WHO WE ARE
Long before Christian Cappis and Chris Richards were off to Europe signing professional contracts with Hobro IK and FC Bayern Munich; before the careers of Stuart Holden, Break Shea, Marcus Storey and many others, the Texans were consistently producing top class players. Over the years more than 700 Texans would go on to play at the collegiate level and beyond. The objective has been clear since the club formed nearly 30 years ago: to develop top class players.
The intention is the same today.
Several years of immense growth and change in the Houston soccer community have impacted the youth landscape in a multitude of ways. The level of the game has improved, and the game has grown. The pathway to become a professional player has narrowed. While clubs continue to grow, merge and reduce the choices for the youth in our community, we are intent on defining the Select soccer experience.
We believe that fostering positive relationships with independent clubs, teams and coaches is paramount to the success of our youth players. We believe we can provide every player with a suitable environment to succeed through collaborative alliances with local – and sometimes national - clubs.
We aspire to create a unique environment for those who seek to achieve success at the collegiate and professional levels of the game. We also provide the tools for young players to succeed in every aspect of their daily life.
Our players learn the meaning of commitment, to both self and team. They learn to enjoy the competition with teammates for a role within their teams. They battle and overcome adversity, both individually and collectively. Crucially, our players must manage their academics, their passion for the game and all other commitments. Texans SC players are encouraged to pursue total self-improvement, consistently raising standards and sharpening their talents and abilities in order to succeed in the next phase of their lives.
Our team is committed, driven and ambitious. Our coaching staff is made up of Texans SC alumni, former professionals, local players and veterans of the youth soccer system in the United States. Day in and day out, the focus is on giving players the opportunity to succeed at the next level.
In our proven player development model, culture is front and center. We believe in a competitive environment that fosters development and progress. Our coaches teach. Our players compete. Our teams succeed.
We give players the opportunity to thrive.
