The Houston Dynamo have announced details of an open tryout for aspiring soccer players. The 2018 Dynamo Trials will begin on Saturday, May 12 at Houston Sports Park and are open to soccer players 17 years of age and older.

This is the 13th consecutive year in which tryouts have been held. More than 240 soccer players from around the world participated in last year’s edition of Dynamo Trials, competing for a spot on the Dynamo first team. This year, players will also be vying for a place on the Dynamo Academy Under-23 team, which will open its fourth season competing in the PDL this summer.

The tryout is comprised of a fitness test, skills competition and a game against the Dynamo Academy U-18 team. Participants who pass the trial, held on May 12, will be invited back the following day for the skills competition. From there, select players will be invited to compete against the Dynamo Academy. Players will be evaluated by first team and academy staff.

Registration for Dynamo Trials is $130 and includes a Dynamo Trials T-shirt and one ticket to a future Dynamo home game at BBVA Compass Stadium. Walkups will NOT be accepted.
