What started out as a group of 8-year-old girls playing city league recreational soccer together
has now blossomed into a State Championship Club Team.

The Brazos Valley Blazers were just an idea several years ago that involved multiple area families who shared a common interest of having their young daughters experience a higher level of competition than recreational soccer could provide. So we created a team under the Brazos Valley Football Club, hired a coach and trainer and went to work.

It has been an incredible journey and an unending learning experience along the way. We have grown in size every year for the past four years and welcomed new girls to the Blazer family from all around the area as far reaching as Huntsville, TX. The journey has always been about way more than just soccer, and the girls are a testament to that.

This spring we travelled every weekend to the greater Houston area, to take part in the Dynamo/Dash soccer league, a highly competitive developmental league whose namesake is the Houston-based professional soccer organizations for both the MLS and the NWSL. These are large club organizations that pull from extensive populations of potential players to form their teams, so the competition level per division is as good as you can find throughout the state.

Our girls represented the Brazos Valley extremely well by winning the regular season, advancing to the district playoffs and going undefeated there, to claim a spot in the President's Cup State Championship in Round Rock, TX, May 14-16.

At that event, they also went undefeated amongst the other 3 state finalist teams amassing 8 goals while surrendering only 1 goal for the entire tournament. After earning State Champion honors for this league and division, they were invited to play at the regional tournament in Decatur, Alabama, June 9-13, as the sole representative from the Southern Division of the State of Texas.

This will be a completely unprecedented and exciting experience for these girls, some of whom have never even left their home state of Texas, and we are incredibly eager to take on the challenge and to continue to represent the Brazos Valley. A potential advancement from the regional level would mean an opportunity for the girls to compete for the National Championship later this summer. The entire experience to this point
has been an incredible blessing and wherever our journey ends, we know that the girls will have been gifted with so much more along the way than any Championship could equal.


TLDR version:
Dad wants to brag on his little girl and her soccer team
Brazos Valley has an extremely good club soccer team
The Blazers won the regular season title and the State Championship
Next tournament is in Alabama to represent South Texas for the Regional title
Possible National Championship run later this summer
