HILLSBORO SOCCER CLUB

Our mission is to provide the players of our community from all levels of play, who have a desire to enjoy the game and develop their skill set, an opportunity to be coached effectively, within a safe and enjoyable environment.

The Competitive program is created to offer a framework where committed players can work with certified/licensed coaches, to further develop not only on-field attributes but to create the whole player. We emphasize work ethic, confidence, sportsmanship and creativity within the game environment.

JOINING A TEAM THROUGH TRY OUTS

As we look forward to the 2020/21 Season, we are inviting players who wish to join mid-season into sessions within our Competitive Program.

We will then hold Try Outs in May 2021 for the 2021/22 season. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us using the links below.

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Team Selection Process

Players are placed in age group pools and evaluated over the Try Out windows in May. If selected for a Competitive team, the parents will be notified within 24 hours of the last session. We have multiple teams at every age group, and so we endeavor to find an appropriate level for every player.

Purpose

To provide a competitive environment for our community with licensed/certified coaches who's sole focus is to further develop every player within the team, with an emphasis on development over results.

Who Should Join

Players who are born between 2010-2003

Players who have a tactical, technical and social understanding of the sport. Those who are genuinely driven to improve through their love for the game itself.

For families who are committed to joining an 11 month program. We understand that multi sport athletes may enjoy other sports, and through positive communication this can be accommodated.

Our Competitive Program is for players aged U11-19 who are looking for a competitive soccer experience within our community. Training is 2-3 times per week, lead by a certified/licensed coach with the main emphasis on development over results. We form teams based on ability, so that they can compete in local and regional events.

There is a yearly membership fee for the Competitive Program, which covers the cost of your Fall and Spring League (U11-14) or Winter League (U15-19) registration fee, a Cup tournament (State, President's or Founder's Cup) and your training costs.

If a team chooses to enter additional tournaments throughout the year the cost for these events will be split up between the team. These events are generally in the $55 per player range for a registration fee, plus any travel expenses.

Team Formation

Teams will be formed after an evaluation period during Try Outs. This does not mean that rosters will be set for the entire year, as players will develop at different rates and based on the needs of the player, he/she may be moved.

After the rosters are formed, teams will use TeamSnap as their communication platform. This will give you full access to the training schedule, communication with coaching staff, availability and HealthCheck throughout the season.

Team Manager

For those amazing individuals who wish to be involved with the team in a more formal capacity, we offer the Team Manager role. This is pivotal for the team's success, and your role will include assisting with team communications, assistance with player cards and rosters, and collecting player documentation. Training will be provided.

Tournaments

All tournaments including State, Presidents and Founders Cup, along with Summer Events must be approved by the Director of your Program. This is to ensure that all events outside of training and league play are developmentally appropriate for the players.

If a team is approved to play in a tournament, there will be tournament fees split between the team (tournament registration, travel, food, etc.). We recommend that all teams complete fundraising as an option to cover these additional costs.
