Eight players from Centers of Excellence invited to train with Junior Academy

By Justin Neese

The following eight players from this season’s Center of Excellence training program have been invited by Dynamo staff coaches to trial with the Junior Academy program for the next several weeks with an eye towards potentially joining the Junior Academy for the remainder of the spring season. These players have been invited to this elite level training program because of their mentality and focus in training sessions, their skillful performances in the Center of Excellence training session and the Houston Dynamo Champions League, and their positive attitude and work ethic both on and off the field.

“The Center of Excellence exists to provide professional coaching and training to 8-12 year old boys and girls so that we can help a great number of soccer players to further develop their soccer skills, to increase their love of the game, and to connect the Houston community more fully with the Houston Dynamo," said Houston Dynamo Soccer Program Manager Justin Neese. "The program also exists to identify players who might potentially have the ability and mentality to play in other Dynamo programs and teams. That these players have been indentified and offered this opportunity is excellent news for our program and for all of its players.”

Congratulations to these players!
