PLAYER SELECTION POLICY
HFC holds fair and open tryouts every year to form teams from the best soccer players that are capable and committed. We are always interested in identifying new talent.
- The average team has 15 – 18 players on their roster (U11 & U12 teams average 11 – 13 players). HFC coaches make all decisions on team selection.
- Unless excused by the Director of Coaching, every player must try out in his or her true age group. Players will only be assigned to an older age group team for player development reasons, not for convenience, and these are rare exceptions.
- After the first team has been selected, HFC may form additional teams in any age group where enough classic level players are available.
- Tryouts for HFC teams are held each year in late May/early June; however, HFC is dedicated to identifying talent and offering opportunities for interested players any time of year. If your child missed the tryout period and is interested in a possible supplemental tryout with an HFC team, please contact Kade Kawaguchi (HFC Women’s Director of Coaching) or Trei Morrison (HFC Men’s Director of Coaching).
NOTIFICATION OF SELECTION
HFC will notify via e-mail players who have been selected, not selected or who will be asked to attend a supplemental tryout at a later date. All e-mails will be sent as soon as possible after the initial tryout dates. It is very important that you let us know if you will accept a position, if offered, by the second tryout date. If you are undecided please contact us. An HFC representative will help you with any questions you might have about the program.
WHAT IF I AM NOT OFFERED A POSITION ON A CLASSIC TEAM?
Players not selected for a classic team will be referred to the ABYSA Challenge Program for age groups U11 – U14. Assessments made at Classic tryouts will be forwarded to the Challenge Director, who will contact the player.
