CORE PRINCIPLES

Character - We believe a component of player development is character development.  We aim to develop players who always display courage, determination, discipline, energy, humility, and respect on and off the field

Community - striving to build strong relations that value honesty, inclusion, and respect among our members

Passion - demonstrating devotion, excitement, joy, spirit and a willingness to make sacrifices to reach individual and collective goals

HCSA programs are designed to complement one another to form a player development progression from U6 to U19. 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.
