Overview: The Blackhawk Development Program (BDP) is an Academy program for U9 and U10 players.  The BDP is designed to act as a bridge between our recreational and competitive programs by offering additional training to build skills and further technical development.
What is an Academy Program?  An Academy Program is designed to offer a higher level of training by trained coaches at younger ages.  It also offers maximum flexibility of rosters. Therefore, players in the BDP will not necessarily be assigned to a team and depending on the numbers could be playing on a different team from week to week.  The BDP is not an "All-star" team.  The BDP will play 8v8 on a larger field than rec and play longer games.  Coaches will be encouraged to follow the 50% play rule.
The BDP for the 2015/2016 season will be an optional addition to the rec program.  Therefore, all players must register as normal for recreational soccer.  Recreational teams and schedules will not be affected and players cannot play in the BDP only.

BDP Schedule: A tentative schedule has been developed to give parents an idea about the commitment.  Practice will be Mondays and Wednesdays at Bayou Black beginning Wednesday September 9th.  Mondays 6:30pm to 8pm.  Wednesdays 5pm to 6:30pm.  Scrimages will be scheduled during the season 
Cost:  $100 per season ($100 for the Fall & $100 for the Spring)

Partner up with HTSA For the 2015 Gobbler Cup XXV!

Dear HTSA Members and Benefactors


HTSA is hosting the Twenty-Fourth Annual Gobbler Cup Soccer Tournament on Nov 7th & 8th, 2015.  The tournament will attract teams from the Louisiana Competitive League and Recreational Soccer for ages U10 through U14 Boys and Girls.  The expected number of teams is between 100-115.


Tournaments are HTSA’s major fundraisers.  The money that is generated from soccer tournaments keeps fees as low as possible for all players and will allow us to stay competitive with other soccer organizations.  Tournaments also benefit the community by bringing in much needed tax dollars and revenue for local businesses with overnight stays at local hotels and purchases at local businesses. 


We are seeking sponsors to make this event successful and fun for all participants. If you are looking for some exposure for your business or just love soccer and want to see HTSA be successful, please think about being a sponsor of youth athletics.   The following page explains the sponsorship levels we are offering for the tournament.  If you would like to make a donation or become a sponsor please call Bobby Leaber at 985-637-2237 or email me at bleaber@comcast.net.


Thanks for your Support !!!

Bobby Leaber

PROTECT THE NET - Winter Goalkeeping Academy in Houma, Louisiana
With former pro & current NSU GK Coach Danny Free

PTN Director Danny Free. “For GK's to continue improving as individuals, we must stay sharp and in shape, and this particular program makes sure our goalkeepers will be ready during their winter season and when spring rolls around.”

Coach Danny Free Bio

PTN is a 8-week GK specific training academy for goalkeepers of all levels to stay sharp and improve during the winter months. We offer two winter programs - so you are able to choose what fits best around your schedule and budget.
We will work on GK topics such as, shot stopping, footwork, angles and distribution. Just like outfield players, it is important that goalkeepers continue to practice in their position if they want to continue improving, these 8/16 winter sessions will allow GK’s to stay in shape and form in the off season.

Practices will be led by Nicholls State University GK Coach and ex-pro Danny Free and will be split into age groups so goalkeepers will be getting training that is appropriate for their age and skill level.  The "8 is great" program offers 1 practice session each week while the "Solid 16" program offers 2 per week (16 total). Click on the link below or attached in the email email to register - sign up early to get this great deal as numbers will be capped!

Concussion Education

Louisiana has passed legislation that now requires youth sports organizations to notify its participants (players/parents/coaches) of the symptoms of concussions and the risks with continuing to participate with a possible concussion. LSA has prepared documents to help us meet the requirements of Louisiana Act 314.  Every parent and player must complete the LSA Informed Consent about Concussions prior to the start of the season.  Managers and coaches are to keep a copy of the LSA concussion Notification Form in their binder to be used at tournaments/practices/games when a possible concussion is suspected.

The appropriate forms can be found listed on LSA's website HERE.

 *Scroll down LSAs news page to Concussion Education.

Sportsmanship comes first!

From time-to-time, we'll get positive feed back from another team or club about the way Houma Soccer, HTSA or Blackhawk Futbol Club, carries itself at the soccer field.  Many times negative actions of a coach or parent will over shadow the truely positive intent and makeup of youth athletics and our club, so we greatly appreciate when another takes the time to acknowledge the goodness or kind act of a fellow member

HTSA would like to recognize and give props to Coach Ricky Alston and the U13 Black Ladyhawk team for displaying the kind of character and attitude that we strive to carry forth as an association!


Post by laffysoccermom @ www.laprepsoccer.net

"In light of the negative posts about field conditions, player sportsmanship, punches being thrown or not, etc, I wanted to pass along some comments by my young daughter.

She said her favorite team to play is Houma because of their sportsmanship. She said they are nice to us no matter who wins. They play hard but never dirty.

She said the coach looks you I the eyes when we were shaking hands. She also said that when he and the team said good game,they meant it.

She said the parents were never rude and seemed concerned even when one of our players was hurt.

I concur with all her observations. I know this year when we played there, the coach greeted us and told him to let him know if we needed anything. He seemed like a genuine guy.

I just wanted to pass this along on hoping someone affiliated with the club would see this and pass it on. This is not to knock any of our other opponents but Houma has just stood out."
