Where sports meets community!


HYR Philosophy and Expectations

HYR is a community-based developmental league designed to help players develop skills for and love of outdoor play and their sport in particular.   All HYR sports are co-ed and are broken into divisions roughly by age, but more intended to be by skill level to keep the level of competition relatively even within a division. 

HYR does not officially keep score at any of its games.  Many players and parents keep track of the score, and that is okay, but we do not feature a scoreboard.  HYR coaches are instructed to give all players even playing time regardless of skill level.  Of course, coaches will attempt to strategically field a competitive team at all times while using all players. 

HYR coaches are volunteers, and the majority of them are parents of a player on their team.  The fact that the coaches are volunteers keeps HYR costs low.  

HYR parents are expected to stay at practices at games and assist coaches as necessary.  If a parent will be having their child carpool to practice with another family, the parent or guardian bringing the child should assume the responsibility for their own child plus the ones they transport.  In the case of an injury, the coach need not be resposible for locating the parent or guardian. 

HYR has a large population of international players, and values the diversity that brings to the league.  Many of the players have come to HYR through partnerships between HYR and Kentucky Refugee Ministries and the Backside Learning Center.   HYR provides transportation to a large number of players and assists with finding cleats and other soccer equipment for those players.
