We proudly have just completed another year of our extensive summer camp program, offering soccer opportunities for players through the months of June – August. We believe that year-round soccer is crucial for the development of our players.  The summer camp program is the entry level of the club's developmental pathway. This season, our program was made possible by the sponsorship and support of Raising Cane's.

During the summer of 2022, we offered fifty five (55) camps for 2,000 players, aged 3-18, at nine (9) different locations. We had the following personalized programs - Mini-Kickers, World Cup, Summer Skills, Strikers vs. Keepers, Goalkeeper and Adaptive / Special Needs. The registration for our Fall 2022-Spring 2023 Thanksgiving, Winter and Spring Break camps will open on September 1.  

This year’s summer camp program was our biggest in DDY history. "I would like to thank all the players, parents, coaches, volunteers and the administrative team who helped make this year of summer camps the most successful yet with record-breaking numbers in attendance," said Stuart Taylor, Summer Camps Director. "It was great to see so many returning players, as well as, players trying soccer for the very first time. We can’t wait to see you at another camp soon!”

"I'd like to thank Raising Cane's support for this year's camp program," said Simon Boddison, Director of Soccer Operations.  "They are a partner that understands and appreciates the importance of youth sports and the positive role that it plays within the local community," 

The DDY program offers individualized attention, world-class coaching, and access to the best youth soccer facilities in Houston. We are proudly ranked #1 in the country in college commitments for both girls and boys divisions having placed three hundred and five (305) players on to college rosters with scholarships since 2017.  Register for a DDY Recreational Soccer Program near you by August 30th, 2022 to confirm your spot and secure placement on a fun, successful soccer team for the fall season.  Don't miss out on all the excitement, register NOW!

The club is very excited to announce that its annual Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign led by the Girls Academy will be brought to you by Hunter Family Orthodontics.  The money raised will help to support the Girls Academy Program, plus a yearly donation will also be provided to a local breast cancer charity.

The club has produced a pink shirt that will be sold to all members, family members and supporters in September / October. This shirt can be worn by any player (boy or girl) at their first training session of the week and during the warm-up before any game in October (International Breast Cancer Awareness Month).

"It is such an honor and a privilege to be a part of the Breast Cancer Awareness campaign with the Dynamo | Dash Youth Soccer Club,” said Dr. Ross Hunter of Hunter Family Orthodontics. “The players do a fantastic job of raising awareness throughout the month of October in our community. My mother is fortunately a breast cancer survivor, so it brings me great joy to see all the pink shirts being worn by the athletes, knowing that some of the proceeds go towards finding a cure!”

"On behalf of the club, I would like to personally thank Dr. Ross Hunter and Hunter Family Orthodontics for renewing their support for this year's Breast Cancer Awareness campaign," said Simon Boddison, DDY Director of Soccer Operations.  "It's a program that continually grows each year and has become a very important part of our annual club programming.

Dynamo Dash Youth is very excited to announce our latest corporate partner for the Woodforest community: Scott Family Dental. Our program at the Stampede Sportplex in Woodforest has forty (40) competitive, recreational and youth academy teams, along with an extensive soccer camp schedule.  We began the program in 2015, and now provide opportunities for more than 500 players and families.

Based in Woodforest, Dr. Kevin Scott has provided dental services to the local community for multiple years. "Family is important to us at Scott Family Dental — in fact, we consider family to be a cornerstone of our practice. Our sense of family extends to our patients and their loved ones. Every day, it remains our mission to offer the finest care for the entire family. We strive to provide each patient with the same level of care and attention we would wish for our own families," said Dr. Scott. Family, teamwork, and education are important values for Scott Family Dental, just like they are for us. "With every aspect of our practice from our ongoing commitment to continuing education, to our focus on making our patients feel welcome and comfortable, to our state-of-the-art technology we always keep your family’s well-being as our top priority. When you’ve planted roots in one place for as long as we have, one’s sense of family also naturally embraces the larger community. Our families have grown up here alongside those of our patients, and we are passionate about serving and giving back to the community that we cherish."

"On behalf of the club, I would like to welcome Dr Scott and his team to the Woodforest Program. We continually partner and align ourselves with businesses that care for their local communities, understand the importance of youth sports and offer an impeccable service for their own customers, said Simon Boddison, DDY Director of Soccer Operations.  "We look forward to partnering over the coming months and growing this valued relationship within the Woodforest community."
