They played in the Continental Indoor Soccer League (CISL) from 1994 to 1997, and moved to the World Indoor Soccer League in 1999 after the CISL folded. The Hotshots folded in early 2001 after failing to attract new investors.
They were coached by Chico Borja (1994) and Trevor Dawkins (1995–97 and 1999–2000), and played at the Compaq Center and Reliant Arena. The Hotshots averaged attendance of 5,607 fans per game in six seasons of play.
