All players must provide their own shin guards, and wear them to every practice and every game. Hard surfaces of shin guards must be covered with socks. (Referees will check this). Encourage parents to buy properly sized shin guards that have a hard surface (plastic or fiberglass) and padding to cover the anklebone. Shin guards should cover the entire shin, from the ankle to the knee.


All players must provide their own soccer cleats. No baseball or football cleats, and no metal cleats are allowed. (Referees will check).


Each player should bring a bottle of water to games and practices. Coaches should allow adequate water breaks during practice. There should be NO sharing of water bottles.

Each player should bring their own personal container of hand sanitizer with them to practices and games.


Each player needs to provide their own soccer ball.

  • U4, U5 & U6 use a size 3
  • U7 - U12 use a size 4
  • U15 & older use a size 5 ball.


Each player should have a small bottle of hand sanitizer with them at all times, and use it frequently.

At games, each player must wear their game jersey and socks (provided by HCS), shorts or pants, shin guards, and soccer cleats. (No baseball or football cleats, and no metal cleats are allowed. Referees will check.)


No jewelry, metal devices, or hazardous equipment may be worn. (Arm casts can be allowed if the player has a doctor’s release, the cast is padded with foam or bubble wrap, and the referee approves it before the game. New piercings that cannot be removed must be covered with a bandaid or medical tape and approved by the referee.)
