Gulf Coast has partnered with Coastal Premier Alliance to allow our premier players to combine with other players in the region to gain access to higher levels leagues.
Premier teams are coached and trained by our professional staff and are expected to train 10 months out of the year including offseason skills camps and pre-season team camps. They typically train (3) days per week, in addition to weekend games.
It is expected for Premier teams to play in the highest quality leagues available such as US Club USCTX League, DDL Division I-Qualifying (U11-U13), Division I (U14-U19), State Classic League (SCL) or equivalent leagues.
Premier teams will play in 2-4 tournaments and/or college showcases per year depending on the age-group. Occasional out-of-state travel may be expected for high school age groups during the season. As such, Premier level players must have a substantial commitment to soccer for training and games.
Other Competitive Levels We Offer

Select - is for intermediate-level competitive players. These teams play in local Division II leagues that serve as an entry point to competitive soccer and/or those that aspire to play multiple sports and can not meet the D1 time commitments.
