. Youth Soccer program enriching the lives of young athletes with disabilities through the game of soccer.
"Seeing a smile on those kids means the world to our team and coaches. We had a great turnout and all of the kids involved with TOPSoccer seemed to enjoy themselves," said head coach Markus Roeders. "Being part of Marquette University and providing service to others is part of our mission. It was an honor to have all of the kids, their parents and volunteers that are involved with TOPSoccer on campus and be part of our game. A special 'thank you' to our alumni who took part and organized the clinic, it undermines the commitment level of our 'Marquette Family'."
TOPSoccer is a community-based training and team placement program for young athletes with disabilities. The program is designed to bring the opportunity of learning and playing soccer to any boy or girl, ages 4-19, who has a mental or physical disability.
The goal of TOPSoccer is to enable the thousands of young athletes with disabilities to become valued and successful members of the U.S. Youth Soccer family.
