To ensure that all of our players return in a safe manner, we have continued working with state and local authorities to stay up to date with the requirements of the Return to Play.

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!

FEE BREAKDOWN

Now more than ever, we are devoted to ensuring that no player goes without playing because of finances. In an effort to continue our transparency with all of our members, we have created the graphic to the right, to highlight where your registration fees go.

From overhead fees, coach incentives, education, equipment and fields, you can see the full breakdown to the right.

As you can see, every dollar counts, and during these unprecedented times, if you feel that you can help another member of our community play by sponsoring a player, we have ways in which you can do so.

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.

Registration for this event will be available alongside the Spring Registration

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 and manage a Pod of players for the 7-week program. You are then given the incentive of an in-house education through the club, the opportunity to work with your son or daughter within the pod of players. You will also have your program fee reimbursed at the end of the season after the gear has been collected and returned.

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.

Coaches are required to wear face masks when working with the players. Head volunteer coaches are given a social distancing curriculum that enforces social distancing requirements to players while offering the benefits of a typical soccer exercise. 

Players are required to wear a mask when going to and from the field, however they are not required to wear a mask during the practice, as social distancing will be actioned with every exercise. Should the players feel more comfortable wearing a mask they are more than welcome to do so.

Free clinics are sponsored by the club and available to all coaches and cover a variety of topics such as small-sided games, goalie tips, injury prevention, and so on.
