by | Mar 12, 2020

United Soccer of Auburn is introducing a Unified Soccer team for the Spring 2020 season.

This team will be in addition to the existing TOPSoccer program. The unified team will meet once a week Saturdays from 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM at a field in Auburn, with a 30-minute foot skills practice followed by a 30-minute scrimmage. The team will have players in the 10 to 16 year old range, with and without intellectual disabilities playing together.

They will follow the Special Olympics Massachusetts (SOMA) rules; all players are equal and can play any position and all can score.

There are plans for the Auburn Unified team to play against the Holden Unified team and also play in two SOMA fall tournaments.

The season is scheduled to begin April 18 and end June 6, 2020. For additional information, contact TOPS Coordinator Dan Hastings (508 847 8161) TOPS@usauburn.com.
