  • 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 shoes with front cleats (toe cleats) may be worn (i.e., no baseball or football cleats if they have a front cleat, unless you cut it off). Only rubber cleats are allowed; metal cleats are not allowed. (Referees will check).
  • Each player should bring a bottle of water to games and practices. Coaches should allow adequate water breaks during practice & bring extra water (some players will always forget to bring water).
  • Each player needs to provide his/her own soccer ball.
    • U4, U5 & U6 use a size 3
    • U7 - U12 use a size 4
    • U14 & older use a size 5 ball.
  • At games, each player must wear their game jersey and socks (provided by HCS), shorts or pants, shin guards, and soccer cleats (without a toe cleat).
  • 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.)
