"Dinamo-Minsk" Academy has always been famous for its pupils. The footballers, trained at the Dinamo school, successfully perform not only at the club level and in the national teams of Belarus of different ages, but also far beyond the borders of the country.
In the 1990s, "Dinamo-Minsk" was mainly staffed by pupils from the sports school "Dinamo". "Dinamo-Minsk" Academy is known thanks to Aliaksander Khatskevich, Valiantsin Bialkevich, Aliaksander Hleb. The department of youth football of FC "Dinamo-Minsk" was founded in September 2000, when coaches Uladzimir Lukyanenka and Uladzimir Dzyatlau recruited groups of children born in 1984 and 1985. Among them were such well-known today Yan Tsihorau, Kiryl Paulyuchak, Ivan Dzenisevich, Anton Rabtsau. On the basis of this team, a special class was created in secondary school №44 in Minsk. Having taken part in the "Crystal Ball" tournament, the next year a team called "Dynamo-2" entered the second league of the Belarusian championship.
Each Dinamo junior team included many guys who today play prominent roles in Belarusian football: Siarhei Kislyak, Anton Putsila, Aliaksander Martynovich, Ihar Shytau, Vitali Trubila, Aleh Veratsila... In 2002-2003, pupils of the Academy formed the "Dinamo-Uni" team, which took part in the First League of the championship of Belarus. Since then, Belarusian Football Federation began to hold the junior championships of Belarus, in which Dinamo teams traditionally play leading roles.
