U7 – U10 RECREATIONAL (SHAL)

Dynamo/Dash Youth is proud to offer SHAL (South Houston Academy League): a skills-oriented, tiered program for its U7-U10 players. It was developed by our professional staff and follows US Soccer Federation & South Texas Youth Soccer Association (STYSA) recommended training regimens. For general questions and information about the program, please contact John Slaughter, SHAL Director of Coaching

  • Each player’s individual skills are evaluated at the beginning of the season using a dribbling exercise.
  • Teams are formed based on results of the evaluation along with input from our professional staff and division directors.
  • Teams consist of players at the same skill level
  • Teams are then assigned to a tier and games are played against teams in the same tier across the league
  • League games are scheduled within the Dynamo/Dash Youth SOUTH regions (Clear Lake, Friendswood, League City), Pearland and Galveston County
  • Special curricula developed for the U8 and U10 training sessions—ALL teams receive the same training regardless of their tier
  • Curricula ensure your child is learning what they should be learning–individual skill development (dribbling & general ball mastery)
  • Each player is part of a team where he or she has the chance to succeed
  • Professional staff on hand at each training session to demonstrate new skills and support volunteer coaches
  • Games are competitive across the entire program

As season progresses results of each game are reviewed and player and/or tier adjustments can be made
