The Tolland Soccer Club is seeking middle and high schoolage volunteers for the Fall season of its TOPS Soccer Division. The Outreach Program for Soccer (TOPS) is open to boys and girls ages 5-18 with developmental disabilities. Volunteer commitment includes Tuesday evenings and Saturday mornings for 90 minutes, along with a smile and a positive attitude! The program runs from early September through the first week in November, and we ask for a regular commitment during this eight week period. For more information on how to volunteer this Fall, please contact Buddy Coordinator Mary Kay Della Camera at email@example.com or by phone at 860-874-2342. We look forward to hearing from past volunteers and welcome new faces as well, as we begin our 16th consecutive season. Thank you!
