Global Squad 2014 Recap

To say Global Squad 2014 was a success would be an understatement. The Gold and Red Dragons set records and accomplished things never seen before by any group of Global Squad players. We saw the program get a lot of recognition from notable publications and recruiting services. We saw coaches show more interest in recruiting our players than ever before. We saw our youngest group of players more competitive than in previous years.

The Gold Dragons (B) had a tough time overcoming injuries and only won four games. However, five players were not only able to get recruited, but one got placed at one of the best academic D-III programs in the country.

  • The Global Squad was featured in Sports Illustrated
  • The Global Squad won a combined 25 games (previous high 17)
  • The Global Squad won 3 tournament championships (previous high 1)
  • The Red Dragons (B) won 3 tournament games (never won a single game prior)
  • All four teams combined for 9 wins in one weekend (previous high 4)
  • All four teams won a game in one weekend (never done before)
  • Gold Dragon players were offered 8 D-I & D-II scholarships in July
  • Kasper Christiansen was featured as "the next top Euro prospect"
  • Our first NCAA Certified event attracted over 30 college coaches

The final week of Global Squad 2014 was another week to remember. The Gold Dragons (A) won a tournament championship – the 2nd of the summer. They also nearly beat Team Takeover, after leading by 3 at halftime, in Atlantic City. Gold Dragons (B) went 2-1 – with their only loss coming against Gold (A) in the West Chester Classic Championship game.

The Red Dragons (A) nearly went 2-1 in their final tournament. Unfortunately they lost two games at the buzzer, but clearly showed the ability to win an entire tournament. Red Dragons (B) won their 3rd game of the summer against a tough team from Delaware.

When the games were all over we saw something that truly makes Global Squad special. Just 1-month ago most of these players came from many different countries, completely different backgrounds, and were strangers to one another. After playing and training together they became, not just teammates, but great friends. We hosted an awards banquet and this new found friendship culminated with a jersey exchange. It was a truly special moment.
