OVERVIEW & DATES
Recreational Soccer is the entry level offering from Hillsboro Soccer Club. This level is available for players from Kinder age to 8th Grade.
It is primarily focused on developing the love of the game and targets those players new to the sport or those who just want to play the game without having to commit to a year round sport.
Play in a HSC uniform, experience game environments with sessions twice a week and games at the weekend, all with the emphasis on having fun!
Spring Recreational open registration is December 31st - March 31st or until teams are full. Further openings will be dependent on roster opportunities.
Formation of teams is dependent on Volunteer Coaches, and players are placed on a first come first serve basis. When a team is full, players will be placed on a wait list until a space becomes available or another volunteer coach is found. Rostering will begin in Mid March as volunteers and teams are finalized.
Practices may begin as early as the week of August 23rd, 2 weeks before competition officially begins. Games start September 11th, and continue for the 8 consecutive Saturdays. Games begin as early as 9 AM and a majority are local at Hillsboro School District Fields & Parks, some affiliate teams do host games in their local area. Areas vary for different age groups.

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.
