Welcome to Hobe Sound Soccer Club (HSSC), home of the Strikers! Located in Martin County, Florida, our mission is to foster children’s physical, mental, and emotional growth and development through soccer. We provide a soccer home for players regardless of age, race, disability, or financial situation.
Under the guidance and direction of a highly qualified coaching staff, children’s lives are positively impacted both on and off the field.
Hobe Sound Soccer Club is tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Our federal identification number is 65-0143123. Contributions to the club are tax-deductible.
Hobe Sound Families,
We want to keep you connected and updated with soccer as we all go through this global pandemic together. We also believe it is our responsibility to adhere to the CDC's safety precautions including social distancing to minimize the spread of Coronavirus.
All play including practices, goal keeping, TOPSoccer, scrimmage, games, events, trainings… are suspended until April 30th. Keeping with the Parks and Recreation guidelines.
As you know, on the morning of March 12th, our Board of Directors made the decision to suspend our club's practices and games and soccer events effective immediately with the intent to review on 3/22. Later that afternoon, yesterday we received Information from Martin County Parks and Recreational Department - All: Latest update as of Wed, 3/18/2020, 2:30pm – The suspension of all organized Youth & Adult activities, including but not limited to league practice & games, training, private instructions, tournaments, equestrian events, special events, etc. has been extended to April 30, 2020 . We continue to monitor the situation on a daily basis. If you have any questions, and/or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me directly. Thank you. Stay safe & Healthy.
Hobe Sound Soccer Club will continue to monitor the situation and will make every effort to reschedule any games that were suspended during this time. We also realize that, with all the recent closures, our players have a lot of downtime and are likely anxious to get back on the field. Our goal is to make that happen as soon as possible while adhering to FYSA and CDC's recommendations.
In the meantime, our players need to continue to eat healthy, keep active and burn off some energy. This is a great opportunity for players to self-motivate and exercise, working on consistency of their soccer skills and turning their weaknesses into strengths.
Our Director of Coaching has recently contacted all of our coaches asking them to send every player on their team “homework “, technical and tactical soccer tasks that our players can either do indoors, in the yard or garage - all with safety in mind. If you do not hear from your coach within the next few days, please feel free to contact your team coach for ideas and set up a Home curriculum to suit your needs. This is also a great opportunity to work with your coach for your mid-season player evaluation and work through areas that you both agree need working on.
As always, our Director of Coaching, Julie Hemsley, is available for ideas and assistance. You may email her at Doc.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our thoughts and prayers are with every family. Please stay safe and healthy by following all CDC recommendations.

HSSC is excited to announce that the Spring TOPSoccer Season will run from March 6 through May 8, 2020 at William G. “Doc” Myers Park in Hobe Sound. TOPSoccer is a community-based outreach program designed to meet the needs of children with physical and/or mental disabilities. Player participation and development are key elements of the program. Players will be placed on teams according to physical and cognitive ability, not necessarily by age. TOPSoccer is designed to improve the overall fitness, self-esteem, and social skills of the participating athletes.
Your help with the TOPSoccer outreach program would be greatly appreciated! Opening your hearts and giving of your time will have a direct impact on these children’s lives.
About the Academy – All-Star Academy is a 12-week recreational soccer program for players 8u–17u years old (2001-2012). Participants in the academy play in the Treasure Coast Soccer League’s Development Pathway League (DPL). DPL is designed to continue the development of a young player’s technical skills and soccer knowledge while building confidence on the field. Generally, All-Star Academy players have already been identified by HSSC Staff members as high-potential, up-and-coming stars.
Registration Fee - $185.00 Includes an All-Star jersey and soccer ball. Payment plan (up to 2 installments) may be available depending on the date of registration. Full payment is required before the first All-Star games begin.
Program Details – Jan 13 – April 20, 2020. Practices are scheduled for Mondays & Wednesdays from 6:00pm - 7:30pm at William G. “Doc” Myers Park.
Training - One training session a week will be given by a USSF/ European-licensed coach, and one session a week will be coached by a parent-volunteer. Parent-volunteer coaches from the previous HSSC Fall recreational season may coach for the Spring season, and new parent volunteers may register as a volunteer during the registration process. All-star Academy participants train twice each week, and play either a bi-monthly Treasure Coast Soccer League (TCSL) Jamboree for U9’s, or a Development Pathway League (DPL) game every weekend, for ages U10 & up.
We strive to train all players with other participants equivalent in skill level. As a result, there may be COED teams and/or select players asked to play up to ensure competitive play.
Micro Academy – This is an 8-week recreational soccer program for children ages 4 to 8 years old. Ideal for both new and experienced players, HSSC coaches will build on skills learned during the Fall season. Coaches will give players the opportunity to develop their talents using the “play, practice, play” training model while cultivating a love for the game. Young players love this model because it promotes more game time and fewer drills. Groups are based on age and ability, with a ratio no greater than 1 (coach): 12 (players). Players can expect lots of touches on the ball which is great for overall personal development in a safe fun environment.
Registration Fee - $89.00 includes a Micro Academy jersey or t-shirt and a soccer ball. Payment plan (up to 2 installments) may be available depending on the date of registration. Full payment is required before the first practice begins.
Program Details – Feb. 26th – April 20th, practice on Wednesday evenings 5:45pm – 6:45pm, Games on Saturday mornings 9:30am – 10:30am. William G “Doc” Myers Park.
