2019-2020 DAP Calendar (All DAP events - gamedays, practice days, and more)
Our Developmental Academy program is designed for players aged 6, 7, and 8. We provide a structured, yet empowering environment for young soccer players to learn to make decisions, make mistakes, and play with freedom within tactical structures while gaining technical skills to execute their decisions. This program is beneficial for players interested in playing Travel Soccer.
U7/U8 Program is for players born in 2012/2013
U9 Program is for players born in 2011
Practices are Monday and Fridays, and Games are Saturdays
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.
DAP Costs and Fees
U7/U8 Boys and Girls One Season Fee: $170 Due upon Acceptance.

Parents at Practice vs. Parents at Games:
We ask that you allow us to have your children for 2 hours a week uninterrupted so that we can teach them the necessary skills to become better players and people. We do not allow parents to sit or stand on the sidelines of practices. There is usually an area about 30 yards away or so where parents will group together and get to know each other. You will pick up on this after the first couple practices. If you or a family member is too close to the practice field, we will politely ask you to step away a bit to allow your child to function the best at practice. At the end of practice, we will walk all the players down towards the parents where you can pick them up and head home. We ask for your cooperation and understanding regarding this matter.
Each child will receive 2 grey practice shirts. On game days we ask that your child show up wearing one of the grey practice shirts and also bring their jersey with them. We ask for your cooperation and understanding regarding this matter. There are a few reasons for that:
