After recent successful stints in Clifton and Dean Middle Schools, Futbolito in the City, Powered by Shell Energy, is gearing up to make it's return to Memorial Park starting on May 4th. The five-week program is completely free of charge and open to the public.
"To have these opportunities when you're younger to see people that you look up to, have come from a similar walk of life as you, engage with you and share in a sport you love," said Dash forward Diana Ordóñez after her visit to Dean Middle School. "That's so special for me. I was so excited to come to Futbolito."
A player from either the Houston Dynamo, Houston Dash, or Dynamo 2 will visit one session of each Futbolito in the City program across Houston.
Futbolito in the City powered by Shell Energy provides free soccer programming and free play to youth in the greater Houston area. Dynamo and Dash Charities provides free coaching for kids ages 6-14 for 90 minutes once a week for ten weeks (split into two five-week sessions). Futbolito in the City is hosted at local parks, schools and Houston Dynamo FC/Dash mini pitch locations. This program uses the power of soccer to provide an opportunity for youth to pursue their interest in playing the sport and gain new skills.
