Policy:

    2. How much the team spent – documentation needed to show payment to the fundraising vendor (i.e. copy of check, invoice marked “paid” from the vendor, etc.)

Soccer Programs

We have a variety of programs available for all age groups.

And Me

For our youngest players, we offer a fun, encouraging introduction to the game. With a coach's direction, parents help teach their child basic skills such as dribbling, passing and shooting through fun drills and games.

Select (U9-U19)

For players 8 and up who would like to continue to develop in a more competitive environment, DYS offers both boys and girls select teams.

Intramural
(U6-U8)

We offer intramural play to teach the foundational skills of the game and participate in small-sided games that allow players to maximize their touches on the ball and encourage continued player development.

Camps & Clinics

For those who need a little extra practice during the off season or want to improve on their game.

Recreational
(U10-U19)

For players 8 and up who enjoy playing the game and want to continue to develop in a less competitive environment, DYS offers both boys and girls recreational teams.

Forward Pass Program

If you have gently used soccer equipment, consider donating them to us and we will pass them along to those in need within our community.
