HOUSTON DYNAMO, HOUSTON DASH, TEXAS RUSH SOCCER CLUB & SPACE CITY FC JOIN FORCES TO FORM NEW YOUTH CLUB

HOUSTON – (Wednesday, Feb. 8, 2017) – The Houston Dynamo, Houston Dash, Texas Rush Soccer Club and Space City Football Club have partnered to create a new organization poised to transform the landscape of youth soccer in Houston.

The new partnership is designed to build a unique youth soccer organization that will enhance the experience for players of all skill levels. By combining resources, the organization will be able to provide a full range of programming and a complete pathway for the beginner through to the collegiate and professional levels.

“We are delighted to partner with a successful professional organization like the Houston Dynamo and Houston Dash,” said Don Gemmell, Technical Director for Texas Rush Soccer Club. “I believe we have a unique opportunity to build a youth soccer club that does not exist in the Houston market.  It’s a club that will improve player development opportunities for boys and girls at every level and built to compete nationally.”

The newly formed club has more than 5,500 youth soccer players and makes up one of the largest youth soccer clubs in Texas. The club has 3,300 recreational players and 2,200 competitive players competing in 15 Houston-area facilities.

“This is an exciting opportunity to make a positive impact on thousands of young boys and girls,” said Randy Evans, Executive Director of Space City FC. “There is a true sense of commitment from the professional and youth sides to work together to best serve the greater Houston soccer community. We are thrilled to be part of this new path.”

The boys’ division will compete as the Houston Dynamo Youth Soccer Club, and the girls’ division will compete as the Houston Dash Youth Soccer Club. With the merger, the club will be managed by the same leadership groups of the previous clubs.

“We are very excited about this partnership and the many opportunities it creates for the future,” said Dynamo and Dash President Chris Canetti.  “As a professional club, we hope we can have a greater impact on growing the game and on individual player development here in Houston. At the same time, we are creating a direct path to the pros for both boys and girls.”

The Dynamo and Dash will provide resources to enhance the experience of the members through an all-encompassing and inclusive programming beginning at the age of 3. The partnership will offer a unified training philosophy, enhanced coaching pool and enhanced standards as set by U.S. Soccer. Additionally, the partnership will facilitate the creation of the Dash Development Academy which was announced last August.

The Dash and Dynamo organization are one of only three in the United States to operate an MLS club, an NWSL club, a boys’ Developmental Academy and a girls’ Developmental Academy. The other two such organizations are the Portland Timbers and Thorns and Orlando City FC and the Orlando Pride.

South Texas Olympic Development Program

South Texas Olympic Development Program – Developing High Caliber Players

fed-odp-logo-259x300

The US Youth ODP Soccer Philosophy

To identify players of the highest caliber on a continuing and consistent basis, which will lead to increased success for the U.S. National Teams in the international arena.

Purpose

The US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program was formed in 1977 to identify a pool of players in each age group from which a National Team will be selected for international competition; to provide high-level training to benefit and enhance the development of players at all levels; and, through the use of carefully selected and licensed coaches, develop a mechanism for the exchange of ideas and curriculum to improve all levels of coaching.

How Do I Participate?

(South Texas players can CLICK HERE for local ODP information)

Contact your local US Youth Soccer State Association office to find out more about getting involved with US Youth Soccer ODP. You can find State Association by clicking here. Or, simply contact the US Youth Soccer National Office at nationaloffice@usyouthsoccer.org

Program Description History

In 1979 the program expanded, the organization became more efficient and multi-year plans were developed. State Associations were encouraged to develop programs which supported and worked in tandem with National and Regional programs. At the beginning of 1982 a formalized program for girls was created, with the addition of a full committee (one member from each Region).

Current Organization

From 1982 until the present, international events for youth national teams have increased substantially and the US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program has kept pace by instituting trials and player pools for five age groups in the boys’ program, and five age groups in the girls’ program.

The US Youth Soccer ODP Selection Process

Each State Association holds ODP try-outs on an annual basis. Age Groups and try-out dates may be different from state to state, based on seasonal and state considerations. Your first contact should be to your State Association for try-out information.

How are Players Selected?

Players are selected, in most states, on the basis of open tryouts. These tryouts are conducted by state association coaches who are recognized for their ability to identify and train players with superior skills. Some state associations combine scouting techniques and invitations to certain players with the open tryouts. Selection of these players is not an easy task. The state association head coach or State Coach will, in most cases, be assisted in the selection process by several other qualified coaches from the club or league level. Players are evaluated on the four components that make up a soccer player:

  1. Technique
  2. Tactics
  3. Fitness and Athletic Ability
  4. Psychological Component (attitude)

What are Regional Camps?

US Youth Soccer is divided into four regions, each which offers a regional camp for state association ODP teams in each eligible age group. The camps are designed to provide high level competition and training for participating players. During this training and competition, players who are capable of performing at a higher level of play are identified for possible national team camp, pool, or team participation. Each region varies somewhat as to the specifics and the cost of their camps. Your state association or regional administrator should be contacted for more information.

What is a National Camp?

National Camps and Interregional events are held throughout the year at various locations in the United States. The National Team Coach or a National Staff Coach is present at these events to observe, train, and indentify players for placement in the national pool or on a national team.

What are the Benefits of Practicing in US Youth Soccer ODP?

Development as a player. The opportunity to train and play with the best player’s in one’s age group.
Quality instruction from nationally licensed coaches.
Quality competition. Games against other state association ODP teams.
Exposure to regional and national team coaches.
The opportunity to represent one’s state, region, or country in competition.
Exposure to college coaches.

Volunteers

Dynamo | Dash Youth Volunteer Opportunities

Dynamo Dash Youth is one of the largest and growing, volunteer based sports clubs in Houston. Your volunteer efforts are appreciated and much needed to make our club the terrific success it is. Throughout each season, we need volunteers to fill many different roles for a minimum of two hours. With over 6,500 players, parental support is of the utmost importance.

Below are the various volunteer opportunities available. Participation in any of the opportunities below will qualify you for a refund of your $25 fee.

Field Patrols are a vital role for Dynamo Dash Youth and league requirement to ensure its Saturday games are a positive experience for players, families, and guests. For a two hour time period, you are asked to monitor positive and/or negative behavior on the fields. Throughout the season we need 100 field patrols; ten per game day.

  • 8:00AM to 10:00AM shift
  • 10:00AM to 12:00PM shift
  • 12:00PM to 2:00PM shift

For the following important volunteer positions, please email Yeiny Perla at yperla@dynamodashyouth.com.

Under the direction of Dynamo Dash Youth Technical Director, Don Gemmell, Directors of Recreational Coaches, and Director of Coaches, you will be educating your team the basics of soccer skills, sportsmanship, and fun. Depending on the age division, you will be responsible for one or two (two for the older age groups) practices per week and games primarily on Saturday and occasionally on Sunday. You will be required to attend 1-2 coaches meetings and it is recommended to attend the coaches licensing clinics offered throughout the year.

You are the communication liaison between the coaches and the players and parents. Depending on each individual coach, you may be asked to call or email the team in regard to cancellation of practices and games due to inclement weather or scheduling conflicts of the coaches. Some coaches prefer to attend to these matters themselves, therefore, please ask your coach what he or she prefers. Additionally, you need to arrange the pick up of medals and team pictures for distribution to your team, organize the end of season team party and collect money for coaches’ presents. You may be asked to make a team roster, snack schedule for weekly games, and pass out any pertinent information Dynamo Dash Youth has provided you for distribution to your team. Again, ask your coach how he or she wants to handle the above mentioned items, as some coaches tend to these matters themselves.

Are you interested in opening your heart and home to one of our talented international professional coaches?

Dynamo Dash Youth contracts a professional coaches through Youth Elite Soccer for professional team training once per week beginning with the U7 age groups and older. If you are interested in opening your home and family to a coach for one to two weeks, it will be a memorable experience for your family.

Please inquire about this activity as many families love to host and the weekly spots fill quickly.

Data entry at the soccer office for any two hours Monday through Thursday from 10:00AM to 2:00PM (specific dates/times will be announced)

Many different events and activities such as Winter Blast, Turf Cup, Memorial Day Tournament, Dynamo Dash Youth’s Annual Golf Tournament and Houston Youth Cup take place each year and require hundreds of volunteers. Some of special projects are as simple as making phone calls, helping with passing out trophies, or clerical help in the office.

Dynamo Dash Youth Soccer Club is governed by volunteers responsible for fulfilling the mission of the Club. Numerous Board positions will become available each season. Please inquire if you are interested.
