The HSC Intramural Program is for children in the local community. The program gives players the opportunity to learn the game of soccer and be part of a team. Age groups include U6, U8, U10 and U12. Players are placed in age groups by birth year/birth date range. Time commitment is one practice night and one game per week. There are 2 seasons - Spring and Fall - and each season typically lasts 11-12 weeks. Teams are also scheduled to play 7-8 games on Sundays throughout the season. Additionally, U8/U10/U12 plays 1 tournament per season, known as Super Soccer Sunday, to provide a competitive atmosphere for players. All Star games will be held at the end of each season.
There is no travel required for intramural, and all practices/games are held outside at the Utz Fields in Hanover. Teams are co-ed and are selected based on many factors, including preferred practice night, siblings in the club, gender composition of the registrants, etc. Every attempt is made for each team to have an equal number of players at different levels to have a fair playing field.
Each team will play the other teams in their age group - each age group has slightly different rules and field sizes. Coaches work together to referee games for U6 and U8.
Players receive a jersey and socks to be worn on game days. Cleats, shin guards and comfortable clothes are the only other equipment needed (a ball to practice with at home is encouraged). Look for a Dick’s Sporting Goods coupon and information about Casey’s Cleats at the beginning of each season.
The cost of the intramural program is $85.
**The Fall 2021 season begins the week of August 23 and the first games will be Sunday, September 12. The season continues through the beginning of November.
