As many of you know, we lost an important and very active member of the Duxbury community with the passing of David Higgins.  Among other great qualities, Dave was a dedicated serial volunteer and coach across many youth sports organizations in Duxbury.
 
Duxbury Youth Soccer will make a donation to the memorial fund that has been created for the benefit of Dave's children.
 
Below are the details of the benefit fund:

IMPORTANT: Duxbury Youth Soccer Fall Registration is Still Open

Registration remains open for DYSA's Fall 2016 programs.

Follow this link to register online if you are familiar with all of our programs and just want to go straight to the registration page.

Otherwise, here's a descriptive menu of our programming options this fall:

For Our Very Youngest Players:  We are offering a brand new program called Micro Soccer.  This fun and engaging 6 week program will be held in the morning during the week and is designed to teach soccer skills in a non-competitive educational environment.  Enrollment is open to boys and girls aged U4 and U5 (children born in 2012 and 2013).  With parents participating by their side, kids will have a blast while learning basic soccer skills like chasing, running, and kicking. Classes are 45 minutes long and meet once a week. Adult participation is required.  Here's the Micro Soccer registration link.

For Those Players Just Getting Started:  Now entering its 13th year, DYSA's U6 Mini Soccer program is a true Duxbury institution.  Almost every child in town participates in this introductory soccer program.  Sessions will take place on Saturday mornings.  Here are the U6 Mini Soccer registration links.

The Next Step for U8 Players:  DYSA's U8 InTown Small-Sided Soccer.  A little bit more structure and competition in a small-sided format that promotes lots of touches in a game-like environment.  Sessions will take place on Saturday mornings.  Here are the registration links for Girls and Boys U8 InTown Small-Sided.

For Those Young Players That Want More Soccer:  DFC Dragons, Duxbury's club soccer program, offer's an intensive U6-U8 Academy program that provides the highest level of professional soccer instruction for Duxbury's most ambitious young players.  The DFC Academy runs training sessions twice a week after school during the fall  and our players also compete in small-sided jamborees several weekends each season.  Here are the registration links for the DFC Dragons U6-U8 Academy.

Our Fall In-Town Program:  We run a Duxbury-only intramural program each fall for boys and girls ages U10 thru U14.  Games take place on Saturdays and the season culminates in a championship tournament for each age bracket.  Included with this program is access to an age-appropriate skill session taught each week by our professional coaching staff.  Here are the registration links for the DYSA Fall In-Town Program.

Overview of DYSA Program Offerings

Dear Duxbury youth soccer community,

DYSA frequently evolves and improves our programming in order to ensure that we better meet your needs and that our offerings remain truly beneficial to the soccer community in Duxbury.  Our goal is to provide great soccer opportunities to our entire youth soccer community, regardless of your level of playing experience or commitment to the game of soccer.

The purpose of this email is to provide you with an overview of our current programming so that you can more easily make the best possible soccer-related decisions going forward.  Below are several exhibits designed to answer your questions and to help guide you through the potentially confusing world of youth soccer. (Click on them to open in PDF format.)

In the next week or so, we will also send out an additional communication focusing specifically on our programming for the winter and spring.  This subsequent email will help walk you through the decisions you will need to make in the weeks or month ahead.  In the meantime, we hope you find this information helpful.  Happy Holidays!

MassYSA offers On-Line Coach "G" Course

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.
