3rd Annual TOPSoccer Festival at the STAR (South Texas Area Regional) Soccer Complex adjacent to Morgan's Wonderland. It's hosted by the South Texas Youth Soccer Association in cooperation with US Youth Soccer, STAR Soccer Complex, Morgan's Wonderland, North East Youth Soccer Organization Special Teams, Mission Road Ministries and the San Antonio Scorpions. The purpose is to give children and adults with special needs the opportunity to learn and play soccer while improving overall fitness, self-esteem and social skills. Local high school and college soccer players will be paired with athletes participating in the event and serve as "buddies." Scorpions players will take time out of preparation for North American Soccer League competition that will begin in mid-April.
