Highland Football Club (HFC)

ABYSA’s Classic Division

The goal of HFC is to provide talented young athletes, who possess a strong interest in soccer training and competition, an environment that will allow them to reach their maximum potential in the sport. We offer the highest level of soccer training available to youth in Western North Carolina and employ the best coaching staff available. The majority of our coaches have played soccer at the collegiate level or higher and hold coaching licenses from the United States Soccer Federation (USSF) and the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA). Coaches in the older age groups commonly have collegiate coaching experience.


HFC teams compete in the NCYSA classic league, the highest level of competition available to youth players in our state. Our most successful U14-U18 teams compete in the Region 3 Premier League East with the best teams from North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida.


Playing classic soccer with HFC requires a significant level of commitment from both players and their family. This commitment is an essential component for each player who wishes to reach his or her potential in soccer and for our club and our teams to be successful. If selected, you will need to arrange your schedule so that you can participate in your team’s training sessions, games, and tournament activities. HFC families help each other and cooperate with transportation and travel in order to make this happen. We do ask our families to give a serious commitment to the club regarding finance, time and other resources, but the rewards from the friendships developed and the quality of time spent with your child are immeasurable.


We expect the highest level of sportsmanship from our players, coaches and parent spectators at all times. It is important that all of our members support us in this endeavor.
