FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What if I can't make tryouts?

Players that cannot attend tryouts will to:

  1. Register for tryouts
  2. After registering for tryouts, players will need to fill out this form: CLICK HERE

Families may then connect with their respective directors.

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.  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
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.

Does HVS affect the U8-U11 age groups?

No!  HVS age groups are U12-U19.  VHSC will have competitive teams in ALL AGE GROUPS U8-U19!

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.
