THE STING SOCCER ORGANIZATION IS COMMITTED TO PROVIDING EXCELLENCE IN ALL AREAS OF DEVELOPMENT FOR GIRLS AND BOYS
THE STING SOCCER CLUB BEGAN ITS MISSION IN 1973.
We only focused on women’s soccer in our beginning because at that time, we lived in an environment where women’s sports were uncommon, modified, and in the early stages of its existence. It was a common belief that strenuous exercise was unhealthy for females back then, so sports were modified to limit the activity to a minimal level.
Lamar Hunt, and a few key pioneers of women’s soccer, including Sting Soccer’s Bill Kinder, created leagues and put together teams with female athletes of high school age. They played in a league in Dallas called the High School Girls Soccer League (which has grown into the now prestigious and nationally recognized Lake Highlands Girls Classic League). With that, the game of soccer for women in Dallas was born.
It spread like wildfire with young women throughout the area, so excited to finally be able to participate in sports in a way that allowed them to truly be active and express themselves as athletes on the field.
UNITED AS ONE
GIRLS AND BOYS, UNITED AS ONE
IN A TWIST THAT IS CHARACTERISTIC OF THE STING NAME, TITANS FUTBOL CLUB, THE FORMER BROTHER CLUB TO THE STING SOCCER CLUB WILL NOW SHARE THE STING NAME.
We proudly move forward as one organization for both girls and boys, ladies and gentlemen. Titans Futbol Club was established in 2007, and in recent years has exploded onto the youth soccer map, reflecting its exponential growth. The Titans flourished due to their focus on quality coaching and player development, which aligned closely with Sting.
The Titans and Sting have always shared the same operations and administration team, and coaches have often led teams in both Clubs. Integrating our leadership staff was the natural step in becoming one Club. The move truly underscores the collaborative atmosphere that has been characteristic of Sting and Titans independently. We shared the same goals; we shared the same vision; and now we are one and share the same name as Sting.
Sting Soccer Club Boys has been incredibly progressive in our growth and mindset towards player development. Without a doubt, we are a player-centered program that provides the very best learning environment for all its players, and an experience that will maximize development and opportunities for each and every player regardless of their level.
