The Dartmouth FC Fall Program is designed to allow players to experience a higher level of competitive soccer while maintaining an instructional component. The program is administered by the South Coast Soccer League. Games are typically played on Saturday afternoons against opponents from neighboring towns (i.e. Fairhaven, Fall River, Norton, Bourne). The season is comprised of 6 games (3 home and 3 away) and begins on September 11th. There are no games on Columbus Day weekend unless a makeup game is required. Practices are typically once a week but it is left to the coach’s discretion.
There are no standings kept for grades 3 and 4. Grades 5-8 will maintain standings and there will be playoffs in early November.
Registration fee is $80 which is used to pay referees, SCSL registration fees, and to provide players with a soccer jersey.
Players in grades 3 & 4 should expect to receive equal amount of playing time. For grades 5 and above, equal playing time in not guaranteed and playing time is issued at the coach's discretion.
Tryouts are held at the coach's discretion or if the number of players exceeds the number of available roster positions.
