To provide through encouragement, instruction and example an opportunity for the youth and adults of Aberdeen and surrounding communities to participate in an organized soccer program that will promote sportsmanship, aide physical development and fitness and teach teamwork within a competitive environment.
The Hub City Soccer Club was founded in 1986 as the Aberdeen Soccer Association. At that time only one season in the spring was played and just a few hundred children were involved with the league. By 1990, the fall season was added and more than one thousand area youth were playing one or both seasons. In 1991, the league added the city tournament for each season for all players 10 years and older. The area high school athletes gained the opportunity to participate in soccer within their high schools in 1997, when the Aberdeen schools approved soccer as a high school letter sport. And in 2010, the Northern Blast Soccer Club, a local competitive league, joined forces with the Aberdeen Soccer Association and the organization was renamed Hub City Soccer Club.
As involvement in the organization has grown, so too have the operations and facilities. The Moccasin Creek Soccer Complex was completed in the fall of 1992 and within a year it was clear expansion was needed. By 2000 additional conveniences and fields were added. Operationally the organization is governed by a Board of Directors who are elected at the annual general meeting. League commissioners and other administrators are also elected. In 2010, the club recognized the need to hire its first employee and brought on a Technical Director. The club’s offices have most recently moved to Berkshire Plaza, which marked the fourth move for the club.
Today, The Hub City Soccer Club serves thousands of youth and adult soccer players in both recreational and competitive leagues.
