Tonight, the Dynamo Academy, presented by Statoil, U-16 team faces Real Salt Lake-Arizona at 8:30 p.m. at Houston Amateur Sports Park in a crucial U.S. Soccer Development Academy Finals Week group match. Admission and parking are free. 

Former Dynamo defender Eddie Robinson is the head coach of the U-16 club and helped guide the team to the elite Finals Week in just his second season in his new coaching role.

U.S. Soccer spoke with Eddie this week about his new role. From the article:

"The biggest part is understanding the psychology of 15- and 16-year-olds,” Robinson said. “Understanding that there’s so much outside the field that I can’t do anything with. My job is to create an environment that not only teaches them soccer and fundamentals, but also builds character. That’s what we’ve done here.”

Oh what a night…

I am so proud to be part of a organization that honors heroes of all sizes and ages. A small group of Dynamo Charities board members supported Chris Canetti for the second Soccer Night in Newtown in mid-May. Last month the fallen firefighters were honored at the stadium by the team, and, just as importantly, by the soccer community. And our last home match was Armed Forces Appreciation Night, where we brought over 1,500 service personnel to the game. It was also a very personal night for me as my father was the service man honored by the Dynamo at halftime for his 33 years of military service, starting as a private and retiring as a colonel. He and my mom were very touched by the warm applause from our fantastic fans.

Next up are the Potters from Stoke City Football Club! They have a strong squad including U.S. internationals Brek Shea and our friend Geoff Cameron, as well as German international Robert Huth, will be here July 24th. The BBVA Compass Dynamo Charities Cup is not just a game, it is a community event – and to that, we will be announcing more events leading up to the game soon. Come join us, get your tickets and really cool scarf now! And, you can actually be part of the festivities around the game, including ball delivery, coin toss, etc. Here is the link for details.

On August 13th, Chewy and Will (and hopefully many of their teammates) will let the kids shave their heads at Dogwood in Midtown. The doors of Dogwood will open to the public at 4 p.m. for a celebrity pour with proceeds benefitting Bald is Beautiful / Curing Children’s Cancer Fund. Then on Saturday, to top off our celebration of Bald is Beautiful, we are shooting to set a world record with 400 head shaves in one hour on Orange Avenue just prior to the August 17th game. More information and to register to be part of the world record attempt go here. Looking for youth soccer teams to step up here – you need haircuts for school anyway… .

We are also proud to announce our first four sponsors for the ADA Houston Tour de Cure bike jersey – Halliburton, Bicycle World, Camelot Realty Group and K-Pop restaurants. You can join the best team out there for the September 21st ride – remember that you have to raise at least $150 to get the coolest bike jersey in town. If you or your company want to be a sponsor for the jersey (good spots still available), contact Maria Duran at 713.276.7533.

Still to come in October is Adam’s Toy Chest benefitting B.I.G. Love (looking for the supporter groups in particular to jump on this one), and of course our annual Dynamo Celebration to cap off the season.

To close this edition, I would like to again thank the Dynamo players for their commitment to the community, for giving their time and literally the shirts off their back to improve the lives of all in the Houston area and beyond. While the Dynamo Charities board members work hard, we are nothing without the support and commitment of the players.
