The Asheville Buncombe Youth Soccer Association (ABYSA) is a 501( c ) 3 not for profit organization providing children and families in Western North Carolina with both recreational and competitive soccer programs. Soccer is America’s most popular participation sport for youth, and is a fun and healthy activity for all kids! Whether you are newcomers to soccer or desire to compete at a higher level, we have the right program for you! If we are not already serving your family, we hope to have the opportunity to do so soon!
Our Recreation Program is the right program for entry level players, and for players who are just looking for some fun and exercise in a friendly team atmosphere. This program serves players ages five to eighteen. Our more competitive programs start with the HFC Academy Program for eight and nine year old players. For competitive, developmental players ages ten to fourteen, ABYSA also offers the HFC Challenge Program, and for the highest level of training and competition, ABYSA offers HFC Classic Soccer for players ages ten to eighteen. ABYSA also offers summer camps for all ages. These camps provide fun and challenging opportunities for all levels of play and are designed to be working-parent friendly.
The Highland Football Club (HFC) is the Classic Division of ABYSA and is the most competitive level of soccer offered by the North Carolina Youth Soccer Association. HFC consists of boys and girls teams in the Under-11 through Under-18 age groups and is the appropriate level for athletic players who desire to train at the highest level with our professional coaching staff.
