HPBC Soccer Program Mission Statement and Guidelines

September 7 - November 9, 2013
Awards Ceremony: November 12, 2013

Our Mission
  The HPBC provides a soccer league in order to provide families with an opportunity for children to participate in a Christ centered activity.  Our goal is to allow children to play and compete in a Christian atmosphere, and for the parents to have fellowship.  We desire our players as well as families to realize Jesus Christ should be the center of our lives.  We encourage this through prayer, and a short challenge from God's Word before practices and games, and a concluding Award Ceremony, that has a Christ centered object lesson.
General Information
* Our league is open to all children from ages 4 years old through 13 years old. 
* They do not have to be a member of our church.
* We practice and play only on Saturdays.
* Christian conduct is expected from everyone.
* In consideration of others, HPBC requests no pets on church property.

They will learn the basics of kicking and trapping, not using their hands, the object of the game, and introducing them to the field (sidelines, end lines, and goals).  They will also be introduced to the importance of "stretching" (calisthenics).  The emphasis will be on learning the skills of the game.
Age 6, 7, and 8 year olds @ 10:15 - 11:15 AM
  For ages 6 - 8 year olds.  This age group will be broken up into two groups.  This will depend on the number of players.  The Players will continue to learn the basics of soccer.  They will also play on smaller fields with less field players.  This will allow the children to participate in the game like atmosphere and to be more involved in the game.  The emphasis will be on learning the skills of the game.
