Alabama High School Soccer

      The very first state championship held by the AHSAA for soccer happened in 1991 with Vestavia Hills claiming the title for 6A and Gadsden taking home the trophy for the 1A-5A classifications.

    While soccer had grown in popularity and was played across the state by high schools since the 1970s it took a few years to become sanctioned by the AHSAA.

    Soccer continues to grow in popularity statewide but has been mostly dominated by the private schools especially in the lower classifications.

    Today the AHSAA has five classifications with 1A-3A combined.

    Following years of research, in June of 2007 the website became a reality. Many people have gotten involved to assist us  with research of the schools and teams to make this a reality.

    Other team sports have joined football as a part of our research. Initially will include information about coaches, state playoffs, all state teams, player awards and team records.

    It is virtually impossible to provide scores for every  game for every team. Who knows, later even that may be a possibility. There is still a lot of work to do with the all state teams of years past but our intentions are to find every team.

    We encourage everyone to get involved in helping us provide the most accurate information possible. If you have information that would be useful to us please let us know.
