Recreation Game And Practice Information

Game Schedule Information
Each family can access their player's ABYSA Recreation game schedule by logging into their family's PlayMetrics account. Once the season schedule is published - about 10 days before the 1st game date listed in the 'Important Dates' section - you will see the games in your PlayMetrics account calendar OR you can click on the team name in your account to see the team page.

Please check back each Friday before games during the season to make sure your child's schedule hasn't changed. There are times when games need to be moved throughout the season, so checking back each Friday will make sure you end up at your proper game location and time. When games are canceled due to inclement weather we will update the schedule by the following Wednesday.

Sign up for HFC Pre-Academy (7U-10U)

If your child is a 7U-10U player in Buncombe, Henderson, or Madison County who is playing rec soccer, but wants more time and help learning and mastering skills, our HFC Pre-Academy program offers an additional day of skill-building practice for players already participating in our ABYSA Recreation program or playing in other local programs.
The HFC Pre-Academy program provides a platform to introduce players to a training experience consistent with ABYSA's/HFC's next competitive level of the player development pathway (HFC Academy (8U-10U)HFC Academy (11-12U)HFC Intermediate (13-15U), and HFC Competitive (10U-19U)) while still competing for their recreation team.

Pre-Academy players will go to their recreation team practice one day of the week and then come to Pre-Academy for a second practice each week. Families can choose the Pre-Academy day that works with their ABYSA Recreation team's schedule. The HFC Pre-Academy staff is made up of highly qualified staff coaches who want to give back to the game and help guide some of our youngest players as they learn the skills and concepts to find more enjoyment in the game.

ABYSA Sportsmanship Award

ABYSA and ABC Pediatrics of Asheville are proud of our ongoing partnership with the SPORTSMANSHIP AWARD PROGRAM.

ABC Pediatrics of Asheville and ABYSA, recognize that the life lessons learned from being part of a sports team are just as important as the physical activity and exercise that sport provides. We are grateful to ABC Pediatrics for helping us make learning about sportsmanship a core value of our recreation program and providing a format for coaches and parents to help our children learn these important lessons. We hope you will join us in using this program as a teaching tool.
