SPRING 2022 Season Updates

Updated January 8, 2022:

Our registration for Spring 2022 is Open!

If you are new and would like to come meet us in person, or you have a friend who’d like to meet us, you can come to one of our “Registration Events”

First Practice will be March 15, 2022, at our home field at Jack D. Hughes Memorial Park. Last game will be on May 21.  We will take a break for Easter and Spring holiday with CMS schedule.

Practices for our players, ages 4 and 5 will be on Tuesdays OR Thursdays, from 5:45 to 6:30pm.

Games will be on Saturday Mornings 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.

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 March 7.  Check back on March 7 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.

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 Spring as well.

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 Coach Greison call you.

Covid Measures: Last season, Fall 2021, masks were not required.  We anticipate no masks for the upcoming season.  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.

Practice Time and Location

We are simple!  Practices and games will be the SAME location in Pineville!  SAME PLACE for practices and games.  We have become aware that other soccer organizations may have multiple locations for games and times that may change throughout the season.  Because of this many people ask us if our location may change.  The answer is no.  Our schedule is simple. Everything is in the SAME location.

Your Coach

We’re different!  Hope Soccer Coaches are “homegrown”.  This means they grew up playing for our founder, Coach Nick.  All of our Coaches are skilled soccer players capable of teaching the beautiful game correctly at all age levels.

Each and every coach has completed a training in child safety.

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 and hand sanitizer.
