Frequently Asked Questions

1.  Do I have to play in the HCYSA Regular season, or can I just play Tejano Select Soccer?
We require all players to play in the Fall Season of HYCSA.  Main reason is that this will provide the player insurance and fulfill
         requirements for players to be part of a parent league.

We also believe that more touches on the ball assist players in getting better, with different coaches, different styles of play and this allows
        for that to take place.

2. How much does Tejano Select Soccer cost?
        So, for the HCYSA Regular Season fees per player are approximately $75.  In addition to that fee we require an additional $165 per player
        to participate in Select Soccer.  This includes:

                        - 2 Game Uniforms and 1 Practice Uniform
                        - 2-3 Tournaments in surrounding areas like Austin, Dallas, Houston, Kerrville, and San Antonio.
                        - Weekly practice sessions to improve the player and the person

        In Addition, your player will be invited to go to College Prep Camps to continue develop their skills and compete against players
        throughout Texas.

3. What does a tournament look like? How many games?

        Most Tournaments are weekend tournaments that will occur on Saturday and Sunday, and include 2-3 game a day, depending on how the          team does at the tournament.  They start at 7AM and usually end by 7PM on a Saturday and Sunday.

4. Who are the coaches of Tejano Select Soccer?
        Coach Robert Martinez, Coach Michael Leyva, Coach Nelson White and Coach Jon Fauner-Shantz

5. What age groups are the teams?
        14U - Usually has players from 12-14 on it but depends on the skills and makeup of the players.   10U has players from 8-10 years old,              and again depends on the skills and makeup of the players.  We offer Teams to both girls and boys in these age ranges.

6. What if I do not how good my son or daughter is?  Can we come practice with the team?
        Bring them out and let us meeting them!  We usually practice on Sundays at the Original Fields and the times vary based on the                          heat/weather.
