We will be holding our annual Little Caesars pizza fundraiser again this year. Each pizza kit or item sold is worth $5 per item. Each family is required to raise $50 total. Any amounts over the $50 fundraiser may be applied to player registration fees. (i.e. if you sell 15 items, 15 x $5 = $75, less $50 fundraiser = $25 that can be applied to player fees).

This is non-transferable (i.e. one family raising extra cannot be transferred to another family). Families of head coaches are not required to pay the fundraiser, however if the fundraiser is used, the amount can be applied to player fees. There will be no cash back if you raise more than the total of your player registration fees or if you raise more than the fundraiser.

We will be collectingthe $50.00 fundraiser payment at time of registration if you are NOTplanning to sell pizzas. If you are selling, the fees will be calculated at the close of the fundraiser and applied accordingly.

Pizza packets will be available at registration. The forms and money must beturned into Chris Davis by Wednesday, March 16, 2016tothe Hibbing High School, Room 310 (Mrs Davis’ room)during school hours ANDagainfrom 4:00-6:00 p.m.

Thepickup/delivery date is Wednesday, March 30, 2016 from noon-4 p.m. at the bus garage. If you are unable to attend registration please make arrangements with Chris Davis, 218-404-6626, to get the forms and information.

Each team would function best if a team parent would volunteer to work with the coach for dispersing information. If you are interested in being a team parent, please volunteer at the time of registration.



Through our parent organization, the Minnesota Youth Soccer Association (MYSA), each of our players is protected by a secondary insurance policy. If a player is injured during a practice or game, the MYSA insurance policy can be used to help defray your medical costs.

This is secondary to your primary insurance. If you have a need to access this extra insurance coverage, please contact one of the board members, or visit the MYSA website at and select “Forms/Rules/Policies”. Then select “Insurance” for more information and forms.

The “ONLY” Exceptions to this rule are:

  • A refund will automatically be issued to a player who cannot be rostered1 with a team.
  • Partial refunds[2] will be made to a player who moves out of the general geographic area prior to the beginning of the playing season[3].

All registration fees from previous season must be paid before a player will be allowed to register for a new season.


Each team is coached by a volunteer adult. Prior coaching experience is not a requirement, but is very helpful. HCSC is promoting coaches training by providing an allowance for training and also making available coaching materials. If you are interested in volunteering to be a coach, please fill out the form at registration. All coaches will receive a coach’s pass after completion of background checks.

A small training fee applies. You will also be required to purchase your own uniform and referee equipment (flags, whistle & stop watch). Scheduling is veryflexible. ADULT REFEREES also needed. More information will be available at registration.


Thanks to some very dedicated parents of our soccer players, the concession stand continues to be a success. Staffing the stand is CRITICAL, so to ensure continued success this summereach family will be expected to donate 1-2 hours of time in the concession stand during the 2016 season. If the staffing of the concession stand becomes a problem,registration fees may increase orfamilies may be expected to write an additional check until they complete their families’ hours. Sign-ups will be at registration and as needed.



Please help us to keep our program a positive and growing activity. If you have ideas contact one of the board members or volunteer for a committee or board position at election time.
