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.

Hope soccer teams of all ages, from U6 to U18.

Practice Time and Location 

PRACTICES will be on Mondays OR Wednesdays.

Start Time:  5:45pm – 6:30pm

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.

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.


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.
