Michaela Abam - Women's World Cup 2019

Posted on July 06, 2019 BY Simon Boddison
 
Houston, Texas (July 6, 2019) – The Houston Dynamo | Dash Youth Soccer Club (HDDY), a nationally recognized premier soccer club for boys / girls, recently had the pleasure of interviewing Michaela Abam, a former player of the club, West Virginia University and the Cameroon Women's National Team.
 
Screen Shot 2019-07-04 at 4.37.58 PM
 
Michaela had this to say on her experience of playing in the Women's World Cup 2019 in France:

"Playing in the FIFA Women’s World Cup; a dream of an experience I will never forget for the rest of my life. To be growing up playing within the US Youth National Teams and always having the expectation of growing within the system to one day end up playing with the red, white and blue; to now representing my country of origin in the highest stage of football possible was such a huge honor. There were the good moments in the matches, and for sure moments I watch my film on knowing, 'this needs to be a lot better'. That’s the beauty in the game, you can always continue to grow, you’re never 'too good' or 'too far up' not to!"


Screen Shot 2019-07-04 at 4.37.42 PM 

Five top take-a-ways:

The take-a-ways I took from this experience that definitely helped me grow during the tournament, as well as what will stick with me for the rest of my life, were based on:

  1. My mental space
  2. Psychological aspect
  3. Ambiance of the stage
  4. Overwhelming challenges that came on and off the field
  5. Remembering what keeps me going through it all—my family, background, struggles, fight and my perseverance

Screen Shot 2019-07-04 at 4.36.59 PM

"All these things combined really helped navigate me through the good and bad that went on during the tournament that helped me truly grow as a player, and more so as a person. It’s crazy to think, but all those days in club, the extra days that work had to be put in, all the fitness testing, the two a days that consisted of an equal ratio of sweat and tears, all the “sorry, I can’t. I have soccer,” messages that had to be sent when my football had to come first before anything else.  It was after remembering, feeling and going through all this, that I knew putting in all that time I would never get back into this passion of mine, was all worth it to bring me into this dream based reality of mine that will forever be priceless."


Screen Shot 2019-07-04 at 4.37.15 PM


"I’m so grateful and thankful for everyone who was involved in this experience and all my experiences along the way. My family, close friends, all the coaches throughout my whole life, the teammates I’ve been blessed to have along the way that have helped me work to be not only a better player, but a better Michaela. The best part about it all, is that it is just the beginning. I can’t wait to see what else is in store in what’s to come!"

Screen Shot 2019-07-04 at 4.36.48 PM


The club like to congratulate, recognize and thank Michaela for the time she took out of her busy schedule to provide her personal insight on playing in the World Cup 2019.  She continues to be a first class roll model who is extremely humble when speaking on her club, college and professional career.

Houston, Texas (June 23, 2019) – The Houston Dynamo | Dash Youth Soccer Club (HDDY), a nationally recognized premier soccer club for boys / girls, continues to expand its Disability Program.
 
Following a very successful inaugural season, CP Soccer Houston and Houston Dynamo | Dash Youth Soccer are adding a second training location in the Clear Lake area of Houston for the 2019/2020 season.

“We are very excited to add a second location. Houston is the 4th largest city in the US and very spread out city. Having a second location will allow us to better serve our families by spending less time in the car traveling to training sessions. This should be a great step to our goal of doubling our player participation in the 2019/2020 season. We would not be able to do this without the support of Dynamo | Dash Youth Soccer. The support they have given CP Soccer Houston has been tremendous and we look forward to developing the South program with the same success we have had with Coach Keith Johnson in The Woodlands.”  Deven Hull, Founder of CP Soccer Houston.

CP Soccer Houston South will be the 9th location for CP Soccer US. The teams are for kids 5-18 with ambulatory cerebral palsy, stroke or traumatic brain injury.  Started in 2018, the program’s goal is not only get and keep kids on the field, but to make new friends through a community of peers and to have fun.

Posted on June 20, 2019 BY Simon Boddison
Houston, Texas (June 15, 2019) – The Houston Dynamo | Dash Youth Soccer Club (HDDY), a nationally recognized premier soccer club for boys / girls, continues to sees huge beneficial results in partnering with the Dash (NWSL) professional organization.

On June 14, players from the Dash Youth Kingwood Program attended a Houston Dash training session to observe the players as they prepared to play against Orlando Pride. Coach James Clarkson stopped by shortly before practice to introduce himself to the girls and welcomed them to training. The girls took much away from the experience, with the highlights being, the intensity, attitude and quality of the play. After practice, several Dash players took the time to interact with the girls and thanked them for coming to watch them train.


Josh
 
"I would like to thank to the Dash Organization, especially Coach James Clarkson, all the Dash players, Jay Adelberg (Youth Sales Manager) and Stephen Goldsmith (Club Representative) for their hospitality."  Josh Smith, Director of Coaching - Kingwood Girls.

“What I took away from the DASH practice is how much fun they have during their warmup interacting with each other but when it is time for them to focus, they get serious immediately.  I appreciated their intensity and the work ethic was amazing.” Addison Gray, Dash Youth Kingwood 06.
