Competitive (Classic) Program Info Competitive (Classic) Program Info


The goal of our HFC Competitive Program (also known as "Classic") is to provide talented young athletes, who possess a strong interest in soccer training and competition, an environment that will allow them to reach their maximum potential in the sport. We offer the highest level of soccer training available to youth in Western North Carolina and employ the best coaching staff available. The majority of our coaches have played soccer at the collegiate level or higher and hold coaching licenses from the United States Soccer Federation (USSF), United States Youth Soccer (USYS) and United Soccer Coaches (formerly known as NSCAA). Coaches in the older age groups commonly have collegiate coaching experience.
Covid-19 return to play protocols effective August 3, 2020


Any players who were born from 2003-2012 are eligible to tryout/play in our competitive program.
