Frequently Asked Questions

Highland Park Soccer Association  – New Player Information

HPSA is a volunteer run, not-for-profit, youth soccer club with a 20-year history in Highland Park. We provide a safe environment for girls and boys 8 years old and up to develop their athletic and teamwork skills. With support from coaches and parents, our collective goal is that each young person has fun while learning important life lessons like hard work, perseverance, setting goals, following rules and being a team player. Below is a summary of information for new player.

If you are under 8 years of age, we encourage you to sign up for the Highland Park Recreation Soccer program here


NJ Youth soccer

HPSA is a member of NJ Youth Soccer Assoc. (NJYSA), which sets rules for safety, insurance, and training of coaches and referees. We play in the mid-New Jersey youth soccer league, the next tier above recreational soccer.


Our teams are organized based on age groups and play other girls-only, boys or co-ed teams. As age increases, we move from 7v7 games up to 9v9 and 11v11.


We play a Spring season (mid-March to mid-June) and a fall season (mid-September until late-November). There are 10 games per season, both home and away games. Home games are played in Highland Park. Away games are usually within a 30 minutes drive of Highland Park.


Teams typically have 2 practices each week on school nights. One practice is led by a professional coach from the Red Bull organization and the second practice is led by the team volunteer coach(es).


Player fees are currently $280 per season. This cost is very favorable compared to other travel soccer clubs in our area. HPSA can provide financial aid to eligible families, and we have a simple, confidential application process for these requests. The cost of uniforms for new players is approximately $80.


Being a Head Coach or Assistant Coach is a great volunteer opportunity! All coaches receive training for a coaching license/insurance plus additional training on player safety.


Another important volunteer role for parents is Team Manager. This role organizes player registration, liaises with other teams to schedule games, and provides game details to your team.


Providing a supportive and positive environment is a core value of HPSA. We require that each and every player, coach and parent commit to a S.A.G.E. (Set A Good Example) pledge of good sportsmanship. In addition, we ask that parents ensure players are well-prepared for each practice and game (fed, have water and have the required equipment).
