The HFSC Recreational program is a noncompetitive soccer program that helps younger players build a foundation for future growth in soccer. HFSC aims to make soccer accessible to any child wanting to play by providing a local, affordable, well-run recreational program.
Teams are led by a volunteer Coach and practice a minimum of 1 time per week.

Below we have outlined the updated registration and team-building process for Fall 2022 and going forward. Please read through these policy changes in their entirety.
Recreational divisions operate on a “soccer year” that starts in the fall, and carries through to spring of the next calendar year. New teams are organized every fall.
Players registering in the U8 and older divisions will undergo evaluations in an effort to form balanced teams. Evaluations will happen once per soccer year. Players evaluated for the fall season will not be re-evaluated if returning for the spring season. Players playing spring-only will be evaluated in the spring.
It is our goal to place players returning in the spring on the same teams whenever possible.
A parent volunteering to coach a team will have their child placed on the team coached unless otherwise requested during registration, or if they are in a different age division.
Brothers or sisters in the same division will be placed on the same team unless otherwise requested during registration.
A coach may request one parent to be an assistant. The assistant must request to be placed with the head coach. The assistant coach will have their child placed on the team coached unless otherwise requested during registration, or if they are in a different age division.
Sponsors may indicate that they want their child to be on the team sponsored.
A request not to be placed with a specific coach will be honored. The player will be placed on a team based on need.
During registration, one request to accommodate carpooling will be accepted. The request must be mutual with the other player in order to be honored.
No requests for specific coaches, or to play with specific players will be honored.
Note: players may submit requests to play UP a division, but not to play DOWN to a younger division
