I believe this was mentioned by Daniel on here a few days ago. FC Dallas announced today a move to help boost their overall status as the top soccer club in North Texas but forming their own women's team to play in the Women's Premier Soccer League (WPSL), starting next month.

"This is another way for FC Dallas to continue broadening opportunities for players of the highest quality," FC Dallas Director of Coaching Chris Hayden said. "The WPSL is a strong national league. It has been a great way for college players to get significant experience for a number of years."

FCD will play in the Big Sky Conference, a two division conference where Dallas will be apart of the South division. FCD will play along side American Eagles S.C., Arkansas Comets, Fort Worth Panthers, Houston South Select, Oklahoma Alliance F.C. and the Tulsa Spirit.

FC Dallas youth coach Darrin Hedges will serve as head coach of the team. Open to high school seniors and above, tryouts are set to begin this Saturday, April 16 from 7 to 9 p.m. at Greenhill School in Addison, Texas. Additional tryout dates at Greenhill School are set for Sunday, April 17 (7 - 9 p.m.), Wednesday, April 20 (7:30 - 9 p.m.) and Saturday, April 23 (7 - 9 p.m.).

What do you make of FC Dallas starting up their own women's team? It's no WPS team but at least it is something right?
