CMS Soccer Players NEED YOUR HELP!!
We are so happy to have soccer at Creekwood Middle School. We need your help to get this amazing sport off to a good start. We need you financially and we need parent volunteers.
Financial Support Opportunities
CMS Club Soccer is not a part of HISD Athletics, thus HISD does not provide funds for uniforms, practice/game balls, corner flags, replacing old goal nets plagued with holes etc. In order to ensure the 7th/8th girls and boys CMS soccer players have uniforms and proper soccer equipment this year, we need all CMS soccer families to consider donating $30, $50, $100 or more. Please make checks out to 'CABC' (Creekwood Athletic Booster Club). Checks may be turned in during the meeting tonight or brought to the front office to be placed in the CABC box.
Please contact Lora Unwin, CABC President, at
or 713.398.0975 if you have any questions.

Boys: 7th/8th Mixed A Team

Girls tryouts will be held after Track & Field season ends (Wednesday, April 16th and Thursday the 17th). Players trying out need to be on the CMS soccer field ready to play by 7am each day with Tshirt, shorts, soccer cleats and shin guards. Players are allowed to use the CMS girls and boys locker rooms. Players’ backpacks etc. should be neatly placed on locker room benches. Valuables should be kept at home.

Decisions are based on performance and attitude during tryouts. At the end of the the last day of tryouts, students will pick-up a letter (to be read at home) from the coaches specifying if they made a team.
