    • This is new, and is great news for our overage 6th graders.
    • Under this set up all 6th graders with 2006 DOB would still be able to play U12.
    • If they kept our current set up  Fall 2018 and Spring 2019, 2006 DOB would have to be u14. The team would play against 7th and 8th graders and our team would be all 6th graders.
    •  I am sure some of our new 5th graders wanted to move up. They will move up in the spring 2019. Basically our current teams will stay the same.
  • Anyone born at anytime during an entire year will be in these age groups.
  • U8 =       DOB 2010 and 2011

What is the Dover Soccer Association (DSA) competitive soccer program?  Competitive soccer is for boys and girls.

  • The boys and girls are on separate teams. Practice is twice a week, and there is usually one game on the weekend.
  • Children are expected to be at most of the practices and games.
  • Please understand that your child should have previous soccer experience, be able to get along with others, and willing to listen to their coach. (Rec soccer is a better place for beginners and children that have difficulty following directions and getting along with others. When they mature in this regard in rec soccer they can transition over to competitive).  
  • Other teams in the league are in Bolivar, New Phila., Alliance, Carrollton, Minerva, Canton South, & Tuslaw.
  • Usually, the DSA has 3-5 teams per age group. Therefore, DSA teams usually only play2-3 away games per season. Practice is twice a week, and there is usually one game on the weekend.
