The goal of the Challenge Training 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 (Highland Football Club), the Challenge Training Program offers the best opportunity for players to gain the skills needed to bring their game to a higher level.  To accomplish this, we utilize coaches who have significant coaching and playing experience. Many of the Challenge Trainers who work in this program also work in the Highland Football Club, the Classic Division of ABYSA.

All teams train twice each week with our professional trainers and will have a designated game day coach. All game day coaches are volunteers, and the experience level of these coaches varies widely. All matches are played in the Western North Carolina area. Half of these matches are in Asheville, while the other half are played at away sites. These games are mostly within a one-hour driving distance – Hickory, Hendersonville, etc.
