Highland Football Club (HFC)
Having some fun in the snow!
For Immediate Release:
Highland Football Club (HFC) Girls teams reach top NCYSA division.
With victories over the weekend, the Under-15 98 HFC Red G coached by Jason ReMine and the Under-16 97 HFC Red G coached by Carolyn Warhaftig earned promotion to the North Carolina Youth Soccer Association (NCYSA) Premier Division for next season. Both teams finished their fall seasons undefeated and will join the Under-14 99 HFC Red G who earned promotion to the Premier Division last spring. The NCYSA Premier Division, a state-wide league, is the highest level of play in the state and is made up of the top 10-12 teams at each age group in North Carolina.
With the promotion of these two teams, the HFC Girls’ Classic Program boasts teams in three of the five age groups that offer this level of play, a first in the 31 year history of the Asheville Buncombe Youth Soccer Association (ABYSA).
“It has been great to watch all of these players develop over the years. We are extremely proud of their accomplishment and excited about what the future holds for the teams and our Girls’ Classic Program. Many of these players started in our recreation program when they were five year olds and joined the HFC Youth Academy as eight and nine year olds. They have been working hard for a long time and many good soccer coaches deserve credit for where they are now,” said Jason ReMine, Director of Coaching for HFC Girls’ Classic.

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.
