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.

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!

Hope Soccer uses Playerspace app for game scheduling.

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”.  

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.

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 5 to 7 will focus on teaching the basics like the appropriate way to pass using the inside of our foot.

We will focus on field awareness.   Our objective is to teach our young players how to use the space on the field.

Having more space gives players more time to receive the ball, control it, and make a pass.

SPACE = TIME = QUALITY.

Having the time to receive the ball, control it, and make a pass results in a better quality when doing these things.

We aim to provide a soccer strategic learning experience through age appropriate games/drills the kids will have fun playing.

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.
