NTX teams in Houston

Post by SD69 on 25/04/15, 09:51 pm

Team was looking to go down to the Houston Shootout over Memorial Day to play different teams than they normally play. Ends up that 14 of the 23 teams are from NTX with 5 of 7 of them from the 04 age group. Wonder how they will split these up? Guess we could've saved some gas and hotel money and stayed home!

Had a similar experience in Oklahoma earlier this month. 4 out of 5 teams in our bracket were from NTX.

Not sure if it matters but all games are played in a friendly format with no advancement. I'm not sure if I'd wanna drive 4 hours, pay for hotel, food, and gas to play 2 or 3 games against teams we already play here in NTX. Being from Houston and with me and the wife's folks still living there, it's only costing me gas and it's giving the Grands a chance to see DD play but I can see how others would have a problem with it. Might as well just enter a tourney here around that time.

Yes, traveling just to play NTX teams can be frustrating.  But, in the long run, this soccer journey is about a lot more than just soccer.  My '03 daughter has traveled twice for tournaments and has loved the experience because of the bonding she has done with her teammates.  That makes it worth the time, energy and money.

And a side note - my '74 wife played for Texas Spirit and still says that traveling with her team was one of the highlights of her youth.

And a side note to my side note - my wife just told me traveling out of town to play NTX teams sucks.

It appears your wish to save gas and hotel monies will come true. the forecast doesn't look good.

It is not about you.

If your DD is on the right team for her, these trips will be one of the things she remembers long after the wins and losses fade from memory.

Some of you people have too much discretionary income. As parents, we are not obligated to show our DDs a good time. What about teaching them the value of a dollar? This tourney sounds like a big waste of time and money. I'd rather take my wife on a date, Lord knows we all need to do more of that.

Since a lot of these clubs use these big tournaments to generate income, can we expect larger fees next season due to all of the cancellations lately?

Weren't any of your teams scheduled to travel to spring, tx this weekend? Aren't you guys traveling to play the surf cup? You should look yourself in the mirror before making feckless comments.

My DD was actually looking forward to playing some different teams and seeing some different styles along with playing in front of her Grands. The opportunity to test yourselves against different teams is what these out of town and out of state trips should be about along with some fun for the DD's. The only issue I had was possibly playing 2-3 games against teams we see here every other month but this tourney did an excellent job of scheduling. Although 17 of the 40 teams in the U12 bracket were from NTX, I don't think any teams from NTX were scheduled to play each other. I guess it's a moot point now. On a side note...we traveled to Tennessee for a tournament in the fall. All the girls had a blast but I thought it was funny that we played a NTX team in the semis.  Very Happy

Refunds for cancellation?

"Teams will receive as close to a full refund as possible."

I wonder if it will be more than 75% (unless you decide apply your fees to the new 5v5 tournament taking its place) Shocked
