Youth Academy - Humble/Atascocita
Who can play?
Any Boy or Girl born 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010 is welcome.
Teams are split by gender & ability, following evaluations in the first few weeks of training. The goal is to place each player in an environment that is suitably challenging, but allows opportunity for success and confidence building.
Under no circumstances do parents dictate or influence our team selection.
Players train twice per week with our professionally licensed coaches at our Humble location.
Bring the following to every training session and game:
- Inflated soccer ball (size 3 for 2013s/ 2012s, size 4 for 2010s/2011s)
- Large water bottle
- Shin guards (under long soccer socks)
- Soccer cleats (with laces tied in double-knot)
