HYR is an outreach of Highlands Community Ministries in Louisville, Kentucky. We offer recreational soccer and baseball for girls and boys ages 4-17.

Steering Committee

HYR is operated and administered by a director with the guidance and assistance of a steering committee.  The steering committee consists of volunteers, and is involved in everything from team-building, field and goal maintenance, to referee oversight.

The director and steering committee are always happy to assist you.

Patrick Fitzgerald, HYR Director

Patrick has been involved in HYR for 20 years (the first five and the most recent 15), first as a player, and then years later as a parent of four children playing soccer and baseball, and as a steering committee member. Patrick has been HYR director since December, 2016.
