After an opening weekend of ties against the Houston Dynamo in US Development Academy action, the Texas Rush host their first home games of the season Sunday as they take on Texans SC.
Last season the U16 boys finished in 1st in the Texas Division with a conference record of 10-4-2. They will look to repeat as champions of the league again in 2011-2012 and make it back to the Academy Playoffs.
The U18 boys finished middle of the pack in a very strong Texas division last season with a record of 4-8-4 in conference.
The Development Academy is a partnership between U.S. Soccer and the top youth clubs around the country to provide the best youth players in the U.S. with an every day environment designed to produce the next generation of National Team players. The Academy’s programming philosophy of increased training, less total games and more competitive games is based on U.S. Soccer’s Best Practices utilized by the U-17 U.S. National Team Residency program.
