Serving the Houston Soccer Community

The Houston Southwest Soccer Association (HSSOA) serves the high school soccer officials, school administrators, players, coaches and fans in the greater Houston metropolitan areas. We are the Houston Chapter of TASO Soccer Official. Our chapter, together with the Texas Association of Sports Officials (TASO) and the University Interscholastic League (UIL) works to provide high school soccer with some of the best referees in the country. Our chapter has over 300 members that work together as a team to officiate 4A-5A high schools in Houston.

The Houston chapter of high school soccer referees is one of the largest in the state. High school soccer in Houston offers referees the chance to work with some of the most talented teams, coaches and officials in the country. With our season in the winter months, it gives referees the chance to continue to referee at the highest level all year.
