*There is a minimum FOUR (4) HOUR YEARLY SERVICE REQUIREMENT for ABYSA/HFC players for the 2020-2021 Seasonal Year.

ABYSA makes every effort to contain the cost of this program through tournament hosting, fundraising, and the use of a growing volunteer base. It is the philosophy of ABYSA that cost should not be a deterrent for any qualified player to participate in academy soccer. 

Payment Plan Option:

ABYSA offer a monthly installment plan for Academy players.

ABYSA has established 3 programs to mitigate the costs of playing Academy soccer: Ingle's Gift cards, Tournament Program Ad Sales, and G.O.A.L.S. Financial Aid programs.

Big savings on your personal soccer fees

Ingles Gift Card Program

Ingles gift cards (formerly called "scrip") are purchased by ABYSA/HFC at a discount from Ingles. 
Player families purchase these gift cards at face valaue from their team representative. 5% of the purchase is applied as a credit against their team fees. 
Example: A purchase of $100 of Ingles gift cards yields $100 worth of groceries and a $5 reduction of the player's fees. 
Some families have paid all their fees from Ingles gift card purchases alone!

Tournament Program Advertising Sales

ABYSA/HFC hosts 2 invitational tournaments each year.For each of these events, a tournament program is produced. ABYSA/HFC families are encouraged to solicit local businesses to place tournament advertisements, post on-site banners, etc.50% of all ad sales will be returned to the player’s team to be used specifically towards their account balance.Information on the program is available on our website and will be given to player families prior to the annual Asheville Riverside Summer Shootout in August.

Financial Aid Programs

G.O.A.L.S. Financial Aid
(Granting Opportunities for Advancement in Life through Soccer)

This program provides financial support to committed players who otherwise would not be able to participate in Academy soccer. The Financial Aid Application is an online form and all information is kept confidential. Applicants should be committed to the academy program and should regularly participate in the other fundraising opportunities offered by ABYSA. The Financial Aid is need-based and each application is individually reviewed by the G.O.A.L.S. Funding Committee. ABYSA is confident that, by utilizing the Ingles gift card, Tournament Ad Sales and if necessary, G.O.A.L.S Financial Aid program, any committed player and family can financially afford to participate in HFC Academy soccer.
