NEW FOR FALL 2017: Parents, for your convenience, we have appointed a group of responsible parents affiliated with our program to walk your child over to the DFC Academy directly from Chandler Elementary School immediately after school each Tuesday and Thursday during the season. This will allow us to get started with practice sooner and also save you the trouble of rushing back to the fields to drop off your child. You will just have to write a dismissal note and we will take care of bringing them over as a group before soccer practice.
Key Features of Our Program:
For Boys & Girls Born In 2010, 2011, and 2012
Tuesday & Thursdays 3:30-4:45 PM at Coppens starting Tuesday, September 5th
Incredibly Convenient Location at Chandler Elementary School soccer fields
Innovative, Age-Appropriate Curriculum
Positive Learning Environment
Certified, Experienced Professional Coaches
The DFC Dragons Academy provides the highest quality soccer instruction for Duxbury's most motivated, committed, and focused U6, U7 and U8 soccer players.
The DFC U8 Academy is ideal for U6, U7 and U8 girls and boys that want more -- more soccerand also a more intense soccer experience than what other local programs provide. It is intended for those players that are prepared to be introduced to a more comprehensive soccer curriculumfocused on the development of ball mastery and fundamental technical skills. In other words, the DFC Academy is for those more committed and focused young players that are ready and willing to make soccer a priority and have already developed a basic foundation of skills through mini soccer or another "early start" soccer program. The DFC U8 Academy is not intended to be, nor is it appropriate as, a player's first soccer experience.
This seasonal program (Fall and Spring, with separate registrations for each) is designed to complement and build upon DYSA's town soccer program and provides two additional sessions per week of outdoor training including periodic intra-squad games and friendly matches against academy teams from other clubs.

An innovative, age-appropriate player development curriculum for those young players that are prepared to receive advanced instruction
Expert coaching from qualified, licensed, and trained professionals that have played and coached soccer at the highest levels
Limited enrollment that will be capped to ensure an ideal ratio of coaches to players
A friendly, small-group learning environment offering individualized instruction and a player-centric approach
Periodic intra-squad scrimmages and matches against other club-based academy programs located on the south shore
An incredibly fun and truly educational soccer experience
KEY PROGRAM DATES:
Training Sessions will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays 3:30-4:45 PM each week @ Chandler / Coppens
Program will begin on Tuesday, September 5th and run for 8 weeks
Players will have the option of choosing 1 of our 2 training days per week or attending both sessions at no additional charge

Duxbury Youth Soccer Association
Board of Directors
Massachusetts Youth Soccer Association recently launched their on-line coach education course, G / U6-8 coach licensing course. This is the entry level course designed for those folks who are coaching our youngest players.
John Burrill, Executive Director of MYSA writes the following:
"The G-Course online is especially unique in the fact that all students have a LIVE interactive instructor available for questions and discussion as they go through the course. With today's busy lifestyles we understand the problems that coaches face trying to block out time to attend a live course. In an attempt to address this problem and to provide education to those who may not otherwise seek it, we have developed a course that mirrors our live course. It is our sincere hope that every coach in Massachusetts will earn their license, and providing this course will allow all people to do so from the comfort of their own home or office.
We encourage all your coaches to become licensed and take this course. We will still be holding ‘live’ G courses as well for those who want a live instructor. You can access the G on line either thru or web site or at www.massyouthcoachingcourse.org"
Duxbury Youth Soccer will reimburse all Coaches registered in our program, who obtain a certificate of completion. We encourage all coaches to utilize this convenient training tool.
