big... Big... BIG Changes - US Soccer Player Development Initiatives

image_name2
Parents and players are beginning to hear about the US Soccer Player Development Initiatives. Some of the elements that have received more visibility include the change in field dimensions as well as birth year registration.
 
The DCG Soccer Club has prepared a brief overview of the 2016 Fall Season Changes, please take a moment to review.

The DCG Soccer Club implemented the new field dimensions (see the Standards Chart) with the Spring 2016 season. The 2016 Field Layout depicts the field changes. The DCG Soccer Club is implementing the new Birth Year Registration (see the Birth Year Matrix) with the Fall 2016 Season.

To learn more about the player development initiatives please visit the US Soccer Player Development Initiatives page and view the informative video. The video does a good job explaining the rationale behind the various elements of the initiative.

Field Painting Volunteers Needed

image_name2

We are looking for volunteers to help paint the fields throughout the season. Our club takes great pride in the soccer complex and this is a great opportunity to help contribute. We are asking for a time commitment of about 1.5 hours once during the 8-week soccer season. We usually paint fields after work on Thursdays or Fridays each week after the city has completed mowing and before the weekend games.

No previous experience necessary - the Director of Fields (David Kurth) usually paints the fields each week with the volunteer.

If you are interested, please contact the Director of Fields (fields@dcgsoccer.com) directly by email. We are offering again this season a free DCG soccer painting T-shirt for those who volunteer.
