Boys’ soccer at The Hill dates back to World War I, when a group of boys’ formed the School’s first official team in the fall of 1916. Traditionally a very popular fall sport at The Hill, boys’ soccer teams are fielded every year at the varsity, JV, and thirds levels; some years, there are enough players to form a fourths team, giving every boy who is interested the opportunity to play interscholastic soccer.

The Hill’s campus features several soccer fields. The varsity team’s practice facilities rival those of top collegiate programs. Several grids designed for small-sided possession games are adjacent to the main practice field, as well as an 18 yard box area for goalkeeper work with the team’s full-time goalkeeping coach. A designated match-only pitch is located in the middle of campus, which makes for ideal match conditions.

The School’s location in suburban-Philadelphia allows Hill to compete against some of the best competition in the country. We seek to play the best possible teams in order to become better ourselves; every season’s schedule features no less than two nationally ranked and five regionally ranked teams. The Hill is a member of the highly competitive Mid-Atlantic Prep League, and we annually play five of the six teams of the incredibly strong Philadelphia Inter-Ac League. Other non-league opponents include a pre-season trip to the Washington, DC area for two matches against strong DC day schools; several opponents from the Philadelphia Friends School League; and some of the top teams in New Jersey, including perennial national power St. Benedict’s School. At the end of the season, Hill competes in the Pennsylvania Independent School Athletic Association (PAISAA) State Championship Tournament, comprised of that season’s 16-best independent school teams in the state.
 
The 2013 team achieved unprecedented success and earned several accolades on both the local and national levels, finishing with a 19-1 record to set a program record for season wins.  In addition to winning the third-consecutive MAPL Championship and the PAISAA Championship, Hill finished the season as the co-top-ranked Prep program in the United States, a ranking the team held for the majority of the season.  The team's most heralded individual was Colten Habecker '14, who set both single-season (34) and career (60) goal scoring records; was the MAPL Player of the Year; became the second-consecutive Hill player to be named the All-Area Player of the Year; and played in the High School All-American match.  Eight of the 11 players in the starting lineup for the PAISAA Championship were named to the All-Area team, and four players earned All-MAPL status.  The season concluded with the bi-annual trip to Ireland and England, in which the team finished with a 3-0-1 record.
