Club Soccer Tryouts This Saturday

By: Mary Ann Cozza

Goal! Students interested in joining the UHD men’s and women’s club soccer teams should attend tryouts from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Aug. 27, at McReynolds Middle School, just five minutes from UHD.

To be eligible for the team, students must be enrolled at UHD for at least six credit hours and in good academic standing. Students must also register online (on the team websites above) before attending tryouts and should bring their Gatorcards, soccer shoes, shin guards and plenty of water.

The season begins Sept. 10 and practices will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4 to 6 p.m. and Saturday mornings and afternoons.

The UHD men’s team was the Houston Club Sports Conference (HCSC) champions for the past three years and earned a bid to the National Intramural-Recreational Sports Association (NIRSA) regional.  The UHD women’s team finished last season with its highest win total ever.  The UHD teams play in the HCSC which features the best collegiate club teams in the Houston area.
