The Director’s Cut, Vol. 17

The Director’s Cut, Vol. 17

April is the month of transition.  We go from Spring to Summer, rain to sunshine, School Soccer to Club.  HVS is also in transition as we prepare for our move to MLS NEXT, DPL, and NPL.

Last month MLS NEXT announced HVS as the first new club added to the league for 2021.  We are the only club in the state that will be playing at the highest level of youth soccer in North America.  We are also adding 2nd teams in all age groups U13 and older for our boy’s teams.  These 2nd teams will play in the NPL South Atlantic

The Development Players League (DPL) has accepted our girl’s teams into the league for 2021.  This league is highly competitive and is a stepping-stone to the GA (highest girls league in USA). We will work hard to earn promotion for 2022.

Our staff is also being upgraded.  Here is a list of coaches for our 2021/22 season.
