Houston Dynamo youth programs resume 8v8 Champions League

Monthly league for U10, U11 and U12 players begins in April

The Houston Dynamo youth programs, presented by Statoil, today announced the return of the Dynamo 8v8 Champions League on April 5 for the spring 2013 season.

The Houston Dynamo Champions League (HDCL) is a five-week, eight-versus-eight tournament for boys in the U10, U11 and U12 age groups held at Houston Amateur Sports Park. The HDCL features rules designed to encourage a skillful and attack-minded brand of soccer. It also provides the opportunity for players to challenge themselves against players who are currently enrolled in the Houston Dynamo youth development system, and a chance for players to compete under the lights on the professional grade soccer fields at Houston Amateur Sports Park.

Teams may register a roster of up to 15 players and will be grouped into age-appropriate groups of four based on the team’s past results, history, and current competitive level. Games will be scheduled for Friday evenings from April 5 to May 3. The registration fee is $300 per team.
