Eddie Robinson discusses new coaching role as Dynamo Academy U-16s compete in Finals Week

By Matt Pedersen

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.”
