It's not until speaking with Joe Cento, TOPSoccer director, does one realize how true this phrase really is.Joe started the first TOPSoccer league of Southwest Florida April 21, 2007 with 32 players.
Although the league does not finish until May 19, he
already has almost 100 players committed to another season in September.With the help of 10 coaches and 65 volunteer buddies from the club's recreational and competitive teams, CCSA's TOPSoccer has made magic in Southwest Florida
and at no cost to the players.
"The volunteers came in exchange for community service hours initially, but have stayed because of the relationships they've built," says Joe
continued to say, "I learned about TOPSoccer
after going to the Florida Youth Soccer Association's
annual general meeting in July and have fell in love with it since.Other people who run similar TOPSoccer
programs throughout Florida (i.e. Ken Muzyk from Brandon, FL and Barb Mallue from St. Petersburg, FL) have coached me and gave me a lot of confidence to start this TOPSoccer program."
