“The club gets to compete against the very best in the country with first class facilities over a five day window.  So from a developmental perspective it’s a great challenge for the players.  It’s also a great opportunity for all our prospective student-athletes to play in front of hundreds of college coaches and professional scouts.”  Alex Cardenas, Head Coach, Houston Dynamo Youth U18/19 Boys Development Academy.  

“The opportunity for the players to play at this event is truly a wonderful experience.  The facilities provided along with a captive audience of college / national team coaching staff allows the player an ideal opportunity to be seen competing on a national level.  The very best players are all in attendance and it’s a great way to close out the fall season.”  Steven Grave, Head Coach, Houston Dynamo Youth U16/17 Boys Development Academy.
