Hopewell Area Soccer Association had it’s origin in 1981 when Dave Morgan and a few friends took their boys and registered them in Moon Soccer. The following year three teams formed from players from Hopewell and registered in Moon. The number of boys and girls wanting to play soccer increased by 1983 and Hopewell Soccer Club was formed with Dave Morgan as the founder and first president.
The first players and teams registered under Hopewell Soccer Club were co-ed in the U-10 through U-14 age groups. They played on what is now the soccer and practice football fields at the high school, no grass and a lot of stones but the youth of Hopewell began flocking to soccer.
1985 brought a need to find a new location for both the in-house and travel teams. The club began playing on a field on Todd road, just past Green Garden Plaza. In-house played Saturdays and travel teams played Sunday afternoons.

The number of youth playing continued to grow, by 1988 over 300 youth players were registered under Hopewell Soccer. That same year HSC made the decision to eliminate co-ed play in the U-8 age groups through U-19 giving way to the girls program which led to the girls high school team. The boys high school team had been started in 1983.
1988 brought a first to not only Hopewell Soccer but to soccer in Western Pennsylvania. With the numbers continuing to grow ,the club with loans from twenty to twenty-five trusting parents, the club purchased 10 acres of land on Service Creek Road. The next three years the club raised money to pay back the loans and to develop the property into four regulation size soccer fields. The fields were opened for play in the fall of 1991. The club became the first in Western Pa. to own their own fields.
The number of youth players continued to increase to a high of 700+ in the mid and late 1990s. The club is proud of other successes as well. Many tournaments have been held, both Point Park College and the Pittsburgh Riverhounds have utilized the complex as practice fields. Tony Meola , world cup goal keeper, held two instructional sessions. Classic teams are currently using the fields, giving our youth the ability to participate at higher levels.
Many officers, volunteers and players have passed through HSC since 1981. Each being a positive influence on the club and the youth of the Hopewell area. Many players have gone on to play college soccer. 
The success of HSC goes to show what can be accomplished when people come together for the youth of the community.
Please carry on the tradition!!!!
Yours in Soccer.
