The ECNL-RL Texas conference will kickoff beginning in the 2021-22 season and will offer programming for boys ages U13-U19. “As clubs further develop their player pools, it has become increasingly clear that these organizations are looking for ways to deepen their relationship with the ECNL and to extend an ECNL experience to more players,” said ECNL Boys Commissioner Jason Kutney.

We couldn't be happier with this opportunity, as this announcement positions us to provide an exceptional development opportunity to more RISE players," said RISE ECNL Director Steven Grave.

RISE offers Funded U13 & U19 Age Groups

RISE offers Funded U13 & U19 Age Groups

RISE is thrilled to be the only youth club in the greater Houston area to offer a funded opportunity for Elite Program players who compete at the highest levels of play. RISE currently funds (U18/19) age group teams and we are excited to announce that we will begin funding the top (U13, birth year 2009) teams for the upcoming Fall 2021 season. This unprecedented opportunity essentially positions families to only have to pay for 4 years of club fees instead of 6 years from the U13 to U18/U19 age groups. We will actively look to add additional funded age groups in the future and further distinguish ourselves as the club that ties itself to the success of our players.
