What is the HPL?
The Wechsel High Performance League is a new Saturday League affiliated to Hampshire FA, operating across the South Coast Region. The league was first launched in the 2018/19 season for strong grassroots teams striving for competitive fixtures in a development focused environment.
In this current season, we are running divisions for the Under-8 to Under-13 age groups, with fixtures taking place every other Saturday morning. Planned age groups for 2020/21 season will run from Under-8 to Under-14.
The league is focused on delivering high quality fixtures, with the main priority being on player development. These fixtures should be used as a learning tool for players, allowing them to play in new positions and formations, which in addition to their Sunday football, will enhance their footballing development. The league demands a POSITIVE environment to take the pressure off players to allow them to have the freedom to make decisions, learn from mistakes and try new things with no fear.
