“Throughout my 7 years Professinoally, I have been very blessed with seeing some of the best youth programs in the World train. From PSG to the Whitecaps Academy, I have seen the reason why they separate themselves as the best. With that being said, tonight with Rush, I was truly impressed with their attention to detail, technique, and overall session. It was top notch and goes right along with some of the best I have seen. I am extremely excited to see our (Dash & Rush) relationship grow and how we can help each other throughout this process.”  Ella Masar, Houston Dash Professional Player 2015

“Exposing our youth players to the knowledge and experience of professional players from the Houston Dash is a very exciting and unique opportunity. These ladies are the most elite players in the country and provide quality role models for our youth players to aspire to both on and off the field.”  Andrew Squire, Director of Coaching – ECNL
