Recreation League Coaches
Because we believe in not only having fun, but also in building soccer skills, Dynamo strongly encourages recreation league coaches to take a U5-U8 or U10-12 Youth Module license course by PA West Soccer. There is no fee but you will have to REGISTER to take the course.

Travel League Coaches:
Beyond the Youth Modules course, the Dynamo board has established a policy whereby travel league coaches are required to obtain an E coaching license offered by PA West. The purpose of this policy is to ensure that coaches have the teaching skills to be able to teach players the game of soccer consistent with the Dynamo philosophy. All coaches, including those who have played soccer in high school, college or beyond, will also benefit from taking coach courses.
We strongly encourage all our coaches to take advantage of these great resources and incorporate their suggestions to enhance your practices. It will make your practices easy for you and
fun for your players and keep you on track with Dynamo philosophies:
