DYSA is proud to again offer the USSF E Level Coaching licensing class on 12/11 and 12/18. This two day class is available to anyone that has completed the F license: https://dcc.ussoccer.com/ The last time we offered this class we had 80 registrants for 40 spots.
(you need to use the same email address to register for the F and the E licenses or you will not be allowed to register for the E license).
There is some pre-coursework involved. So please register early to allow enough time to complete the coursework in this very busy time of year.
As you know, DYSA is a magnet location for the best coaches in the area. We’re recognized as making significant investment and offering tremendous support or our coaches and players. We consider coaching licensing as the #1 factor in coach selection when there are multiple coaching options in a given age group. It’s not the only factor but it’s a darn significant one. We encourage every coach in the league to have at least their F, if not their E license. Having an E or higher license greatly increases your odds of being chosen to coach in your age group and will help you to do a better job too!
If you’ve never coached before — this is an excellent place to start.
If you’re an experienced coach: Never stop improving yourself and your players - pursue licensing and certification.

Players should come to tryouts wearing a jersey or tee-shirt with a number on it. If a player does not have one, we will provide a number at the field house prior to the tryout. Each player should also wear soccer cleats and shin pads, and bring a soccer ball to the tryout.
The fields for each age group will be posted on the bulletin board and on the building walls the day of the tryout. Please try to arrive at the DYSA fields at least 15 minutes before each tryout. Players should try to attend tryouts on both tryout dates. Let the coach know if you are unable to do so.
Those players that do not have access to a computer may register at the DYSA field house prior to their tryout. Come early!!

Our annual fundraiser is not only a fun evening for our parents but also a means to help keep the cost of soccer affordable for every child in Dartmouth that wants to play. We use these funds not only to invest in the program’s success but additionally provide scholarships as well as needs based scholarships for those families unable to pay. Our commitment is to provide the ultimate learning experience for those enthusiastic including novice players, in hopes that they will continue to love the sport and continue to develop their skills into a high school or more competitive level.
Tickets may be purchased through DYSA’s website or at the concession stand. Buy one ticket get one free offer for coaches and assistants.

1) Pink Socks: Socks will be available by Friday for individuals and teams that want to purchase them. They are $5 a pair, and you can contact Michelle Sparks as indicated below.
Reminder: At the club level, the entire team must wear them or the entire team will not wear them. At the SCSL and rec levels, that’s up to the specific coach.
2) Bracelets: Pink plastic bracelets will be available next week, and we will sell them for $1. Michelle Sparks will be the point of contact. Reminder: players can’t wear these during matches….but they are a great way to show your support.
3) Goal Challenge: This weekend, we are kicking off a voluntary fundraiser for Cancer Awareness Month. Vipers and SCSL players that are interested can collect sponsors to donate for each goal that their team scores during the month of October of 2016. A donation sheet is attached for each player to use. We will ask team managers to report on who on their team is participating.
4) Juggling Challenge: Later in the month of October we will coordinate a juggling challenge. Vipers, SCSL, and rec players that are interested can collect sponsors to donate for each juggle that they can do at on a designated day. More information on this will follow in the next week or so.
Bracelets and socks will also be available for sale at DYSA on Saturdays during the rec program hours.
