Spring 2020 Season Cancelled

A Message from the HWSC Board of Directors

Based on the current guidelines, regulations, and recommendations from state and local authorities and for the safety of the league's members, Portland Youth Soccer Association (PYSA) has decided to cancel the Spring 2020 season. We know that this is a disappointing update, but player, coach, referee, and spectator safety is paramount both to PYSA and Hollywood Soccer Club (HWSC).

The board of directors for HWSC is reviewing refund options for all Spring 2020 participants, who will receive an additional email update soon with more information regarding refunds. HWSC is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization, and if you wish to donate your player's registration fee, in total or in part, we will use it to offset registration costs incurred this Spring season. Simply respond affirmatively to the email to opt in.

We thank you for your patience, understanding, and support during this difficult time, and we look forward to seeing you in the upcoming Fall 2020 season.

HWSC, Get Your Feet Busy!

Links, Tips, Tricks & More

Since we are all cooped up, how about working together to build some skills and show off some moves?

Our Practice Plans page offers links to useful videos for learning new individual skills. Practice at home and when Fall comes you'll have an arsenal of new moves.

But let's not stop there. Send us video links and ideas that you find helpful, or send links to videos of yourself doing new moves or a good training regimen and we'll post them (with your permission, of course).
