Surprise Practice

Surprise Practice

Throughout the year, the Houston Dynamo and Dash will surprise local soccer teams by sending a Dynamo or a Dash player out to a practice for youth soccer associations in the greater Houston area. These practices will be held by the youth team's coaching staff, with a Dynamo/Dash player, coach and/or alumni assisting with the team's training. At the end of each practice, there will be an opportunity for the kids to take photos and obtain autographs. All age levels are eligible to participate.

Unified Team Presented by 76®

Dedicated to promoting social inclusion through shared sports training and competition experiences, Unified teams join people with and without intellectual disabilities on the same team. It was inspired by a simple principle: training together and playing together is a quick path to friendship and understanding. Teams are made up of people of similar age and ability, which makes practices more fun and games more challenging and exciting for all. Having sport in common is just one more way that preconceptions and false ideas are swept away. The Houston Dynamo FC Unified Team is presented by 76®.
