If you’re 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”.

If you would rather speak to someone in Spanish, please text us at 704 907 9346 and we’ll have Coach Obed call you.

Covid Measures: As you know, we all wear masks everywhere we go.  At this time it would appear that the CDC guidelines and the Mecklenburg County Guidelines which ALL soccer organizations have to follow would include wearing mask on the field.  So please have a mask for your child when you come to practice.  We hope that these requirements will soon change not to require a mask. We will keep you informed.  For the latest updates on Covid measures, please click 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 and hand sanitizer.

Una nota del Coach Nick: Quiero agradecer de manera especial a Obed por haber traducido este mensaje al español para nuestras familias de habla hispana.
Yo conocí a Obed cuando en una ocasión me llamó para inscribir a su hijo para que jugara con nosotros en U14. Me dijo que quería conocerme en persona antes de registrarlo, así que lo invité a que nos conociéramos en una cafetería donde yo acostumbraba tener mi Estudio Biblico cada miercoles. Yo pensé que el solo pasaría a saludar y a preguntarme cosas relacionadas al futbol. En lugar de eso, llegó con su Biblia y nos acompañó al Estudio Biblico esa noche. Desde aquella vez se volvió parte del grupo y nos hemos vuelto buenos amigos. Ahora él es parte de Hope Soccer Ministries y tiene a su cargo los devocionales para el equipo U12. También nos ayuda como asistente del entrenador para el equipo U14 donde juega su hijo.
Gracias Obed!
