The Top of the Hill Team

The Top of the Hill Team, established in 2007, is an all volunteer organization comprised of parents and alumni dedicated to providing the Staples Boys Soccer program with the supplemental resources needed to remain one of the leading programs in the State of Connecticut. Paramount to this mission is using these resources to ensure the coaching staff has the tools it needs to consistently compete for FCIAC and CIAC honors, educate the young men on the team during their formative high school years, and give back to those affiliated with the program facing challenging life circumstances.
