The COVID-19 situation has been a blow to the sports world at all disciplines, ages and levels. Perhaps the most impacted are organizations that provide a place for kids to get exercise, fellowship and experience the joy that sports can bring.
The Hoover Soccer Club (HSC) is a 501(3)c non-profit organization located in Hoover, AL that provides a place for kids ages 3-19 to participate in the game of soccer. We serve the interests of all types of players, from those looking to just have fun to the most competitive of athletes who wish to pursue soccer in high school, college and even at the professional level.
The Jim Richardson COVID-19 Scholarship Fund has been established to assist families in financial need with registration costs at HSC. Dr. James Andrew “Jim” Richardson, father of Andrew Richardson, was a manager for the Hoover Phantoms 2001 team for several years, and as with many other volunteer team managers in the club, he selflessly devoted his time and efforts to help create the best environment for our players to have an opportunity to play the game they love and develop their skills. In the spirit of his memory and the generosity he showed to players in need during his time with HSC, 100% of net funds received from this effort will go to help fund soccer for parents and kids who have been hit the hardest by COVID-19.

We at HSC believe that sports are an integral part of our lives. They build character, provide opportunity and bring joy to millions across the globe. No one embodied and represented these traits better than Jim Richardson. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for supporting our youth and honoring a patron of the sport.
