All-Access: A Drive to Paint

NASCAR has always had colorful characters, and since 1984, it has had colorful infields with increasingly intricate paintings promoting race sponsors. The process is a lot more interesting than just watching paint dry as a GPS system, not stencils, are used to create the artwork

All-Access: Rugby Rising

All-Access: From Pigskin to Pit Stops

Arlington native Boone Stutz made it to the top level of football, playing two seasons in the NFL. Now he’s enjoying the top level of a different sport, serving as the jack/gas man in Danica Patrick’s pit crew.

Referees Also Here to Develop

The Dallas Cup gives youth teams a rare chance to experience international competition, and the same goes for the referees who are also trying to develop their skills with the goal of someday reaching the top level of their sport.

Foreigners Feel Right at Home

One of the most unique and enjoyed features of the Dallas Cup is the HomeStay Program, which has foreign players and referees stay with local families. It’s a big commitment for the families, but it’s vital to the tournament’s success as it saves teams as much as $50,000 on hotels, meals and travel.

Community Outreach

In addition to developing players on the field, the Dallas Cup strives to develop people off of it. One of the ways it achieves this is having teams visit local schools and hospitals to show them the positive impact they can make away from soccer.

Calling All Volunteers!

The Dallas Cup is a huge event and it takes a huge effort to make it happen, and that effort is made up mostly by volunteers, some of whom take vacation time from their full-time jobs to help keep the tournament running.

Breaking Barriers Through Technology

The Dallas Cup brings teams from all over the world to the Metroplex, and with that comes a lot of language barriers. Thankfully, advances in technology are making it easier than ever for different cultures to communicate with one another.

All-Access: What is Equestrian?

Brian Sandler details the journey that put her in position to go where no woman had gone before.

All-Access: Sidekicks Dance Team
