Coach Bryan Shipp:
Head Coach: Woodlands Dash 05 Black
Asst. Coach: Woodlands Dash 06 Orange Pool
"I'm proud to be associated with Dynamo Dash Youth, a Club that supports and values coaching development.  Many of our members might be surprised to learn that this course alone takes in excess of 150 hours of course work followed by an on-field evaluation to obtain certification.  As a coach and role model, it's important that I demonstrate to my players that, even for coaches, learning is continuous.  Successfully completing the "C" licence helps me be a better resource for the young ladies I coach."  Bryan Shipp.

The Dynamo 04 Development Academy recently returned from a tour in France which saw them compete in the TOURNOI SANS FRONTIERE (25th Edition). They were the first USA team to attend the prestigious event.

Coaching Staff: Dave Dengerink, Development Academy Director; Brian Cvilikas, Head Team Coach.

Team Players: Abel Piedra, Cesar Cordova, Jonah Clayton, Dean Wright, Joey Hlavac, Andrew Hollenbach, Finn Fenske, Joel Rodriguez, Ross Neves, Richard Monge, Cody Tice, Mikel Gonzalez, Felipe Alvarado, Antonio Rubio, Diego Diaz & Luis Lugo.

“This was an unbelievable opportunity for our players and staff to travel internationally and play in the Tournoi Sans Frontiere. It provided international competition against some of the top clubs in the world and at the highest levels in our age group. The football challenged and elevated our levels of play. The cultural experience this trip provided to our players was invaluable. It will open their perspective as they pursue and achieve different educational and professional goals. Also, the crepes were simply delicious!"  Brian Cvilikas, Head Coach.

 March 26 - Day 1

We landed at the airport at 8:15am in Paris, France. We first went to Champs Elysees Avenue including some shops like Adidas, PSG and Abercrombie. Then we went to see the Arc de Triomphe. When we got to the hotel we prepared for practice. We walked to the training fields that were on site. We trained on the same field as the Togo National team, they were also staying at our hotel. When we were finished we cleaned up and ate a delicious dinner in the hotel restaurant.
