Most of the girls only teams will play in GHSL as they did in previous years. Our girl's program, already largest in the area, continues to grow year after year.
For 2017/2018 season we will are looking to form even more girls only teams in following divisions (if there are enough interested volunteer parent coaches):
U6 – players born in 2012 (possibly COED)
U8 – 2010s and 2011s
U10 – 2008s and 2009s
U12 – 2006s and 2007s
U14 – 2004s and 2005s
U16 – 2002s and 2003s
U18 – 2000s and 2001s
We are also continuing to grow our 2005/06 Competitive Team and starting at least one new "Travel" Team for 2001/2002 players.
If there is interest and commitment we are willing to open a Competitive Girls Team at any age division.
Don't let the word "travel" scare you - all games are played in tri-county and at least half the games are on home fields.
I think there are lots of parents with girls who might flourish on a girls only team, but they or their daughters have doubts or do not understand what the girl's program is about. I remember that my daughter was ready to give up on soccer, but after last year, it has moved to (and consistently remains at) the top of her list. That is the message we need to convey.
Girls GHSL Program
The Hollywood Wildcats is proud to share that the Girls Program with the Greater Hollywood Soccer League (GHSL) for the past 3 seasons was a great success.
We look forward to an even better 2017/2017 season.
Practices begin in August/September and they will continue through the end of the scheduled games in the Greater Hollywood Soccer League (middle of March 2018). During this season we will have breaks for the holidays. This is not a travel program, but half of the games do take place at other teams fields. These cities are close to the Hollywood area like Miramar, Hallandale, and Pembroke Pines. All practices and home games will be held at Dowdy and Boggs Field. This year we are looking to form U8, U10, U12, U14, U16 and U18 girls teams, multiple in same divisions if players and volunteer coaches are available.
Girls that do not want to be part of this program can always play in the regular Wildcats co-ed recreational program.
The GHSL is one of the oldest soccer leagues in South Florida. Participating clubs are located in Northern Miami-Dade and South Broward counties, from the beaches to Miramar and Pembroke Pines. GHSL is a sanctioned league by the Florida Youth Soccer Association (FYSA). It is the only FYSA sanctioned soccer league that offers inter-city “recreational” travel play in our area.
By participating in the GHSL, our girl players will be able to experience more competitive and challenging play on an all-girl team. There is minimal travel involved. Half of the games will be played at home and half at nearby clubs’ fields. Coaches may schedule additional friendly scrimmages with other clubs for fun and additional opportunities the for player and team development.
All girls in the U8-U18 divisions, regardless of skill set, are welcomed to participate. Since there are limited spots on each team, please take into consideration what your daughter’s commitment capabilities are. It is difficult on the team if a player is unable to participate regularly. If we register more girls than roster maximums alow we might have to turn some players away or find them an alternative teams to play on, as available.
