November 28, 2023-The Staten Island Youth Soccer League (SIYSL), the southernmost league in the Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA), held its end of the Fall Season TOPSoccer Luncheon on Saturday, November 18 at the Manor House. TOPSoccer stands for The Outreach Program for Soccer, providing an opportunity for children with intellectual, physical and/or social characteristics that may require modified educational practices and services in order to develop to their potential.
Under the guidance of Jerrier Atassi, 27 kids are registered with SIYSL TOPSoccer. The children range from ages 7 to 19 and are on various levels of the spectrum.
“Some players are very capable while others need additional care and handling but we tend to everyone’s needs,” Jerrier explained. “Thanks to several volunteer coaches from high schools as well as all the parents who assist.”
SIYSL TOPSoccer is busy at the same time as the rest of the league, during the Fall and Spring Seasons. TOPSoccer plays on Saturdays, 3 pm for one hour at Owl Hollow Fields.
