Hobby Expense Credit

I play recreation soccer throughout the year. Each season costs from $50 - $65. I am on 2 teams. There are four seasons per year.
Can I claim this expense as a Hobby Expense credit on my Federal Income tax?
Are recreation sports considered a "Hobby" by the IRS?
Also can the gear bought for this hobby be claimed?
