Lend a Helping Hand
It is the goal of the program to have a 'buddy' or helper for each TOPSoccer player. The buddy assists with the drills and skills, but also serves as support and guidance.
You do not need to have soccer knowledge to be a buddy. Coaches will teach you as they teach the players. Buddies do need to make the time commitment to be at each session if possible. Players look for their buddies and consistency is very important.
