DUYSC Programs

In-House Recreation Program

DUYSC provides a healthy activity through it's recreational and small sided games program.  This program emphasizes FUN, and de-emphasizes winning at all costs.  Every child is guaranteed playing time and the game is taught in a fun and enjoyable atmosphere.

This program is for the local youth and is held within the Town of Dover, and all games are played within the Town of Dover.  This program is for younger age groups ranging from 4-12, for more information about each age group please check out our Divisions page.  This program is played during the Fall season and starts in Sept., and games are played on Saturdays. 

The program is a small sided games program.  These are soccer games with fewer players competing on a smaller sized field.  These are fun games that involve the players more because fewer players are sharing one ball.  For more information about small sided games please check out our Handouts and Coaching pages.

The Intertown program is designed to give the older recreational player an opportunity to continue to play soccer.  With the cooperation of other local towns within Dutchess County, players get the chance to play teams outside the Dover program, without the competition of our Travel program.
