montgomery-lighting-2016

The club is very excited to announce that we have upgraded the lighting facilities at the Fellowship of Montgomery (Hwy. FM 149).  This will provide the opportunity to further expand the site for further soccer programming on a more permanent basis.  The club offers soccer opportunities for both boys & girls from 3-18 years of age in Montgomery.  This includes a new Youth Academy (Fall 2016) sponsored by The Nelson Company as well as running competitive and recreational areas.  The club currently has increased it’s membership base to 194 players registered in Montgomery in 2016 from 138 players in 2015.

For more information about the Texas Rush – Montgomery program, please contact Jason Budd, Director of Coaching – Montgomery at jbudd@texasrush.com or 281-298-2180.

“Upgrading our lighting was one of the goals of this year’s program.  This will drastically improve our daily soccer operations and it will allow more flexibility in the planning of our soccer programming.   We continually review all our current soccer facilities and make needed improvements where necessary which ultimately provides a better environment for our players to develop and to enjoy their experience “  Don Gemmell, Technical Director.

TOPS is always looking for volunteers to assist these players on the field:

We need ‘buddy’ volunteers who can help them learn to play soccer and help them have fun. NO special training is needed, just a desire to help. Many of the buddies over the past 3 years could only commit to a few Saturday morning games due to other commitments (soccer games, etc.) and this has worked well.  Any and all help is appreciated!
