Texas Dare To Dream Festival – January 19-20, 2019 in Houston

Dare To Dream is a new event for our youngest athletes and is designed to be a fun, developmental tournament for 12 & Under Mixed teams and 10 & Under Mixed teams (no qualification required, no club affiliation required).  The Age as of Date for both divisions will be August 1, 2018 which should increase the number of eligible athletes and hopefully increase the number of teams entered into the tournament.  The hope is all clubs throughout the Southwest Zone will enter/support this event as well as teams from outside of Texas coming to Houston to join in on the fun.  Online Team RegistrationTexas Dare to Dream Festival - Online Registration (Click Here)
