STING AUSTIN OFFERS RECREATIONAL SOCCER FOR ALL PLAYERS U5-U17
Having fun, learning by playing and building character through soccer are what you can expect when you sign up your player for the Sting Austin Recreational Program.
Our coaches create safe, challenging, inclusive soccer environments where players can experience the game, grow as individual players, learn sportsmanship and respect, and become a good teammate. Through their recreational soccer experience, many players build the foundational skills and confidence to help them transition to more competitive Academy and Select soccer programs.
Critical to player success in our Recreational program is the support of the parent and volunteer coaching community. Our Volunteer coaches are respected and community-focused in their contribution; and have great impact on the lives of the athletes within our program. They are provided curriculum guidance, coaching resources and access to coaching clinics by the Sting Austin Youth Director.
Sting Austin strives to create a growing love for the game while providing a philosophy that supports the advancement of all levels and every player within the Recreational program. Below are recreational program rates:
This is soccer for players of varying experience levels who want to have fun, learn and also compete. There is no try-out needed and anyone can sign up and play.
All our recreational teams practice at 1 Riverwalk Dr., Hutto, Tx. 78634
The youngest groups play their games against other Sting Austin recreational teams at the Riverwalk fields. Teams of 8 and 9 year olds play in an inter-club league with other clubs in Georgetown, Pflugerville and Wells Branch. Teams for 10-year-olds and older play in a Capitol Area league against other teams in the Austin area. Most games are played on Saturdays, with the possibility of some on Sundays.
There are two separate seasons, fall and spring. The fall season runs from September to November and the spring season runs from February to April, generally. The exact dates may vary from year to year.
Registration for fall will open May 1 and close on August 15. Please reach out to Colin Nannery at firstname.lastname@example.org after August 15 as there may be spots available on teams in specific age groups.

The uniforms are available through Royal Nation at https://stingsoccerstore.com/. Once you are placed on a team, you will receive a 4-digit Team ID number that you can use for ordering. Uniforms kits are $50 and include two jerseys, one pairs of shorts and one pair of socks. They may be used for multiple seasons. The design changes every two years.
