SPECIAL REPORT TO BLOWING ROCK NEWS FROM HIGH COUNTRY SOCCER ASSOCIATION. By Rick Suyao. March 9, 2019. BOONE, NC – High Country Soccer Adult League, in partnership with Appalachian Mountain Brewery (AMB), is excited to offer the AMB Spring Adult Premier Soccer League. 

The AMB Premier League offers is a fun way to stay active and kick the ball around a little while offering three levels of league play; Bronze, Silver and Gold.  The skill levels of the players in the AMB Premier League range from recreational players (Bronze) to highly competitive and former collegiate players (Gold Division). HCSA currently serves more than 300 adult soccer players (in addition to offering youth training) in the NC High Country. The Boone-based soccer club is always searching for new ways to continue building the local soccer community to include all players and skill levels.

The AMB Premier League is a 7v7 league played on half of a regulation soccer field going across the field. Each team is comprised of 7-12 players. If you don’t have a team, visit the HCSA website at and sign up as a free agent to be placed on an existing team at your requested level of play.

The registration deadline for the AMB Premier League is March 14, and the season runs from March 17 to early June. Each team will play a minimum of eight league games with each league having a playoffformat based off the number of teams in the league.
