Academy ID

Academy ID programs are offered as tryouts for male players aged 13-18 seeking an opportunity to showcase their ability and earn a Dynamo Academy roster position. Camps identify prospects for their suitability in a series of Academy style training sessions, performance testing and scrimmages against current Academy players. Academy ID programs are offered as Summer and Winter camp programs and as Residential Camps at the Houston Sports Park. Academy ID registrations that occur during the regular MLS season include individual registrations with a free companion ticket to select Houston Dynamo games at BBVA Compass Stadium.


Four-day, three-hour camps held at the Houston Sports Park twice yearly with one camp in the late summer and one in December. Travel and accommodation are not provided with registration. A list of local hotels for overseas or out-of-state players can be found at
