HOUSTON, TX - The Houston Dash wrapped up a two-day tryout on Sunday. The women's professional soccer team is expecting to ask 6-10 players from the trial to join the team for preseason training.
"This was just a chance for me to finally fill my potential and see where I stood up against some of the highest level players," Larissa Campos, a former soccer player at Baylor, said at the tryout.
The Dash have six players planning to play in the upcoming FIFA Women's World Cup. That presents a great opportunity for these amateur players to get a taste of professional life.
"I think there's a good opportunity for some of these girls to come into preseason and get a chance at trying to make the roster, and then trying to be an amateur player while our World Cup girls are away," Dash managing director Brian Ching said.
The Dash are the newest National Women`s Soccer League team. Houston finished their inaugural season in 2014 with five wins, three ties and 16 losses.
