College Commitments April 2020

Posted on April 02, 2020 BY Simon Boddison
Dynamo | Dash Youth is excited to congratulate Meghan Schwertner (Dash DPL '03) in her commitment to the University of North Texas, NCAA Div. I (Conference USA).  She will graduate in 2021.  
 
The College Center is brought to you by Northwest Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.

Meghan Schwertner 2021

"I have been a part of the Dynamo | Dash program for the past 3 years. My coaches David DeVerteuil, David Bolton, JD Devore, and Gene VanNess have put in countless hours in my development as a player and teammate. It has been so much fun playing all across the country with my DPL teammates. Playing D1 soccer was my goal and I could not have accomplished it without the Dynamo | Dash Club." Megan Schwertner, Dash DPL '03.

Unknown-4

"Megan began competitive soccer with me on one of our Dash South second teams and was playing up an age. Megan showed very good potential and was given opportunities to guest play within the club and eventually she worked really hard for a spot on our Dash DPL team. I wish Megan the very best in her collegiate career." Coach David DeVerteuil, Director of Coaching Girls (South). 

"I have been able to watch Meghan as she has grown into a strong athlete and an impactful soccer player. It's no surprise to me that Meghan is landing in such a great spot as she has had such a committed support team in Mum and Dad and an extremely competitive high school team. The last two years of her club soccer has seen her really develop in all areas of her game.  She’s taken advantage of our Dynamo | Dash Soccer Programs thus helping complete her journey and allowing the necessary exposure that a player needs to get recruited.  She certainly checks all the right boxes for the college coaches watching from the sideline. We wish her all the best and it’s now our job at Dash to continually support and improve her performance until she graduates prior to moving to the next level." Gene Van Ness, DPL Head Coach.

Club Update: COVID-19 (Spanish)

Posted on April 01, 2020 BY Simon Boddison

Para: Miembros de Houston Dynamo | Dash SC
De Parte: Don Gemmell, Director Técnico
Re: COVID_19  Actualizar - Suspensión de las actividades de fútbol desde ahora hasta el 4 de Mayo

31 de Marzo, 2020

Queridos miembros de Houston Dynamo | Dash SC,

En el club estamos comprometidos a apoyarlos a través de las condiciones sin precedentes que estamos viviendo juntos. Gracias a usted por tomar esta situation de COVID-19 en serio. Los sacrificios que está haciendo durante este tiempo (cancelar reuniones y distanciamiento social de familiares y amigos) no son en vano. Estos son increíblemente importantes, ya que estamos haciendo todo lo posible para frenar la propagación y aplanar la curva de esta pandemia.

Estamos trabajando en estrecha colaboración con las autoridades de salud pública, locales y estatales, ya que siguen protocolos para investigar y notificar a cualquier persona que pudo haber estado expuesta a alguien que da positivo.

Como saben, tomamos el paso inusual de suspender todas las actividades de fútbol ​​originalmente hasta el 13 de Abril. En consideración a la última orientación del gobierno federal, estamos extendiendo esa suspensión hasta el 4 de Mayo. Creemos que éste es un momento muy importante en nuestra batalla para contener la propagación del coronavirus y estamos convencidos de que un enfoque más riguroso ahora, hará una gran diferencia. Estamos trabajando en colaboración con las autoridades de salud pública locales y estatales mientras seguimos sus protocolos. Más adelante en Abril, el club proporcionará actualizaciones como las vayamos recibiendo. Por supuesto que todos esperamos volver a jugar lo antes posible, pero la salud y la seguridad de nuestros jugadores, padres, árbitros y personal del equipo son nuestra prioridad número uno.

En este momento, no hemos tomado decisiones definitivas sobre el regreso a nuestras diversas programaciones en las varias locaciones. Nos estamos comunicando semanalmente con nuestros funcionarios de la escuela y la liga, nos guiaremos en gran medida por lo que creen que tendrá más sentido dado a los muchos desafíos que existen para nuestras familias.

Prácticamente todos nuestros socios de la liga nos han dicho que tienen la intención de completar sus temporadas de primavera, aunque eso podría significar jugar juegos de la liga en Junio y Julio.

Sabemos que algunos padres preocupados están pidiendo reembolsos a algunos entrenadores. Creemos que hasta que se establezca una fecha de regreso al juego, y las ligas acuerden lo que sucederá con la temporada de primavera, la discusión sobre los reembolsos es prematura.

Nuestro increíble personal está trabajando para mantenerse involucrado con nuestros jugadores a través de nuestra Plataforma De Desarrollo De Jugadores en línea, College Fit Finder y videos / juegos interactivos. Nosotros, el personal de entrenadores y administrativo, estamos disponibles para su contacto en cualquier momento. ¡Estamos todos juntos en esto!

En nombre de la Junta Directiva y el personal de Dynamo | Dash Youth Soccer Club, les deseamos a todos buena salud y un rápido regreso a la normalidad.

 

Sinceramente,

Don Gemmell
Director Técnico
