Heartland Soccer Association was formed in 1977 as the Johnson County Soccer League for the purpose of promoting soccer in Johnson County, Kansas.
There were 600 players initially split geographically according to school districts with the Shawnee Mission School District split, due to its size.
The Kansas Premier Soccer League (KPSL) was established a few years later for players who were ready to go to the next level.
In 1995, the KPSL joined Johnson County Soccer as a club and both the leagues became Heartland Soccer Association.
