Soccer Swap a win-win proposition
The TOPSoccer Program (The Outreach Program for Soccer) is a community based training and team placement program for young athletes with special needs (topsoccer.us).
It is designed and administered by US Youth Soccer. Trumbull United Soccer Club wanted to start a local chapter approximately seven years ago. The money raised with the Soccer Swap over the years has been able to keep the program going.
Gently used soccer equipment is donated by the community over the course of the year, collected by swap teams throughout town, then cleaned and sold at the Soccer Swap on the opening day in the spring of Trumbull’s AYSO rec program.
The community benefits by being able to find good quality soccer equipment that is gently used for very reasonable prices.
At the same time the money raised benefits the community with the local chapter of TOPSoccer.
The local chapter started out with approximately 20 athletes and has since grown to more than 75 participants.
