About Hills Spirit Football Club
The Hills Spirit Football Club is an incorporated association registered as a community soccer club in the Hills District and is governed by an elected Executive Committee. The Hills Spirit Football Club has a proud 42 year tradition of building teams from the local Catholic Schools. The Club was originally created from OLOR Kellyville and was joined by St Angela’s Castle Hill, then Our Lady of the Angels Rouse Hill & now John XXIII Stanhope. The club has grown in size and now welcomes members from all over our local community.
In 2020 we moved from Memorial Ave to our brand new grounds in Arnold Ave, Kellyville. Our club has grown to over 500 players including over 80 funskills players, 8 AAM teams, a strong PYL team and an ever growing female contingent.
In 2022 we introduced our new strip and welcomed some new sponsors on board. We enjoyed a full season of competition.
In 2023 we celebrated our 45th year! We celebrated with a number of fun events and enjoyed a very successful season. We look forward to seeing what Season 2024 has in store!
We welcome new players and teams to our club so please visit our Register to Play page for more information.
The mission of the Hills Spirit FC is to maintain our tradition of fun, friendship and community values. The club aims to provide personal enjoyment and to enhance the social skills, life skills and football skills of our club community, and to provide as many opportunities as possible for them to play football
We are a club of integrity, honesty and respect, and we provide a fun, friendly family atmosphere for all our players, parents, officials and volunteers. We will work together with the local community to ensure the future of our club. Through our hard work and dedication to provide a fun and harmonious environment we will retain our current players and recruit new players from the local schools and the local community to play at our club.
The Hills Spirit FC aspires to provide an enjoyable, high quality sporting and educational experience for all our players.
Through the principles of positive coaching, supportd by the core values of friendship, acceptance, teamwork and respect, all Hills Spirit FC players will have fun and build lasting friendships through their association with the club.
All players will feel like an important part of their team regardless of performance or skill-level, learn important ‘life lessons’ that have lasting value beyond soccer and the playing field, as well as learn the skills, tactics and strategies of football to improve as players.
Friendship and Inclusion
Whilst winning is always more fun and we are a competitive football club, we value participation and ensure that everyone has an opportunity to be their best. The Club attempts to strike a balance between competitiveness and inclusiveness; providing grading of teams from U9 and up.
We are a community club relying on the generosity and commitments from a dedicated group of volunteers. Our players are recruited from across the Hills District, with friendship and unity being core strengths of the club.
Integrity and Respect
Our club officials, coaches & managers, parents and players will deal with one another and our competition with the upmost respect. We will act with integrity at all times whilst representing our club and interacting with others.
Whilst recognising on field ability and results increases personal satifaction, as a club we value personal development and life skills as well as developing football skills. Integral to our core beliefs is for our players to develop important life skills that extend beyond the playing field.
Unity and Positive Behaviour
As a community based club, we value the unity from within our local community and the coming together as a football community to make decisions in the best interest of our club, players and parents. We value the positive behaviour of everyone involved in our club, and we will pro-actively address negative behaviour within the club to ensure unity with our footballing community.
Our club is focused on building a strong and positive culture based on the core elements of Respect (for team mates, opposition, officials and volunteers…everyone), Safety (players and members is a top priority), Confidence (make a positive impact on our club and community), Humility (win and lose with grace), and Responsibility (we are all accountable for our own actions and areas of responsibility).
Our club values leadership – we don’t stand by but instead we help address the situation. We are all mentors and have key attributes to share with others within our club.
