We as an organization are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation on a local, state, national, and global level, and doing everything we can to provide information and make decisions in the best interest of our membership and community.
Dozens of school districts in the Houston area as you know closed and local officials are encouraging the public to avoid large gatherings to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Due to the continued coronavirus (COVID-19) developments and advised CDC restrictions on gatherings of more than 10 people, USSSA has suspended all soccer related activities until further notice. For those of you who may not know, USSSA is the entity responsible for insurance coverage of our players; therefore, we cannot permit practice and league play during this suspension period.
Since many of our school districts are already closed through Friday, April 10th, Klein Soccer Club will be extending the postponement of our season through April 12th. Over the coming weeks, KSC will continue to evaluate the COVID-19 situation, remain engaged with USSSA, KSA, STYSA and USSOCCER representatives, and communicate with our membership any change to our league schedule and operational procedures. Klein Soccer Club asks that everyone continue to be socially responsible and do your part to help diminish the spread of the Coronavirus in the Houston area.
I’m sure many of you are probably frustrated with the stoppage of all soccer activities and this wonderful weather we’ve been having that we can’t even play in, but being socially responsible as individuals and as a club to combat further spreading of COVID-19 must take precedence over personal desires or opinions. The health and safety of all our coaches, parents, players and referees is our primary concern. Our staff and board of directors will continue to communicate information and updates through email, KSC social media pages and our website (www.kleinsoccerclubtexas.org).
Thank you - stay healthy, remain socially responsible and know that all of you are on the hearts and minds of the Klein Soccer Club Board and Staff.
Elizabeth Kaiser Meyer, the park’s namesake, was the granddaughter of Henrich Kaiser, an early settler of the Klein area in the 1800s. Elizabeth Kaiser Meyer Park was conceived by then County Judge Jon Lindsay to link parks together along Cypress Creek preserving green space for future generations. Land for the park was purchased from developer Vincent Kickerillo using Harris County land and conservation funds. KSC and Precinct 3 and later Precinct 4 built the improvements. Most of the park’s 172 acres are in the Cypress Creek flood plain.
KSC began in 1976 as a soccer program for children in northwest Harris County. There were 300 youth players, no central fields and no clubhouse. Up until 1980, KSC used various several fields for the program’s games and practices. Most of these fields were located behind area schools. In 1980, KSC signed a field use lease with Harris County Precinct 3, the local government agency in charge of Meyer Park at the time. Eventually, the lease allowed KSC to construct office space on the north side, from which the board of directors could manage the growing soccer program.
In 1986, KSC signed an addendum to its lease with Harris County Precinct 4, adding field space on the south side of Meyer Park.
Today, KSC operates a youth soccer program with approximately 4,000 children participating in all levels of play on twenty-eight soccer fields during the fall and spring of each year
Klein Soccer Club shall be responsible for the promotion of physical health, mental and emotional growth and to develop, govern and promote the game of soccer at all levels of age and competition.
Klein Soccer Club was organized more than 35 years ago with the mission of providing soccer for children of all levels of play, from recreational to elite. Having varying levels of play allows children to be matched on a team with others of the same skill level and have fun while learning the sport and playing with others.
Our recreational age groups are often split into “A” and “B” brackets, so that games are more evenly matched and competitive. In addition, we are focused on providing the best possible instruction on the game of soccer. Coaches are provided modules where they are taught how to run practices and games.
We provide an environment that promotes the enjoyment of soccer and youth sports, while developing motor skills and coordination.
The ability to effectively work with others is a life skill that will benefit children in all areas of life for years to come.
We believe that sportsmanship is a key value that needs to be taught to all youth.
We strive to instill the values of self-respect and respect for others to our players.
It is your frame of mind, the strength and hope you maintain when in a difficult situation and staying concentrated on believing that you will succeed.
We want all of our players to have goals and targets beyond their reach, so that they can strive harder than they will normally ever do.
