Rise Soccer Club, which is the result of a January 2017 merger of the Houston Express Soccer Club and Eclipse Soccer Club, along with Pearland United Soccer Club are excited to announce that the future of the clubs will be as one! Effective June 1, 2017, Pearland United Soccer Club will be wholly absorbed into Rise Soccer Club, strengthening what was already becoming the premier destination for youth soccer in Houston. After close collaboration between the Academy teams of the three legacy clubs over recent seasons, the boards of both Pearland United and Rise Soccer Club concluded that the path to best serving the players of Pearland and the greater South Houston region would be most fully achieved through combining forces. The resulting club will provide a combination of player pool and geography advantages that will be unmatched in the Houston area for recreational and competitive players alike.
Relying on highly talented coaches from the US and abroad, a now even larger player pool and some of the finest soccer facilities in the country, Rise SC will develop the next generation of young stars and will aggressively pursue fulfilling opportunities for players from the recreational level through the highest divisions of elite national competition.
Although the merger of Rise Soccer Club and Pearland United takes effect on June 1, 2017, the two clubs will begin working together immediately to consolidate operations in preparation for the Fall soccer season as a single club, which includes coordinated competitive tryouts in May and team activities in the Summer timeframe.
We realize that the changes coming into effect with the formation of Rise Soccer Club, and now with the addition of Pearland United, will raise many questions among our families. The Rise Soccer Club Executive Director and Board have been hard at work finalizing the Fall season programming, and a great deal of information will soon be made available in that regard. You can be certain that the Rise Soccer Club leadership is planning a program that will be nothing short of first class for players of all ability levels. We appreciate the patience you have shown as the work of integrating these proud clubs continues in earnest. Keep an eye on the soon to be updated Rise Soccer Club website for programming details and registration information! If you have any questions about Rise Soccer Club, please click this link.
