Youth Soccer Team in Charlotte
Hope Soccer is excited to offer youth soccer in Charlotte for Ages 12 and Under. This team can take younger players who are very advanced and would like to play up, or it could make exceptions for less skilled players, who are not ready to play U14. Exceptions can be made on a case per case basis. The team is coed, so it is for boys and girls. This team is for all skill levels. Teams are not picked at random, but put together to be balanced.
Ages 5 – 12 | $144 – Full Season | $43 Uniform

Photos from Practice
Our youth soccer team for Ages 12 and under will focus on field awareness. Our objective is to teach our players how to use the space on the field creatively!
We will focus on field awarness and movement off the ball.
We will teach our players how to maintain possesion of the ball and the creativity it takes to transition from possesion to attacking and finishing.
We will show our players how to differentiate between individual excellence and team harmony.
At each practice, we share our faith with players wishing to hear.
Please remember to wear your soccer gear including cleats, and shin guards. Please bring a water bottle and hand sanitizer.
Our soccer programs are aligned with US Soccer. If you are looking for a similar soccer environment closer to Matthews, we recommend the Brace Family YMCA. If you are looking for a more competitive environment, we recommend the Charlotte Eagles. To see how we’re involved in our community, please visit our Community Support Page.
