What is Thunder?

TOPSoccer Thunder Program for Athletes with a Disability Spring 2021 Dates and Times

Program will be delivered in April and May 2021. Actual dates, times and venue are still being confirmed.

Program Overview

The TOPSoccer (The Outreach Program for Soccer) Thunder Program is a community-based recreational program specifically designed to help athletes with physical, cognitive or developmental disabilities participate in soccer.  The Thunder program has been a part of the Rush organization since 1992 and continues to grow in popularity, bringing soccer to players who refuse to let their challenges stop them from participating. The emphasis of the program is on development, training, and a rewarding experience rather than on competition enabling individuals to improve their fitness and enhance their self-esteem.  One-on-one assistance is available for those who are in need of it.

The TOPSoccer program is an opportunity for the soccer community to come together and make a difference in the lives of all that participate.

How to Become a Volunteer

TOPSoccer programs are entirely dependent upon the dedication provided by volunteers. Volunteering brings more awareness and understanding to the special needs community. Community service hours can be counted towards assisting the program whether that is as a ‘Buddy’ or assisting with the organization and promotion of the program, it all makes a difference. 

TOPSoccer ‘Buddies”

Anyone can be a TOPSoccer Buddy: family members, students, teachers or friends. Whether you have played soccer all your life or getting involved for the first time, TOPSoccer provides an opportunity to give back to the community and increase the opportunities available to an under-served part of our population.
