First Pillar Program

The First Pillar program is for players born in 2008, 2009 and 2010, 2011. The program is intended to introduce the players to a training experience consistent with HCSA’s next level of play (HFC Hendersonville’s Academy, Challenge, or Classic programs) while helping teach them the techniques necessary for future soccer success and greater enjoyment of the game.

Each member of the First Pillar Skill Development Program staff has played collegiate or soccer professionally and is qualified to teach developmentally appropriate soccer material to HCSA’s young soccer players. The program is intended to be an additional day of practice for players participating in the HCSA Recreation Program. Players will go to their HCSA recreation team practice one day of the week and then come to “First Pillar” for a second practice.

Program sessions are held on Wednesdays during the season.
