At the club level, Hall has featured in nine MLS NEXT Pro matches, including six starts, for Inter Miami CF II this season; he started the team's first match of the season, a 2-0 win over Columbus Crew 2 in which he became the youngest starter in the league in its first week. He also featured for Inter Miami’s Academy U-17s at the 2022 Generation adidas Cup, contributing to the team’s run to the semifinals.
