US Soccer Player Development Initiatives

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 is implementing the new field dimensions (see the 2017 Standards Chart) with the Spring 2016 season. The 2016 Field Layout is available.

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.

Watch this space for additional information about DCG Soccer Club's adoption of these required changes and their implementation timing.
