Bachmann joins the Dash through the 2026 season and the transfer is pending receipt of her P-1 Visa and International Transfer Certificate.  


"The accolades Ramona has won speak for themselves and we are thrilled to add a veteran that has not only competed at the highest level, but won major trophies along the way,” Dash General Manager Alex Singer said. “She adds a new dimension to how we approach our offense and capitalize on the opportunities we create in the final third. We look forward to watching her impact both on and off the field.”
