TOPSoccer Buddy performs extraordinary accomplishments as a TOPSoccer Buddy. The Buddy (volunteer) demonstrate patience, understanding, dependability, flexibility and ability to adjust to ever-changing on-field situations. The Buddy is also an invaluable volunteer who facilitates the program by filling many roles, including being a coach, cheerleader and role model as well as assisting when needed with administrative responsibilities. Other important qualities of the buddy are engaging players one-on-one, modeling desired behavior and being cognizant of player safety. Buddies assist, guide, direct and teach the game of soccer and its skills while creating a fun learning experience.
TOPSoccer runs entirely on volunteer coaches and buddies. Please know you and your commitment to the organization are greatly appreciated!
All TOPSoccer coaches and volunteers are required to be registered with FYSA and complete a yearly background check, a 90-minute SafeSport online certification course, and a CDC Concussion test.
