The

Coach Houser's team have qualified for Jr National in 2006, 2009, 2012 and 2016!
Here are the 2006 Atlanta pics and here are the 2009 Miami pics,
and here are the pics from our weekend in Columbus OH in 2012!


Coach Houser's stepdaughter, Lauren Clary, qualified with her 17's team, and they played in Salt Lake City in 2005! Touch here to see those pictures.

For the most part, Junior Nationals is a tournament where only the best teams in the country participate. This is because teams must qualify for it. The location changes every year.

* The tournament is held in Orlando every year, so that's fun!
