Who are we?

For the past 39 years the New Hyde Park Wildcats Soccer Club has been offering boys and girls a chance to play soccer at a myriad of different levels. We offer programs from youth intramural programs that begin at age 3, to high level travel programs beginning at U8 and reaching U19. 

Our mission is to provide a fun, high-quality, community-based soccer experience for children at all skill levels in the New Hyde Park area and adjoining neighborhoods. The club emphasizes player development in a competitive environment and seeks to instill a love of the sport of soccer in its members by providing a positive and challenging soccer environment. All players shall be given the opportunity to develop their abilities to maximum levels through the club’s programs. Micro, Intramural, Developmental, TOP Soccer, Training Affiliations, and Travel. We are proud to be a volunteer-run organization. Many of our players come back to help out as coaches and referees.  If you are interested in volunteering, please contact us.
