These athletes come from many parts of the country and world. Over the years, the Dragons have played other college and state club programs such as Brigham Young University, Utah State University, Idaho State University, Boise State University, Utah Valley University, Arizona State University, University of Wyoming, and many more.
In the fall of 2016, the Dragons joined the West Coast Soccer Association (WCSA) and are currently competing in the Intermountain Conference.
