Are you wondering what to do with all those outgrown cleats sitting in the back of your child’s closet or that size 3 soccer ball you no longer need?  Donegal Youth Soccer is proud to give back to our community. We believe that everybody has the right to play the game and to feel that thrill and excitement that comes from the ultimate challenge.  If you have gently used soccer equipment, consider donating them to us and we will pass them along to families in need within our community. We will accept your gently used soccer cleats, shin guards, soccer balls and most other slightly used soccer equipment.

If you would like to donate your equipment, or are in need of equipment for the upcoming season, please contact jennyrun4@gmail.com.

We offer summer camps & winter clinics

DYS typically offers a “Winter Warm Up” in mid-February to mid March and a “Summer Camp” in July. However, given the COVID outbreak, there are no DYS Camps or Clinics currently scheduled. Please check back here for future events.
