Founded in 1991
The Adelaide Hills Soccer Club was formed in 1991 by the Adelaide Hills Junior Soccer Association. In its first year of operation the club fielded only one team in teh U/16 age group.
In 1995 the club entered teams in the U/19 and U/23 competitions and in 1998 it entered a senior team into the SASF State League.
In 2004 the young club surprised everyone when it won promotion to the Premier League. The club considered remaining in the State League as it believed it was not ready for the Premier League and would not be competitive as it did not pay its senior players. However it opted to move up into the Premier League in order to gain valuable experience for its very young side. Adelaide Hills performed well in the Premier League though, as expected, the finished last and were relegated.
In 2002 the club acquired an area in the Woodside Complex in the Adelaide Hills and is gradually developing a first class pitch and clubrooms.
