HSC Academy - Taking the Next Step
In an effort to constantly look to improve our programs and the subsequent learning environment for our players, we realized that there is a gap between programs within our own Player Pathway.
To ensure that we are not doing a disservice to our players, we have created a brand new program called the HSC Academy. This program will be headed by our Recreational Co-ordinator Mason Aguirre, and our Assistant Director of Coaching Michael Wall. Along with quality and experienced coaches from our competitive program, we are looking to create a bridge for players to continue their growth.
Train on turf, with licensed coaches and a player centered environment, to allow our players to reach their true potential.
