About Us

PHILOSOPHY

The Albion Hurricanes FC's (AHFC) philosophy is to develop youth soccer players in all 4 aspects of the game: Technical, Tactical, Physical & Psychological . Our goal is to teach players to have the ability to adapt and play different positions as well as different systems of play on the field. Preparation for the next and highest level of play includes serious and committed players who are students of the game and passionate about our sport.  When we say next level, we're talking National Leagues, State team Olympic Development Program (''ODP''), id2 program, Regional team ODP, National team, College and Professionally. We desire our style of play to be visually different from most clubs, a style of play that stands out. Our vision is to make AHFC one of the best in the nation through mastering the fundamentals. By doing this we will prepare players for the next level and set the pace that transforms our club into National Champion status.

A full service club, AHFC offers all levels of play for Boys and Girls including National Leagues (United States Youth Soccer, US Club Soccer and Elite Clubs National League), Regional Leagues, Houston Division 1, Super 2, Division 2, Recreational and Developmental teams from 5 - 19 years of age. Consistent training methods are maintained at all levels of the club.  Any players who desires to move up to play at a higher level within the club will have the opportunity to advance. Our goal is for all of our players to have a passion and undeniable love for the game whether or not they aspire to play beyond high school.  We, as a staff, continually work to embrace this philosophy in order to make AHFC one of the best clubs in the nation.


ELITE PROGRAM MISSION STATEMENT
To produce hard working, skillful, technical players employing the following three phases: Foundation, Development and Advancement.

The purpose of the mission statement is to promote a culture of excellence which drives both our staffs’ and players’ thoughts and actions. The ideal environment is created to develop young players through experienced experts working together to produce an outstanding multidisciplinary support program where players can thrive.

As such, the elite environment is designed to service players with exceptional work ethic by encouraging creativity and individual excellence. An understanding of the player as a person beyond the capabilities demonstrated on the pitch is a driving factor.  This allows for individualization of support and creation of development plans providing the player with the optimal opportunity to achieve their potential.


COLLEGE PLACEMENT
AHFC has a network that reaches all levels of collegiate soccer. One of the strengths of our college placement program is the contact the club and staff have at topnotch colleges and universities all over the country.

Our players are performing at all levels of collegiate soccer from top twenty NCAA programs to programs at Division 1, 2, and 3, NAIA and Junior college levels.

AHFC continually seeks out the highest level of competition and exposure throughout the country. Our Boys and Girls teams perform at top tournaments and showcases across the nation. We personally invite coaches in town to watch our players perform. AHFC features a yearly college night to help educate our players in the recruiting process.  Our college bound player info can be found on College Fit Finder.

OUTREACH PHILOSOPHY
The ''Community Outreach Program'' is designed to introduce and facilitate the sport of soccer to children living in the city of Houston. The program targets children living in urban areas who need an activity outside of school, in their own environment. The Community Outreach philosophy allows for all children to benefit from an exposure to the sport, regardless of the level of parental involvement or ability to pay.
