Homegrown Player List

Dynamo Academy players that meet the required levels of performance can be designated as a 'homegrown' player. These players remain eligible to be signed to the Dynamo First team without having to enter the MLS SuperDraft.

Players are designated as 'homegrown' before entering a four-year college or the United States U-17 National Team residency program.
