Two major Houston youth clubs -- the Dallas Texans-Houston Division and Texas Soccer Club -- are joining forces to field USSF Academy teams.
The alliance will begin for the 2009-10 season. But tryouts for this year will remain separate for all ages except the U16 and U18 boys academy teams.
The TSC Texans have won three national titles. The Texans-Houston Division were the 2009 US Youth Soccer National League National League under-17 boys runners-up.
