Hurricane Sports offers soccer in the spring. The sport is offered for home schooled students, as well as traditionally schooled students whose school does not offer soccer.
Our season is open for boys and girls at the JV, Varsity levels and Middle School levels. Teams will be filled in the following order: Varsity, Junior Varsity, and Middle School. Tryouts begin the end of January, followed by registration the first part of February. Games begin the middle part of February and continue until the first part of May.
Games are generally no further than 1 hour away, and it is the parents' responsibility to get their athlete to the games, although car pooling is encouraged and often available.

Greenville Hurricanes is pleased to announce our Spring 2019 Soccer tryouts. Please read all the information below and e-mail us with any questions.
When are tryouts?
Tuesday, January 8th, 6:00-8:00 pm (Girls 6:00-7:30pm, Boys 6:30-8:00pm)
Thursday, January 10th, 6:00-8:00 pm (Girls 6:00-7:30pm, Boys 6:30-8:00pm)

Potential Make-up Date
Saturday, January 12th, 10:00am to noon. (Girls 10:00-11:30am, Boys 10:30am-12:00pm)
How many of the tryout dates do I need to attend?
Players should attend as many tryout dates as possible for an adequate evaluation. If returning players have conflicts with the tryout dates, they need to make tryout arrangements with the coaches. Our intent is to announce teams on Saturday 12th, so please attend the earliest available tryouts in case of poor January weather.
Where will tryouts be held?
We will be holding tryouts on fields outside of the Pavilion (400 Scottswood Rd, Taylors). Players are encouraged to arrive early. Tryouts will begin promptly at 6pm (Girls) and 6:30pm (Boys) with organized warmups and stretching.
Will there be someone to answer questions?
The coaching staff will be available for player/parent questions after tryouts, but there will also be administrative personnel at the fields.
What should I bring to tryouts?
Please bring shin guards, cleats, a soccer ball and drinking water. All players are required to wear shin guards during tryouts and practice. There will be plenty of individual drills, so we are asking players to bring their own soccer balls if they already own one. Also, the ONLINE WAIVER must be presented prior to tryouts. This gives us contact information and a medical release for each athlete. Link - bit.ly/HurricanesWaiver
What teams will be offered this spring?
We've had a large tryout participation over the last few seasons, and we are expecting the same this season for both our young men's and young women's teams. Varsity games have been scheduled, and based on player/coach availability, teams will be filled in the following order: Varsity, Junior Varsity, and Middle School. All potential Hurricane and future Hurricane players are encouraged to attend the tryouts. We have used Middle School players on our JV and Varsity teams in the past. However, please be aware that the Junior Varsity teams of our opponents will have 9th & 10th graders on their teams.
What are the recommended ages for tryouts?
Varsity - 8th to 12th grade
Junior Varsity - 6th to 10th grade
Middle School - 6th to 8th grade
