As the summer winds down, we wanted to take time to share a few things about our experience in Houston. We are incredibly grateful for the chance to have worked with an established game-changer in the use of sport for good like YMCA. Together with our partner, Hidden Gems continued to draw on our coaching curriculum that focuses on building high-impact character attributes. We worked with 30 wonderful girls and received feedback from parents that exposure to professional players triggered newfound ambition and self-belief that were previously unseen before attending YMCA’s camp. We’d like to send a sincere thank you to our professional coaches on the Houston Dash for their investment in the empowerment of these young players . Take a look at the picture below and get ready for next season!!
