Super Summer League 2017 a great success!
The Super Summer League started back in May for the second edition in the summer of 2017. We welcomed 30 teams, competing in six different age groups (U10, U12, U14, U16, U18 & U23).
Compared to the 2016 edition, the Super Summer League increased with 10 teams, the SSL also welcomed a U23 bracket and saw two U10 brackets (9 teams).
The first games started in the last weekend of May, and ended in the second week of July. With a small 4th of July break we had back to back games every weekend.
The Houston Dutch Lions FC Soccer Facility is a great environment to host more than 20 games every weekend. The games were scheduled in the early morning or in the evening to avoid the Texas heat as much as possible. A lot of players from various clubs enjoyed playing games during the summer, in order to prepare for the Fall season.
The Houston Dutch Lions FC played with seven teams in the Super Summer League. The teams were coached by soccer players who played for the Dutch Lions FC NPSL team.
These coaches play at colleges around the nation (mostly NCAA D1/D2 & NAIA schools) and have a lot of experience playing the game on a high level. For the Coaches it was a great challenge to develop players according to the Dutch philosophy of Soccer, and to bring over their experience to the players. All teams had three 90-minute practices each week, and played their games in the weekend.
The organization of the Super Summer League is pleased with the second edition. More teams joined, scheduling all games went better and the quality of the referees improved as well. As we are trying to further improve the Super Summer League for 2018, we would like to hear from you in our brief survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2QM9ZKH
