LATDP Elite is an affiliate program of the Houston Dynamo Academy that provides high-level players (U13 – U19) in Louisiana with the chance to train with and play against the best players and teams in the country under the direction of highly qualified coaches. Elite players from hub locations in Baton Rouge, Lafayette, and New Orleans will come together to form teams to provide players with a greater prospect of identification in all levels of play.
The purpose of LATDP Elite is to assemble elite players within the Louisiana Dynamo pyramid to provide players with greater exposure to higher-level training and playing opportunities, and an increased prospect of identification.
The vision of LATDP Elite is to provide exposure and a high-quality soccer program for Louisiana’s elite players within the three collaborating clubs. This partnership will result in the creation of a single entity that will combine our efforts and resources to create a club with high-level talent, coaching, and facilities to play and compete at the highest level.
