The club held their annual College ID event at Bear Branch Soccer Complex in conjunction with the Houston Dash Premier Cup 2018. The event was designed to showcase college bound Dash soccer players that are undecided in their collegiate search. Games were played at the following time slots with a variety of colleges represented:
11:30am: 2021 Graduates vs. 2020 Graduates
1:00pm: 2018 Graduates vs. 2019 Graduates
Sixty one (61) players attended from our Develpment Academy and Dash City programs who are 'uncommitted' and 14 NCAA / NAIA schools attended - LeTourneau University, St. Edward's University, University of Incarnate Word, St Thomas University, Sam Houston State University, Lamar University, University of Houston, Nichols State University, Houston Baptist University and McNeese State University.
"The 2018 college ID event was a tremendous success. There are few events where college coaches can go and see 60 uncommitted players all on the same field in such a short space of time. Fourteen (14) different schools chose to brave the elements and attend our event when every other game in the city had been cancelled. We have received some great feedback from the coaches that attended the games and we will continue to work with each player to help them in the recruitment process." Darron Rush, Director of Coaching Pre-Academy (U13 - U19).
