Soccer Info

Updated September 19, 2021

We had a fabulous opening day on Saturday the 18th, albeit a sweltering one.  I'm happy to not e that cooler temperatures are predicted to be on the way for this week.  Some rain mid-week may cause some practice concerns. but the long range forecasy for Saturday the 25th is sunny and a high of 76 degrees.  Yes, please!

Picture Day Saturday, September 25th:  Next Saturday is picture day.  Directly after each game, the teams will all meet up near the HYR entrance for team pictures.  Please have the kids brush their teeth and floss so that they can flash those pearly whites for the camera.  Many of these pictures will make it in to their photo montage at their wedding rehearsal dinner many years from now, so let's make sure they look their best.   For any player who is missing on the 25th, we will get their picyture in a subsequest week, and dub them in to the team picture.  It is not perfect, but often surprisingly better than you would expect. 

Team Shirts:   There have been a ton of last minute additions to the league.  In accommodating those additions, some teams did not have anough shirts for opening day.  I have asked the coaches to let me knw their re-orders early so we can get the next batch of shirts in.  We have sent a request to the coaches to tell me what shirts they need for their teams, and we will use that to get the re-order right please communicate all shirt requests through the coach rather than the league director.  Thanks. .  If your player has not received a team shirt yet or has not recived one the right size, please have your player wear a shirt of their own as close to the team colors as possible. The team colors can be seen below:

NO HYR Picnic this fall:  Out of pendemic concerns, our fall picnic has been canceled.  We hope the conditions are right to host one in the spring.  

LOCATION - ATHERTON HIGH SCHOOL:    For all players registered, all practices and games are at Atherton High School.  There are 2 entrances to Atherton.  Please look at the map below.  The GPS is 3000 Dundee Road .  HYR has been requested to park in the teacher parking lot.  (If you pull in by the gymnasium and the tennis courts, you are at the wrong entrance.)  Please park only in approved parking spaces.
