New Program Structure

Biggest Changes: 

What was previously known as our "Challenge Program" has now been restructured in two ways:  

  • The former 11U/12U Challenge Program now falls under the HFC Academy umbrella.
  • The former 13U/14U Challenge Program is now known as the "HFC Intermediate Program" and now extends into the 15U age group. 
The purpose of these changes is to streamline and simplify our programming options in a way that makes it easy for everyone to understand. This will hopefully allow all players to find the right path that works for them. 

Player Pathway Options

Below you will find a graphic that illustrates how this new programming flows depending on what your ultimate goals are as a soccer player. Which pathway is right for you?
