The Youth Academy program offers advanced recreational and aspiring elite players the opportunity to discover a deeper passion to play and learn the game. All training and games are conducted by a licensed HTX Soccer coach following our proven player development curriculum.

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 opportunities for success and confidence building.

Who Can Play? Any Boy or Girl born 2016 – 2014 is welcome to be evaluated.

YOUTH ACADEMY EVALUATIONS: The Humble Youth Academy Program is holding evaluations. Use the contact buttons below to arrange an evaluation!

The cost of uniforms is separate from your player’s registration fees. The Youth Academy uniform kit is provided through Soccer.com and is approx. $100 + taxes & shipping. Uniforms are valid from Fall 2023-Spring 2025.

Your player’s uniforms are customized which means it may take several weeks to ship. Please keep this in mind when ordering. If your uniform doesn’t arrive before the first game, improvise by using a t-shirt, which your child is welcome to decorate & customize.

Players train twice per week with our professionally licensed coaches.
