Welcome to Ringgold Youth Soccer


TOPSoccer at RAYSA, Play or Volunteer

The TOPSoccer program with Ringgold Area Youth Soccer Association is also open to families from neighboring youth soccer leagues as well as across the other South Hills and Mon-Valley communities of Western PA.

TOPSoccer here is organized by the TOPSoccer Director from Ringgold Area Youth Soccer Association and supported by volunteers from South Hills communities. Every player has a "Soccer Buddy" to assist him or her on the field. These buddies are the driving force in TOPSoccer – they help teach the players the game, provide encouragement, and have fun! The TOPSoccer program has been a win-win experience for players and buddies alike! 

RAYSA TOPSoccer has two seasons: spring and fall, corresponding with our traditional youth soccer seasons.  The program is open to special needs children, ages 4 to 12. TOPSoccer sessions are typically one hour long once a week, beginning with warm-up activities and drills, and concluding with a brief scrimmage/game. 

TOPSoccer sessions day of week and time are determined by the RAYSA TOPSoccer Director each season. TOPSoccer sessions will be located at one of the RAYSA youth soccer fields.

Please contact RAYSA Support at [email protected] with any questions.

RAYSA will provide every player with a soccer ball to borrow during sessions
