Youth Soccer Team in Charlotte

Hope Soccer is excited to offer youth soccer in Charlotte for Ages 13 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 (Travel). 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. The season is 8 weeks long, which includes atleast 7 games – but typically more because of tournament and double headers.

Do I have to volunteer to coach?

No!

We are about the only rec league in Charlotte that does not make parents volunteer to coach.  Instead, all of our coaches are talented soccer players who know the beautiful game and play it well.  We find that our players look up to their teenage/early-college coaches.  Each and every coach has completed a training in child safety.

How long is the season?

Opening day is Sept 2.  Last day is October 23.

This season, Fall 2024, we are NOT taking a “Fall Break”.

The season includes an End of Season Tournament, during which most teams play multiple games.  Each age bracket has a Final and also a match for 3rd and 4th place. 

First week of the season, we double the action with 2 practices for the opening week, instead of one, in order to jump start the season and get the kids ready for their first game the following weekend.

During the season, many teams have atleast one weekend of double headers.  Combined with the tournament and the other regular season games, most teams play closer to 10 games, then the minimum promised amount of 7 games.  So you get more when you sign up to play at Hope.

Where is my game schedule?

We use a software for our game schedules that has a FREE ap for our parents.  Once you download the ap, it will show you your entire games schedule.  It also shows you practice times.  And sends you game reminders, as well as practice reminders.  Our parents love this ap.  It makes evertything super easy!

What is "Hope Skills Clinics"?

Hope Skills Clinics are available to your child on the day they don’t practice. They are designed to let your child get more touches on the ball when they don’t have practice.  Hope coaches run drills and scrimmage.  You can find out more about it here, and sign up as well.  Cost is $5 per session.  This is only for players who are registered to play at Hope for the season.

Local community and Hope Soccer

At Hope, we love to build community.  Each season we host a “Community Night at the Park” and we invite all our parents to come by and meet each other. Hand out business cards and make connections.

If you are a small business owner and would like to get involved by sponsoring a team, we will print your logo on that team’s shirts and advertise your business through your sponsorship.  Learn more here.

Practice Strategy

Our youth soccer team for Ages 13 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.
