Youth sports programs for special needs athletes
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 who has a mental or physical challenge.
Held during the fall at Centre Square Park, each Sunday morning assembly begins with drills and exercises led by experienced volunteers or professional trainers, followed by a game.
Offered on Sunday mornings starting in January at Lower Gwynedd Elementary, Top-Of-The-Key provides athletes with special needs the opportunity to experience the thrill of playing basketball, hearing the cheers, and learning the valuable lessons of youth sports.
Operating on Sunday mornings, Top-Of-The-Key begins activities in January and runs through early March.
About Bambino Buddy-Ball
For ages 5 and up, Whitpain Baseball’s Buddy-Ball Division was established with the belief that every child has the right to participate in baseball and softball. This co-ed divisions makes allowance for a “buddy” to help players with special needs swing a bat, round the bases, catch a ball, or score the winning run.
Spring games are played on Sundays at Wentz Run Park. Uniforms and equipment are provided for all players.
