Sports Quest provides training for competitive teams playing within Texas United F.C.(under 11 through under 19 years, boys and girls). The Sports Quest trained teams compete against other clubs within Houston Youth Soccer Association (HYSA) and Eastern District Division One Association (EDDOA).
Training sessions, try-outs and all home games take place at Bear Creek Park, Houston, TX (Hwy 6 and Clay Road).
The training service provided by Sports Quest has several key features:
- A carefully constructed and researched curriculum, catering not only to the technical and tactical needs of specific teams, but also to specific age groups
- A training environment that reproduces the demands and challenges experienced on game day
- Training sessions designed exclusively to prepare teams to implement the Sports Quest philosophy of play
- A Character Development component which addresses important leadership issues from a Christian perspective
Sports Quest's commitment to training excellence is matched only by its determination to develop positive working relationships with team coaches. The coach is critical to a team's success and development, and his / her position is greatly respected. Sports Quest recognizes that its primary function is to equip and prepare players during the weekly training sessions, and to provide advice and support on game days. It is understood however, that the final decision on team related issues always rests with the coach, and not the trainer. This arrangement and distinction allows both trainer and coach to contribute significantly to the progress of the team.
Trainers make a difference!
"From early in the game, it appeared that we were facing superior talent with lots of speed. Our team was not playing with heart, and appeared to be headed for a big loss. During the half-time talk from our trainer, he addressed the team's lack of heart in an extremely effective manner. At the beginning of the talk, some of the girls focused on his words. By the end of the talk, all were listening to every word. Those who weren't performing knew in their hearts they were letting the team down. In short, it was the best half-time talk I have ever heard. This resulted in a dramatic change in performance and focus. The opposing coach said, "That was a different team in the second half". We won the second half; unfortunately both halves count. Our trainer was extremely effective as a trainer and a leader. Thank you".
