  • Water Bottle (we sell drinks in our concession stand if you forget)
  • Sunscreen
  • Bug Spray
  • Camera

TOPSoccer ATHLETE CHECK-IN BEGINS AT 10 A.M.

All TOPSoccer Athletes and volunteers are asked to sign-in upon arrival. Upon check-in, all TOPSoccer Athletes and Volunteer Coaches will receive an event t-shirt, a name badge and a concession ticket (which may be redeemed at our Concession Stand). In addition, TOPSoccer Athletes who do not have a soccer ball will receive one to use for the day.

TOPSoccer Athletes will be matched up with at least one coach for the entire event. Coaches will be responsible for guiding their Athlete from station to station without leaving them at any time. Coaches will accompany Athletes to their parents as needed for water breaks, concession breaks and restroom breaks, as well as work with an Athlete's parents for any other special needs. Parents and family members are invited to follow their Athlete along throughout the event day to enjoy the experience, take pictures and/or help out as necessary. Ideally, we'd like to give parents and families a chance to relax and have fun!

VOLUNTEER COACHES: Those who can arrive early for set-up are asked to do so anytime after 8:30 a.m. At the latest, coaches are asked to arrive and check-in by 9:45 a.m. Upon arrival, please sign-in to be assigned an area to help set-up. Further instructions will be provided to you at that time.
