Kings Hammer Soccer Club to expand operations to Sycamore Area
Registration for tryouts is now open

COVINGTON, KY (May 19, 2020) – Kings Hammer Soccer Club, one of the largest youth soccer programs in the area, announced today that is expanding its soccer operations to Sycamore, a suburb of Cincinnati.

Tryouts for all ages will begin in May and registration is now available at 

All tryouts, practices, and competitions will be held in accordance with the new standards for youth sports activity adopted by the State of Ohio amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Kings Hammer officials are closely monitoring the work and guidance offered by the state-wide youth sports advisory group to enact these standards.

“We are excited to grow the sport of soccer with player-focused programs for all youth, now in the Sycamore area of Cincinnati,” said Kevin McCloskey of Kings Hammer Soccer Club. “Our Kings Hammer Sycamore coaches look forward to continuing the strong tradition of youth soccer in Sycamore.” More information regarding Kings Hammer Sycamore including staff and coaches’ lists will be released shortly.

In addition to the regionally and nationally recognized Kings Hammer Soccer Academy (KHA), Kings Hammer Soccer Club will offer three community programs to service the Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kings Hammer Sycamore (Sycamore and surrounding areas,) Kings Hammer South (Boone County, Gallatin County, Grant County,) Kings Hammer Central (Hamilton County, Kenton County, Campbell County, and Pendleton County). Additionally, Kings Hammer Bluegrass offers youth soccer programs in central Kentucky.

Each of the three community locations will offer the following programs:

  • Juniors Program (under 4-under 7 ages) – The Kings Hammer Juniors Program is a player-centered program that offers players the opportunity to develop technical fundamentals, balance/agility/coordination, and most importantly a fun and safe learning environment. 
  • Youth Program (under 7-under 10 ages) – The Youth Program is designed for young players that are committed to the sport of soccer. The primary focus of the youth program is player development. Players are placed on age-appropriate pools or teams to allow them to develop in the best environment. These appropriate environments are created to develop and challenge each player based on their current ability. Teams are created through the tryout period.
  • Pre-Academy (under 11-under 19 ages) – The Pre-Academy program is designed to provide players with the opportunity to train and prepare for the journey to our Kings Hammer Academy Program. The Pre-Academy also provides the opportunity for players to play other sports or have other interests outside of soccer. This program is designed to be flexible, convenient, and affordable.

The Pre-Academy is the pathway to Kings Hammer Academy, which is one of the highest levels of development environments in the region. The Academy Program provides elite level coaching, facilities, and competition to its players and teams. Kings Hammer Academy has produced players that have played at the state, regional, national, collegiate, and professional levels.
