Recreational Soccer

“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”

- Benjamin Franklin

OVERVIEW

Recreation soccer is the entry level of soccer that Hillsboro Soccer Club offers. This level is available to players from age 5 (entering Kindergarten) through 14 (8th grade).

Recreation soccer is intended for players just entering soccer or those who simply enjoy the game and do not wish to participate in the more competitive Player Development and Junior levels.

Play in a HSC uniform, experience real life game time, coaching sessions twice weekly and most importantly - a LOT of fun!

Volunteering With Us

Hillsboro Soccer Club is built upon the foundation of our community, with our organization operated entirely by volunteers. We have a passion for teaching soccer, empowering players to develop life skills, and of course, a love of the game.

You can help by signing up to Coach a Team ; help with Field Maintenance ; help with Registration. Furthermore, there are many one time or ongoing positions to volunteer for. Contact HSC Admin for more information.

The first step to be a coach is to register your intentions. Coaches must register with two different systems.

Registering with the HSC identifies your interest in coaching, while you are also required to complete a Background Check via the Sports Affinity Software each seasonal year. Sports Affinity is an Online Data Management used by OYSA for Risk Management.

Teams are then created late July for Fall and mid March for Spring. There is a coach meeting to meet the board, discuss club policies, hand out team rosters, provide equipment, assign practice fields, and set expectations.
