All practices and games are at Atherton High School 3000 Dundee Road. 

Practices are scheduled for Monday through Friday night at Atherton. If we get practices rained out on any nights we may have some availability to reschedule, and we will communicate with the coaches to let them know what is available.  Please note that there are 2 entrances to Atherton, so check the map below if you have never been there before.

HYR Equipment Collection And Distribution -
Every season, HYR collects gently used cleats and helps them find a new home on the feet of a new player.  We have largely been cleaned out this season, but we will have a table set up near the entrance where you can drop off outgrown cleats or possibly find ones your player can use for this season.  

HYR Volunteer Opportunities:
Volunteers help HYR run smoothly.  Please review the available slots on the signup link, check your own calendar, and sign up to help.  Additionally, if you have time that you are available to help when there is not a signup listed, we can often still use your help.  (Especially the week leading up to the season and the and the first week of the season during the traditional work day. ) Please contact Patrick  ([email protected]) to propose a time you are available. .

HYR Team Shirt theme for fall 2022
The theme for the fall teams is visual art.  For many of the younger players, their team names will be based on types of art or public art and architecture.  For older players, we focus on visual artists themselves and some of their works.  We tried very hard to have a wide representation and inclusion of classics, modern artists and diversity of gender race, national origin, etc.  To see a sneak preview of the artwork, click below.

What is Hill Rolling?

During Spring and Fall soccer, the Atherton campus has these glorious hills between the field levels.  Kids have always rolled down the hills for fun, so in 2017, we formalized it. At noon on game days, the director blows an air horn, in between the division 2 and division 3 fields, and kids and adults come from across any field to roll down the hill for a couple minutes.  It’s sort of a reminder that soccer is just a game, and we are all there to just have a little fun.  And like in the last question, just roll with it.  (Pun intended)

Team Name Themes for 2022 Fall Soccer
We do have an over 5-year tradition of unusual team names.  My basic rules tend to be not to use any team name that is in use by professional and college teams (bulldogs, tigers, etc.), never repeat team  names (We have now gone over 5 years without a repeat), and have the team names be fun, and occasionally informative. 
In the fall of 2022, the team names will be based on visual art. Stay Tuned for more details.
