Mission Statement

AHFSH Mission Statement

Alamo Heights Fort Sam Houston Fire Soccer Club is a non-profit and educational organization whose mission is to foster the physical, mental and emotional growth and development of our communities' youth through the sport of soccer at all age levels and competition in a healthy, fun and safe environment.

How do we achieve our mission

  • by conducting a training program that continuously and aggressively challenges the players technically, tactically, physically and mentally
  • by consistently hiring and continually educating the best youth soccer coaches possible
  • by providing a culture and atmosphere families and players want to be a part of. With focus on player development
  • by developing and providing education and training to all members – players, coaches, parents, volunteers and staff

The Alamo Heights Fort Sam Houston (AHFSH) soccer league was begun in the late 1970's with a goal of providing the opportunity to play soccer to children within the Alamo Heights community and Fort Sam Houston military dependents. In the mid 1980's private schools were invited to join the league, and the league began fielding teams comprised of children from throughout the San Antonio area. AHFSH has always welcomed teams who needed a viable, active league in order for their children to play.

The emphasis of the AHFSH is to focus on developing individual soccer skills, positive attitudes towards soccer and athletics in general, and good sportsmanship.  Our goal is to provide a league where children have fun.  Every decision that we make, whether for safety or competition or anything else, is done keeping fun for children as our number one priority.  We seek to develop and encourage boys and girls who have competitive talents without sacrificing our primary purpose of teaching a love for the game of soccer in a way that is fun for players.
