In 1987, Bruce and Debbie Heller enrolled their eldest son in a local soccer league, and further offered to serve as team coaches. Little did they know that this generous, yet simple, philanthropic effort would spark an interest and ignite a passion that would forever shape the trajectory of their son’s path in life. Involvement in the sport of soccer builds both athletic prowess and personal development skills in the form of teamwork, commitment, socialization, fair-play, and coping among others.
Recognizing a need for high quality, invested, pre-school and youth academy team lessons/coaching in the north Texas community, Steve Heller founded Heller Sports LLC DBA Hawks Soccer Club in August of 2022. This organization provides on-site soccer training for multiple early education institutions around the north DFW area (Lil’ Hawks), academy team coaching (Hawks FC), and private and group lessons upon request.
Hawks Soccer Club endeavors to educate its young clients in such a way that prioritizes personal development over athletic achievement. As such, all participants, in both early education and academy team involvement, are afforded equal attention and opportunity for play regardless of skill level. At its heart, Hawks Soccer Club is committed to its motto that EVERY CHILD MATTERS!
