A pathway defined by the player

There is no one way to get to a destination and everyone at Hershey Soccer believes having options in front of you helps you relax and enjoy the ride.

Hershey Soccer Club is focused on four key pathways that our programming is based around Community soccer (Recreational), Competitive soccer (Travel), Collegiate and Semi-Pro. Each pathway is supplemented with additional programs such as trailblazers, Elite technical training, Futsal and Player360 (coming soon)

Each path will present itself in different ways dependent on your child's age and also also level of experience.
