With our 1st teams moving into MLS NEXT, moving our 2nd teams to the NPL was a logical progression. Providing more opportunity for players to compete at the regional and national level is what we want for our club. HVS players who play on our NPL teams may also have opportunities to train and play with our MLS NEXT teams.

HVS played in the NPL this past year so we know what a strong league this is. Being able to provide more players with this level of competition is a great step for our community.

Tomas Fox, Hoover-Vestavia Soccer, Co-Executive Director

Our goal has been to build a partnership that provides quality training and competition for young soccer players in our area. We are excited to know the NPL recognizes the strength and depth of our club and invited us to enter our second teams.
