The reach of RISE

RISE is able to provide players an unrivaled experience with minimal geographic challenges to a large majority of Houstonians, while still maintaining the community element. Due to our central location, platform, and infrastructure RISE currently draws players from over 150 zip codes in the Houston area. Our facilities, coaching staff, and administrative resources uniquely position RISE to provide opportunities for our players, 1.1 million people of which, live within 6 miles of our Central facilities. RISE offers soccer programming for boys and girls ages 4-19 of all levels of play in the heart of Houston.

Name a Field

$2,500 (Per Year)

Are you in the hospitality business? Do you want a lot of new customers? RISE teams compete in leagues that consist of teams from around the country. These leagues require teams to travel significantly because they play home and away games and frequently require overnight stays. For roughly 24 games a year we host teams who travel with groups of 100 persons. It is customary for host clubs to provide visiting clubs with a Gameday document that helps them become familiar with the area they will be visiting. This document would typically have a weather outlook, directions to our facility and points of interest around Houston. That’s where you come in. We will recommend your business to all of our out of town visitors who are natural consumers. They have to stay, eat and be entertained while they are in town. In addition to:

  • Partner logo on the RISE website which links to your business
  • Direct promotion on 2 club-wide communications per year
  • Partners will be able to set up a tent or exhibition in a prime location at 2 RISE events
  • Partner logo and/or name on the event marketing for all RISE events
  • Featured placement in our “Gameday” Document

Eligible Programs:

  • Girls Academy (subject to league rules)
  • MLS Elite Player Development Platform
  • Boys Elite Clubs National League Program (ECNL)

Pass It Forward

$300 - $1,000

For a lot of families playing at a top tier soccer club, with beautiful facilities, a positive environment and excellent coaches is a major sacrifice. With a minimum donation of $300, you can help a player with their uniform fees or player fees. Just think about the facilities your player is playing on today. People before us made sacrifices to make it better for our kids. Being part of RISE can make an important important impact on the life of a young athlete. Players learn discipline, structure, how to compete among many other things, but most importantly they make great friends in the Club. Please consider making a donation and help lower the economic barrier to play at RISE.
