FC Dallas held a full training session on Wednesday evening at Toyota of Lewisville Railroad Park. The session was hosted by the Great Lewisville Area Soccer Association (GLASA). Fans were able to watch training and meet the players afterward. An estimated crowd of 250-300 turned out for the event.
FC Dallas beat writer Daniel Robertson asked coach Schellas Hyndman about getting out into the community:
“It’s wonderful, wonderful. Anytime we can do something in the community, as I mentioned to the players, it’s an opportunity to give something back to the community. No professional [sports] organization can survive without the community supporting them. This is just one way for us to show our appreciation to be a part of the greater Lewisville soccer association which is a good soccer association. These are wonderful facilities here and this all came about because somebody had a vision that youth soccer and other sports were important to this community. We’re very very happy to be a part of that and I thought that the facilities again were very good, the field was in great shape and we were able to do a normal training session. That’s very important for us because no team is capable of giving away training days. So we were able to get a good training in and I think for us it was 100 percent a great event.”
