DSC Fall House General Information Page
*Our program is open to all Western New York families. You do not have to live in the City of Buffalo to join our club!
NOTE: New York State has deemed it safe for low and moderate-risk youth sports, including soccer, to begin practicing and playing games on July 6. DSC will run multiple programs between July 6 and the start of Fall House League and will evaluate our best practices, while continuously monitoring state and local government guidelines. DSC has developed safety protocols in accordance with the state guidelines. Click the following link to access the DSC Safety Protocols for July. We will update these for August and September, as needed.
Please read through the info below, as we've made some adjustments to the previous structure in response to COVID-19. In summary:
-Social distancing will be practiced outside of regular practice/games (but we will be playing small-sided games and full Saturday games, as usual),
-We will not hold training for U3 this fall,
-Age groups will practice on a set schedule (see practice schedule below),
-All training will be led by DSC Staff, not volunteer parents,
-Players will be limited to two parents/guardians in attendance
