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.
