Hartwell TOPSoccer League for Children with Special Needs
The Hartwell TOPSoccer League was founded in 2004 and has been providing fun and exciting weekends of soccer in the fall and spring every year since then for children ages 5 and up who have unique challenges, are residents of Glastonbury and who are registered through the Hartwell organization. The TOPSoccer League is designed to allow children with special needs the opportunity to learn soccer skills at their own pace, and with all necessary supports in place. The TOPSoccer team includes a committed group of coaches and peer mentors who join the players on Saturdays to support skill development, drills and small games. Players who require one to one assistance are offered direct peer mentor support, as well as personal coaching throughout each practice. During the Fall 2012 season the TOPSoccer team had a very exciting and successful game against the GHS varsity boys soccer team who volunteered their time during their own busy season to create a memorable experience for the TOPSoccer players.
