NEW FOR THE 2014/2015 SEASON
BLACKHAWK DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM (U9/U10)

 
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 2014/2015 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.  Click Here to register for Fall Recreational Soccer

BDP Schedule: A tentative schedule has been developed to give parents an idea about the commitment.  There will be two weeks of concentrated training before the rec season in fall and spring.  During the rec season there will be Friday night training and on every other Sunday there will be scrimmages or friendlies.  The BDP teams will play in one tournament in the fall and one in the spring.  For a tentative schedule, click prior Link.

The BDP will be a program that develops coaches and managers for the competitive program.  For 2014/2015 season there will be one head coach assigned to the boys and one head coach assigned to the girls.  Depending on numbers, additional coaches will be added to the program.
 
Cost:  $100 per season ($100 for the Fall & $100 for the Spring)

To register reply to htsasoccer@gmail.com with the name of the player and birthdate.  Fees will be collected by your BDP coach.
 
I am looking for at least one manager on the boy's side and girl's side of the program. Please do not hesitate to call or email me with questions. I am looking forward to seeing everyone on the pitch.

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!

"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."
