If I missed registration, can I still sign my child
up for the fall?
Yes, but you will need to submit all of the necessary
paperwork and registration fee via mail. In order to be eligible
for a travel team (ages U9 and above), these forms must be in prior to
assessments. For more information on late registration and
assessments, click here.

What is the difference between "travel
teams" and "recreational teams"?
DASC is a member of the Central Pennsylvania Youth
Soccer League (CPYSL), and within the CPYSL there are several Divisions
-- Premier, I, II, and III. Premier, Division I and II teams are
defined as travel divisions with Premier being the most
competitive. Division III is considered a recreational division,
but does play against other local clubs and will travel to other clubs'
How far do "travel teams" travel?
All regular seasons games are against CPYSL clubs,
most of which are located in the south central Pennsylvania area.
My child is not interested in playing on a travel
team, why do they have to participate in the skill assessments?
It is not uncommon for age groups to have multiple recreational teams that could
eventually play against one another. Thus, in an effort to balance
the skill levels between these teams, we ask all players to participate
in the skill assessments held in the spring.
When do the seasons start?
In the spring season, the U9 and older programs
will begin practice in March with games scheduled for the first weekend
of April. The U6/U8 program will begin the third week of
April. In the fall, U9 and older programs begin practice in early
August, while the U6/U8 programs typically begin the first week of
school. Specific fall dates will be announced later.
Other than the uniform provided by the DASC, what
equipment is needed?
Shin guards are mandatory. In addition, players
should bring their own ball to practice (see next question for
appropriate ball size). Soccer cleats are not required, but most players
prefer them to sneakers. Also, players are encouraged to bring a
water bottle or other drink to practices and games.
Does it matter what size soccer ball we bring?
Yes, it does.
U6/U8 program uses a Size 3 ball.
U9, U10, U11 and U12 use a Size 4 ball.
U13 and up use a Size 5 ball.
