Dash Development Academy makes strong showing at Winter Showcase

The U.S. Soccer Development Academy Winter Showcase took place in Lakewood Ranch, Florida between December 6-10 and the Dash Development Academy U15, U16/17 and U18/19 teams got in on the action, with a combined tournament record of 5-2-2 and a combined 17 goals scored over the course of the tournament.

The Winter Showcase was an ideal opportunity for college recruiting with over 300 college coaching staff pre-registered for the 2017 event representing colleges from across the country which included over 200+ from NCAA Division I schools. 

With 315 games taking place over the course of the five days, the U.S. Soccer Girls' Development Academy Winter Showcase offered first class opportunities for talent identification. Each game was scouted and evaluated by a U.S. Technical Advisor or Scout, while the U.S. Federation's entire Youth National Team Staff was on site for talent identification opportunities to evaluate current YNT pool players as well as potential players for future camps.
