Which tryout does my son or daughter tryout for? 

Players interested in playing for HVS will register at BOTH sites:  HVS and VHSC.  Upon results of the HVS tryouts, players will be updated in the VHSC tryout system.

What happens if I make an HVS team?

If you make an HVS team, we will update your tryout registration at VHSC... so nothing to worry about.

What is the difference between HVS and VHSC competitive teams?

HVS teams are partnered teams with VHSC and Hoover Soccer Club.  These teams are designed to compete regionally and nationally.  

VHSC teams are our traditionally awesome competitive teams that compete regionally and state wide in the highest level possible.

What happens with VHSC teams now that HVS is here?

Nothing!  We are full steam ahead with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd teams forming where available.  We will still have top teams that compete at the highest level in Alabama.

Does HVS affect the Academy ages?

No!  HVS age groups are U12-U19.  VHSC will have competitive teams in ALL AGE GROUPS U9-U19!

What are the Academy ages and when does full Competitive Soccer with teams begin?

The Academy ages are U9-U11.  There is great flexibility in the Academy with rostering, training, and games.  This is a 'pool' environment and standard practice across the nation for these age groups.

Full Competitive Teams begin at U12 or the 2009 age group for year 2020.  Players will be selected for the competitive teams during tryouts and roster and play within their teams.  The level of the team will determine the league and competition level.

Here is a quick look at the team names what they mean:

  • Black I, II, & III - 1st levels or 'most competitive' teams playing in high competition leagues/divisions
  • White & White II- 2nd level team, playing in lower division



Please review the age group chart to find your program.

We have 2 locations for boys and girls of all ages that are convenient to both highway 280 and highway 31.

  • Central & East Elementary (Highway 31)
  • Liberty Park & the SHAC (Sicard Hollow/Highway 280)

Two youth soccer clubs have partnered to form Hoover-Vestavia Soccer (HVS). Current youth soccer powers Vestavia Hills Soccer Club (VHSC) and Hoover Soccer Club (HSC) have joined forces to form this partnership beginning Fall 2020. HVS will field teams in age groups 2009 through 2003, Boys and Girls. This exciting new strategic alliance will allow elite players in the Birmingham area to develop to their fullest potential.

There will be no change to either club’s Recreational or Academy Programs, and both clubs will still field teams in the Alabama Soccer Association State League. However, under the Hoover- Vestavia Soccer umbrella, elite players from both clubs will now have an avenue to play together at a higher level. Other benefits include a larger pool of top-level coaching, recreational program synergy, and greater exposure to collegiate opportunities. 

Leading this initiative is former UAB Men’s Head Soccer Coach Mike Getman, who will serve as Hoover-Vestavia Soccer’s Director of Coaching. Coach Getman brings with him over twenty years of collegiate experience, and has placed over fifty players in the professional ranks. 

With the partnership, Hoover-Vestavia Soccer will boast access to ten full sized turf fields and sixteen grass fields available to their almost 5,000-member player base. The clubs will also be able to share staff, curriculum, and other resources.

Hoover-Vestavia Soccer tryouts and teams will be open to players from all clubs. Training and game schedules will be coordinated to minimize conflicts, and allow for the best soccer environment possible. 

HVS is  planning Informational Meetings and Talent ID days at the SHAC and at the Hoover Met, which will be scheduled (if possible) based on guidelines provided by the applicable health authorities. More information on the ID dates, staffing, and League play will be released in the next few weeks. is your source for all up-to-date information. 

Hoover-Vestavia tryouts are set for this spring/summer, for the 2020-21 season. You can register for tryouts NOW. All interested players must register on-line, there is no charge. Individual club tryouts (VHSC and HSC) will be held after HVS tryouts.

“Our vision is to create an opportunity for elite players to compete in an elite league without having to leave their hometown. This will allow the Birmingham youth soccer community to participate in a more professionalized model, led by staff committed to holistically developing players.”

Hoover Soccer Club Executive Director Tomas Fox 

“It’s exciting to work together to build something special- something better than what you could accomplish alone. This consolidation at the top level is a national trend in youth soccer, and comes at a time when we all need to work together, more than ever.”

Vestavia Hills Soccer Club Executive Director Rocky Harmon
