Why Forest Hills Athletic Club?
There are numerous sport opportunities for your son or daughter to participate in throughout the year. Finding the best club or organization is often the hardest part. Here are several reasons that make FHAC the best choice for parents looking for a competitive football and cheerleading experience for their children.
Consistent Game Times
Games are played on Saturday’s at the same time. We host five home games per season and play five away games. We often host postseason league playoffs or the league super bowl. We annually play preseason bowl games, usually one at home and one away. Season runs late July thru mid-November.
Cheerleaders participate in the league exhibition, as well as other local cheerleading competitions.
The art equipment (Riddell Concussion Helmets). Personalized football jerseys and new cheerleading uniforms.
Safest Fields in the United States
We practice and play our home games at the Riverside Park Turf Facility, providing us the safest playing surface in the United States per GMAX ratings, and lights to ensure practice times are consistent. Head coaches are allowed to practice their team no more than three time per week. Practices are held M, T, and TH from 6-8:00 p.m. (some teams only practice T and TH).
Teaching Competition – Guaranteed Playing Time for Youger Players
Our Coaches dedicate their time to help players develop the skills to be competitive and have fun. Players aged 5 thru 8 receive guaranteed playing time. This ensures our athletes are well prepared to compete for playing time on the older teams, as well as at the middle school, and high school levels.
Head Coaches are interviewed by the FHAC Board, certified by the National Youth Sports Association, and have extensive playing backgrounds (many are former college players). All coaches must pass a OHIO BCI Background Check, be CPR certified, and annually participate in Coaching Clinics to get the most current facts an best practices. All FHAC Coaches are USA Football certified.
We provide a mentoring program for our younger players and operate as a unified organization, not just individual teams. Our coaching staffs work with each other to ease the transition to higher competition levels. We also offer area high school cheerleaders and football players the opportunity to be coaches aides.
Support for our local high schools. In the past we have donated over $16,000.00 towards the turf fields at Anderson and Turpin High Schools.
Participate with numerous charities to educate our youth on what it means to give back. We also participate with the Domato Peko Foundation in donating used equipment to those youth who are less fortunate.
