OVERVIEW

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.

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.

Become a Referee

Encouraging your child, or even yourself, to become a referee in the Recreational Soccer program is a wonderful way to introduce yourself into the world of soccer refereeing.

For a 13+ Year old it is a great way to acquire responsibility, furthering their development as a young adult, and of course, an opportunity to earn money in a positive environment.

You can sign up to become a referee by clicking here.

You will be directed to Oregon Referee Committee, where you will find the upcoming classes and respective costs.

Once you are certified, you will be able to sign up for games that are requiring referees and begin your journey.

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. 

Coaching With Us

Are you interested in becoming, or continuing as a volunteer coach for Hillsboro Soccer Club?

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.

The clinics are often geared to particular age levels and range from topics useful to Beginners through Experienced coaches. HSC Recreational Coaches who attend a Coach Clinic will qualify for their player's registration fee reimbursement after the season is complete.
