General Information

General Information

The Dynamo Travel Program excels in offering a physically and psychologically safe environment for children of all ages to enjoy participation in soccer at varying competitive levels, at a reasonable financial cost. "We strive to develop quality people, quality players.".

Dynamo Soccer Club is a not-for-profit organization established to promote and develop an interest in soccer in Hanover County and surrounding areas by sponsoring, organizing, and operating competitive, developmental, and recreational soccer teams for children aged 3, up to 19.  Dynamo Travel is owned by Commonwealth Soccer Programs L.L.C.

The Dynamo Soccer Club Travel program strives to create quality people, to create quality players, and to win matches without compromising our character and ideals.

As with any developmental process, players develop over long periods of time, through hard work, effective training, and dedication to personal improvement. The program places the most emphasis on training, where coaches have the best opportunity to teach players. During games, our coaches reinforce training themes and goals and instruct players at key moments and within individually oriented environments. Gone are the days of yelling from the sidelines. Our players are expected to find solutions to on-field situations themselves through creative thinking and pro-active play.

Dynamo Soccer Club, Travel Program, holds our coaches, staff, players, and parents to the highest standards of educational practices and professionalism, and is confident our players and families will enjoy their travel soccer experience as a result.

Travel Coaches

Dynamo Travel Coaches

Dynamo Soccer Club has an extensive professional coaching staff.  Many have played collegiately, coached collegiately, and some have played professionally.  Dynamo prides itself on having a diverse and experienced staff that is licensed and qualified in the latest youth development techniques.

The coaching staff works from a curriculum delivered at the grass-roots level by the Director of Coaching.  Dynamo is developing players through a consistent soccer environment where players can learn and thrive.  

There are three primary objectives in our player development structure:

  1. To develop quality people who exhibit examples of leadership, responsibility, honesty, acountability and sportsmanship
  2. To develop quality players that demonstrate clean technique and skills, quick and creative decisions, and an understanding of the game of soccer. 
  3. To win in all areas of life, without sacrificing or ignoring the first two objectives.

All of our coaches are placed in our program because they have an immense amount of soccer knowledge to give back to the children who participate in the game.  Coaches are typically placed with teams for 2 seasons only and then teams are passed on to other coaches.  Dynamo truly believes it "takes a village to raise a child".  The Dynamo Travel staff works within our curriculum and club philosophy.
