HFC Challenge Soccer Placement Evaluations 2017-2018


You Must PRE-REGISTER for Placement Evaluations.  All players should arrive 45 minutes early.  Bring soccer shoes, shin guards, all necessary paperwork (copy of birth certificate, medical waiver, concussion acknowledgment form, player commitment and financial contract), and water.  All Players Must Check-In prior to going on the field.




Please PRE-REGISTER for Placement Evaluations!


The goal of the HFC Challenge Program is to provide players experiencing success at the Recreation or Academy level an opportunity to develop the individual skills in both the technical and tactical aspects of the game. For those players not involved in our Classic Program, the Challenge Program offers the next best opportunity for players to gain the skills needed to bring their game to a higher level.  The Challenge Program serves boys and girls in the Under-11 through Under-14 age groups.

Player Selection Policy:

  • The average team has 10-13 players on its roster (all teams in all age groups play in the 8v8 or 9v9 format).  Challenge staff make all the decisions on player selection.
  • Unless excused by the Challenge Director, every player must attend pacement evaluations in his or her age group and must make every effort to attend all placement evaluation sessions for his or her age group.
  • Eligible players for HFC Challenge: U11/12 players must be born in 2006 or 2007, U13/14 players must be born in 2004 or 2005

Notification of Selection

The Challenge Director will notify via email players who have been selected or not selected.  All emails will be sent as soon as possible after the initial placement evaluation dates.  It is important that you let us know if you will accept a position, if offered, as soon as possible.
