First Practice will be week of Septemeber 7, 2022, at our home field at Jack D. Hughes Memorial Park. Last game will be on November 7. We will take a one week break for Fall Break.
Practices for our players, ages 8 and 9 will be on Mondays OR Wednesdays, from 5:45 to 6:30pm.
Games will be on Saturday Mornings/Afternoons or Friday Nights at the same place. Friday Night Games (6pm start) are played under the lights. (A team that has a double header, could have a game both on Friday and then also on Saturday).
The season will be 8 weeks. There will be 7 games total.
Game Schedule will be posted here before the season starts – On September 1.
To get an idea of what practice and games look like, we have some pictures here.
TEAM ASSIGNMENTS – Your child will be assigned to a team by September 1. Check back on September 1 to see the Team Assignments below!
NEW: – “Away Weekend” – All of our games will be at our field in Pineville EXCEPT for our “Away Weekend” – when ALL Hope Soccer Teams will visit our friends at the Morrison or Brace Family YMCA and play against YMCA teams that weekend. We may visit another partnering organizations as well.
NEW: – “Specialty Practice” – Our founder Nick played soccer in college. Because of that, we have some friends at Johnson and Wales University who have generously agreed to have their Head Coach and players run a “Specialty Practice” for all of our Hope teams. The location of this “Specialty Practice” will be announced later this season. A second “Specialty Practice” will likely be done with the Head Coach and Team from Queens University of Charlotte this Fall as well. These sepcialty practices are typically done at the field requested by the univiersities, and not our home field. Details will be made available soon.
NEW: – “Parent Orientation” – We will hold several “Parent Orientation” events this season. We will show new parents where you child will practice, tell you who their coach will be, show you how to get the schedule from our site, etc. We encourage everyone to come, especially if you are new to Hope. Times and dates will be announced soon!
If you would rather speak to someone in Spanish, please text us at 704 907 9346 and we’ll have Ercilia call you.
Covid Measures: We haven’t worn masks in a while. Last season seemed like very much back to normal and we loved it. We still ask that if you have symptoms, you take time off. Our organization and the park follow CDC guidelines. If anything changes, we’ll change with it. In our experience, all soccer organizations end up doing the same thing in regards to masks and safety measures.
