Soccer will give your child a great opportunity to learn about life and its experience in a POSITIVE & DEVELOPMENTAL atmosphere.
Players will learn how to operate in a team dynamic and how to push oneself to the next level as an individual... and how to help oneself reach his or her own goals by HELPING OTHERS!
How much does it cost?
Vestavia Hills Soccer Club offers competitive pricing for Recreational and Competitive Soccer in the Greater Birmingham area.
Please visit our pricing page for more details for recreational pricing and please call our office for competitive team pricing for the year.
What age group is my child in?
Age group determination can be a tricky question? With the current Age Group Chart, player age groups are determined by DOB from August 1 through July 31 of each year.
There are discussions with US Soccer called Player Development Initiatives that may shift these age group determination dates to January 1 through December 31 of each year...
These new guidelines (which are NOT used currently) would be considered true birth year age groups... If you are born in 2000, you are a true 2000, etc..
But for now, you can view the CURRENT age group chart for 2016 by clicking on RESOURCES!
What is the commitment for competitive soccer?
Players joining competitive soccer sign up and commit to the following:
U9-U14 Players: Year Round Soccer
U15 and Older Players
Play Club Soccer in the Fall Season Only
Play High School Soccer in the Spring
As we all grew up playing multiple sports, we encourage families to plan their schedules logically as in today's world, the kids or families just can't do everything. It is important to allow the players to focus and gain confidence in sports, so we encourage you NOT to do EVERYTHING!
Players must be kids, do well in school, rest, and of course... PLAY SOCCER!
It is important to note that our first teams are comprised of fully committed soccer players (where soccer comes first before other sports).
We have both Division 1 and Division 2 teams.
Division 1 teams training 3X per week
Division 2 teams train 2X per week
Please give us a call if you have any questions regarding any of these questions.
Do I have to renew my registration each season?
Both Recreational & Competitive players are required to renew their registration each season they are playing at Vestavia Hills Soccer Club.
Players will register with GOTSoccer each season. Please see our Registration Page for more information!
What age can my child play on a competitive team?
Players can participate in the U8 Pele All Star Program which kicks off the bridge program between recreational and competitive soccer programs.
U9 Begins our first competitive team experience at Vestavia Hills Soccer Club. Players can join at any age 8 and up! Oh yeah, you don't have to start out at U9, but we encourage families and players to join the competitive training program at an early age to take advantage of the younger years and instilling great habits on the ball in a great training environment!
