Hewlett-Lawrence Soccer Club (HLSC), is the largest youth sports organization in the Five Towns that offers professional training and high quality programs. HLSC saw an increase in participation over the past year — a figure I believe was indicative of the growing interest in soccer across the United States the excitement generated by the 2014 FIFA World Cup in addition to my ever increasing role as director of coaching.
In 2014, HLSC saw its registration grow with significant increases in the summer, fall and winter programs. The growth included new players and players returning to the club. The year featured added awareness of the game through a highly talked about FIFA World Cup, the continued expansion of professional soccer in the area (NY Cosmos and New York City FC) and the re-introduction of the Sunday afternoon league for 1st-4th grade boys. The club was able to add 10 new teams and also saw an increase in volunteer contribution.
Parents are starting to see the game of soccer and HLSC as perfect place for their children to learn teamwork in a fun educational setting, which translates into a more active youth and stronger community. As we start a new calendar year I am obviously delighted with the growth seen by HLSC, which continues to feature improved team play, events, educational programs and opportunities for all children in the Five Towns to have fun playing soccer. As we begin 2015, I expect it will be another exciting year for the club.
HLSC is proud to be the “Club for ALL Kids,” and it offers several programs to meet the needs of any youth player — from beginners to recreational players to competitive players looking to continue their careers at the Middle School, High School, and even college levels.
On behalf of the Hewlett Lawrence Soccer club I thank you for your continued support as we continue to raise the standards of soccer in the area.
I look forward to seeing you on the field. Happy New Year to All HLSC Families and friends.
HLSC Director of Coaching
