What is the difference between Rec soccer and Comp soccer?

The biggest difference between competition soccer and recreation soccer is the level of commitment, quality of training received, and the cost. Rec soccer is typically run by parent volunteers with little soccer knowledge. Competition programs are run by licensed, professional coaches with extensive soccer background. Detailed information on the program offerings can be found under Competition Program.

How are teams formed?

HV United typically creates around 40 teams each year of varying ages and abilities, so there are usually plenty of options for incoming players. Teams are formed according to gender and birth year (not grade level), based the abilities and commitment level a player. Placements on a team can and will change year to year. Occasionally a player may move up or down a team during a soccer year depending on individual situations.
