2018 Houston Shootout Series

WHAT: Prior to the 2014 season the tournament directors of AVA, Houston Juniors, Texas Tornados and Willowbrook got together and worked out a plan for all of their facilities to work together and commit all of their teams to a series of events so that teams would no longer have to guess where the competition would be on a given weekend. The vision is for all the clubs in the city of Houston to meet three or four weekends a year at the same tournaments to insure good competition for everyone while limiting the travel and keeping the costs low. The 2010-2017 Series have gone very well and we are excited about the 2018 Series.
WHEN:

  • HSO #1 - January 20, 2018

  • 17s/18s always play PM wave 4pm-10pm

  • LOCATION: Matches will be played at Texas Tornados Training Facility, AVA, and Willowbrook Sports Complex. Teams will know their schedules far enough in advance to plan for the site at which they will be playing.
    REGISTRATION: To register your team, use the WSC Club Directors' Online Registration System. Or you can print out an entry form and return with a check to:

    Willowbrook Sports Complex
    12539 Perry Rd
    Houston, TX 77070


    IMPORTANT: You may register for all stops individually. Also, unlike in previous years the 17s and 18s are registered separately, each in their own division, but they will still play together.

    Make checks payable to: Houston Shootout
    In the memo line of your check please include team names and stop numbers.
    FORMAT: Seeding will be done by the region. Suggestions will be made for the seeding of the next round. But the final decision will be done by the region.

    Brackets of 8 will be played out each weekend (3 matches guaranteed) and the top 3 will move up and the bottom 3 will move down from each bracket to form the next stop’s brackets. There are 2 divisions - 16s and a combined 17s/18s division to increase the competition for the older group. Teams that do not play in a stop can be seeded higher than teams that played in the previous stop.
    ENTRY FEE: $525 for all 3 stops ($175 per stop) -- note price increase
    R1 (Up) officials will be provided at all Stops.
    Teams may play in any or all 3 stops.
    SCHEDULES: For information on team entries, schedules and results, go to WSC's Tournament Information website.
