Talent Identification and Recruitment


Thank you for your interest in the Houston Dynamo Academy!

The Houston Dynamo are always on the lookout for our city’s and country’s best and brightest young soccer players.

The Dynamo Academy (MLS) is committed to providing the best training environment possible,  utilizing a clear Game Model and development methodology that optimizes player development and opportunities for the young player.

Each team is overseen by a full time coach and technical staff that includes, technical, athletic, academics and social components. The goal of the Academy is to develop strong soccer players and good people.  Vertical integration with our Houston Dynamo First team is a top priority and you will see players from the Academy join into First team training sessions on a regular basis.  The goal is to develop young players who have a professional mindset while enjoying the game at the highest possible levels here in the United States.

Our priority is to provide each individual in our Academy the opportunity to develop to their highest potentials. Each season, we have developed our players to a level where they are signing a professional contract with our MLS First Team, USL Second Team, or in obtaining a scholarship to a top accredited NCAA University.
