Best Hope for World Cup 2014

Austin Soccer Programs

Depending on a number of factors -- your kid's interest and skill level, your financial situation, and your willingness to go to countless practices (or not) -- Austin is a fine town to initiate the young'uns to this favorite international pastime. There's Hancock Recreation (your equal opportunity league), West Austin Youth Association (not cheap, but they do have scholarships), and University Hill's Optimist Club teams. Each has its own fine merits. All build great individual self-respect and excellent team skills.
