Braden River Soccer Club: TOPSoccer (founded by Dave Robinson)
-The insight of Karl Grosch, Don Greer and Robert Nessler would change the face of youth soccer - not to mention youth sports. It was the spring of '74; these men spent three days of non-stop labor to pen the initial United States Youth Soccer Association (US Youth Soccer) Constitution, By-Laws, Rules and Regulations by hand. Although it was considered revolutionary at the time, the goal was to unite the worlds of youth soccer in the United States through a democratic structure to provide uniform rules and guidelines. These guidelines would facilitate intra-state, inter-state and international play. US Youth Soccer would also provide a structured appeals process, and its marketing and licensing programs would help US Youth Soccer hold down player costs while providing revenue for increased services.
