2020 DYSA Fall Instruction Program


DYSA has gone to great lengths to develop a revised Instructional Program for the upcoming 2020 fall season that will allow members to enjoy the game but also ensure their safety during the COVID pandemic.  The safety guidelines that DYSA has implemented requires that the Instructional Program only allow for a limited number of players for each age group. Given the limited availability DYSA is currently prioritizing Dartmouth residents.

Safety guidelines surrounding the pandemic are very fluid.  DYSA is constantly monitoring information from local authorities as well as Mass Youth Soccer Association. During the Instructional Program season there is a very good chance that the guidelines will change. We ask that members be patient and flexible in working with DYSA if program modifications are required.
