It is our mission at Dynamo Soccer Club to help your child to become a better player and a better person.  This is our Club philosophy.   We are experienced in doing so with USSF and United Soccer Coaches approved teaching methods that allow for a holistically efficient player including components of psychological, physical, technical, and tactical growth.  Our age-appropriate training is always developmentally focused, meaning that the Dynamo Academy Program does NOT focus on winning, the Dynamo Academy Program focuses on developing your child’s character and skills at their own developmental pace.  We are dedicated to the development and preparation of players to express themselves in our Travel Program.
