RE: CLUB ANNOUNCEMENT - A CHANGE IN COVID REPORTING
Although variants of the virus that causes COVID-19 continue to circulate, we know much more about the virus and the disease it causes. Importantly, we now have widely available vaccines and treatments for COVID-19. Given the availability of this knowledge, along with several prevention and treatment options, we feel comfortable ending our active monitoring of COVID-19 within the club and terminating the COVID-19 portal.
We appreciate your cooperation and understanding over the past 2 years as we all navigated changes due to COVID-19. As a club, we have worked hard to be responsible citizens and do our part in the community to reduce the transmission of COVID-19 while also allowing our players to continue to play.
Importantly, viruses causing COVID-19 along with several other respiratory viruses are highly transmissible and currently circulating. Their presence will likely continue to increase as we go through the fall season. So, as we enter a new playing season, we ask that you review the policies below to ensure we are all doing our part to keep our players healthy and our teams playing.
DIRECTIONS FOR FAMILIES
Monitor your child for symptoms. Do NOT bring a player to practice that has ANY symptoms of illness (even if you think it is just allergies). Coaches will understand. Being cautious about your child’s health is the best course of action for every team.
- If your player tests positive for COVID-19:
- Notify your coach.
- Do not participate in club events (games, practices, etc.) for 5 days from the onset of symptoms.
- Your player may return on day 6 if he or she is symptom-free.
- Please tell your child to NOT share water bottles. Sharing of water bottles can quickly spread illness to several players on a team.
DIRECTIONS FOR COACHES
- Remind your players to not come to practice if they have any symptoms of illness. Reassure players they will not be punished for missing practice/games to encourage responsible behaviours.
- Note: we are shutting down the portal, so there is no more reporting to the club.
- Players reporting symptoms should stay home until they are symptom-free.
- Players that report testing positive for COVID-19 must refrain from club activities for 5 days from onset of symptoms. They may return on day 6 IF they are symptom-free.
- Tell players that sharing of water bottles is NOT allowed. This is just best practice to limit the spread of any disease.

BIRMINGHAM - Hoover-Vestavia Soccer is excited to announce new affiliations with two local soccer clubs. Trussville United Soccer Club and Pell City Futbol Club have joined as affiliate partners with HVS. This partnership now gives players of both clubs direct access to MLSNEXT, NPL, and DPL training and match play.
This opportunity will enhance both programs by having additional resources available from HVS to service the exceptional players that TUSC and PCFC develop.
Trussville United President Eddy Nalley says, “Over the past decade the soccer landscape in the Birmingham metro area has drastically changed. With the introduction of several new high level programs Trussville United has not been able to provide a similar pathway to compete at such levels. This affiliation will provide our players a chance to compete at a much higher level without having to leave their community club and friends to do so.”
Pell City Executive Director Shane Bell says, “We are very excited about our affiliation with HVS. Pell City FC’s primary focus is to develop our players to be competitive on top-level teams. By working with the staff and coaches of HVS, we are taking additional steps to help our players transition into the next level of soccer.”
HVS Director of Coaching Mike Getman states, “We are very excited to affiliate with Trussville United and Pell City. They have great programs with fantastic coaches and players. Working together I am confident we can help even more players reach their goals.”
The HVS Affiliate Program allows local clubs to align themselves with proven soccer professionals, who’s programming can provide a higher level of play then the player would get with their current club. The HVS Affiliate Program allows players to participate with HVS, all while still playing for their current club.
There are three levels of player participation, Club Zero, where players can train with HVS teams at no cost, Club One, where the players primary team is their club, and Club Two, where the players primary team is HVS.
The HVS Affiliate Program allows players to return to their clubs for regular season matches, State Cup, Regionals, and tournaments. At the same time, it allows the affiliate clubs to provide a pathway to higher competition. Additionally, all affiliated clubs are provided coaching clinics and special topics player sessions, at their venue- staffed by HVS staff.
HVS is dedicated to the development of top-class youth players in the state of Alabama. Many professional and U.S. National Team players have come through the Hoover and Vestavia Hills Soccer Clubs, including Chris Richards, Brandon Servania, and JJ Williams.
