2020 Scott Dymond College Showcase School Lettter

Our Academy will particiate in 2020 Scott Dymond FC Dallas Showcase – Frisco Texas, March 6,7,8, 2020



The new Scott Dymond College Showcase logo is in honour of Scott Dymond's memory. Scott was the FC Dallas College Director as well as the U-19 Premier coach while he was with FC Dallas. Scott lost his battle with cancer in September 2018.

“When I think about what Scott Dymond did here and for this community it’s amazing. FC Dallas touches people’s lives in so many ways, but Scott being the College Director here changed the trajectory of many young men and young women’s lives.” -Dan Hunt

A lot of thought and effort went into the logo designed for the showcase. Each part represents something related to Scott and FC Dallas including:
Shape: The College Showcase logo utilizes the FC Dallas crest as the bottom of the logo to anchor the connection between our Academy and Professional teams.

Stripes: The red stripes signify each year Scott worked with us. There are eight for his eight years.
Star: The star is carried over from the bull in the FC Dallas logo to represent the tie between the teams and future stars.

Colors: The colors pay homage to the ones used in the FC Dallas logo

Our Academy will particiate with the U16 and U19 Teams in 2020 Scott Dymond FC Dallas Showcase – Frisco Texas, March 6,7,8, 2020

This year we will fly to Dallas on Friday March 6th in the morning. We will play two games on the Saturday and one game on the Sunday and fly home on Sunday evening.

It will be great for our boys to visit this University and play them on their great facility.  Jim Findlay is a good friend who is a Scarborough boy, a Wexford boy who went to the USA on scholarship and played at Wheeling Jesuit. The rest is history, he has settled and has his Family as you will see below.

Findlay attended Wheeling Jesuit University and played soccer there from 1992 to 1995.  He was midfielder/forward for the Cardinals and was a four-year All–West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WVIAC) pick. He also earned WVIAC Player of the Year honors as a senior in 1995.  He was a four-year all-region team honoree during his playing days and capped off his career as a starter in the Umbro Senior Bowl, an all-star game featuring the nation’s top the Division II and III players.  Findlay graduated from Wheeling with a Bachelor of Arts degree in criminal justice in 1996.

Findlay is a native of Toronto, Ontario. He and his wife, Chrissy, reside in Selinsgrove, Pa., with their daughter, Caitlyn, and son, Colin.

Thursday August 29th

While in Philadelphia we will visit UPENN and Drexel University as well we will scrimmage the Philadelphia Union Academy on Thursday August 29th in the evening at their soccer complex.  One of our academy players Daniel Festa is taking his MBA at the Wharton School of Business at UPENN. Daniel went on athletic scholarship to NCAA Division 1 Manhattan College and after graduation worked for Morgan Stanley and now is taking MBA, last year he gave us the tour at UPENN so I am hoping he will be able to do the same this year. 

A member of the Ivy League, our vision of sports goes beyond wins and losses. Penn athletics are built on character first, and continued development as young adults who are both students and athletes.


Penn’s undergraduate students pursue more than 90 majors across four schools and engage in interdisciplinary programs that make the resources of all 12 Penn schools available as they forge new paths in research and scholarship.

Ranked in the top of Kiplinger’s Best Values in Private Universities, the University of Pennsylvania is committed to making its practical, powerful, and flexible Ivy League education available to the best and brightest students, regardless of their economic circumstances. A generous financial aid budget and inclusive aid policies make matriculating at Penn an attainable goal for talented hardworking students from the widest possible range of backgrounds.



We will visit Drexel University that is right next to UPENN.  I have had many players go on athletic scholarship to Drexel University, they are well known for their Co-op program. It is a very good University and their soccer team plays in a very good Colonial Conference.

Philadelphia Union

Our Academy has a good relationship with Philadelphia Union and it’s soccer academy.  Iain Munro who is one of the Staff Coaches is from the same town I am from in Scotland. He played soccer for Scotland as well as coached and played at the professional level for many years. At the same time Iain earned his education from Jordan Hill – Glasgow University as a PE. Teacher and has all his FIFA Coaching badges. Tommy Wilson, from Scotland is the Academy Director and their academy is producing players for the next level. An excellent soccer academy and their first team is in 1st place.
