Houston Dynamo streamlines its Academy

By Loren Nelson, 01/02/17, 3:45AM CST


Youth and academy registrations are now all part of 'one-stop-shop'

Webmaster of the Week: January 2-8


Adrian Moses


Houston Dynamo Academy


Director of Soccer Programs

Use of platform:

Registration, Sitebuilder


Moses grew up just south of London in Reigate and attended St. Mary’s University in Twickenham. He made his Dynamo debut in 2010 and lists Quadrophenia as his favorite movie, Workaholics as his favorite TV show and The Jam as his favorite band.

What he does:

Moses runs the community soccer programs connected to the Dynamo’s Academy teams. He helped oversee the Academy’s recent transition to the SportsEngine platform, a project driven by the desire to offer standardized registration sessions for both youth and academy programs. “Now we’ve got a one-stop shop,” Moses said. “Parents can come in and register their kids for a youth program, and, if they make it into our academy they are still familiar with the system they are in.” The Youth Programs landing page is loaded with information, much of it organized by using the Tab Element. The Development Centers page uses the Table Builder to show the location areas, dates and age group times for the training sessions offered throughout the Houston area. There’s also a link to the Development Centers registration session. A video at the top of the Goalkeeper Training page shows Academy goalkeeper coach Nathan Thackeray and Dynamo goalkeeper coach Paul Rogers leading specialized drills and training sessions.

Making his mark:

Moses serves as the face and voice of the Dynamo’s youth programs. As such, he often helps craft news articles announcing new partnerships, camps, clinics, clubs and facilities. The most recent example is a news article about the Dynamo’s enhanced partnership with the YMCA of Greater Houston.
