Professional Licensed Coaching - All of our coaches are licensed, paid, professional coaches. We ask parents to leave the coaching to our staff, verbal instruction, direction, or coaching is not permitted from parents during practices and games.

Character - We believe a component of player development is character development. We aim to develop players who compete with respect, humility, and graciousness.

HCSA programs are designed to complement one another to form a player development progression from U4 to U18. A player development philosophy means our programs are developed in the best interests of developing individual soccer players technically, tactically, physically, and mentally to reach their full potential. It is the belief of HCSA that a player development approach to our philosophy is in the best interests in growing and developing the game of soccer and improving the overall quality of players.

The concept of player development is essential to the long-term growth and improvement of the player. Player development demands that "the player is central" to all decisions made regarding training and competition.
