RE: Trussville United partners with Vestavia Hills Soccer Club
Trussville United Soccer Club announced today that they have entered into an alliance with Vestavia Hills Soccer Club. This opportunity will enhance the Trussville United Soccer program by having additional resources available from Vestavia to assist with registration, tournaments, sponsorship, and on-field sessions and clinics.
