Cal South TOPSoccer Program Turns 25

"We're all soccer players, special needs or not," says Sandy Castillo, chair of the Cal South TOPSoccer program, which is celebrating its 25th season of enabling children and adults with special needs to be engaged in soccer. Castillo has coached youth soccer since 1985 and TOPSoccer since 1991. To adjust to everyone's skill level, the rules of soccer are modified. Children unable to throw the ball in can kick it and children in wheelchairs can be goalie. The soccer ball can even have a rattle inserted to accommodate blind players. "If we can get a kid who hasn't ever been kicking a ball, and at the end of the season he is kicking it -- then that is a success," says Castillo.
