Dracut Soccer is a non-profit organization made up exclusively of volunteers.
We have no full time staff. With over 650 children playing in the Spring and Fall, we are
one of the largest independent sports organization in the town. Everyone
who has a child playing in Dracut Soccer is considered a member. We are run by a
Board of Directors
who meet once a month,
usually on the last Tuesday of the month.
We are a member of
Massachusetts Youth Soccer Association
Essex County Youth Soccer Association
As such, we are required to adhere to statewide standards. Among the rules and regulations with which we must comply are age requirements, referee requirements and playing
rules. The Board also adheres to by-laws
What we do:
The organization handles registration and team placement for over 600 children in the Spring
and Fall seasons. We usually have over 50 teams. Coaches come from the parents of our players.
DSA funds coaching clinics to help prepare them for their role as a soccer coach.
The soccer season usually runs about 8 games in the spring and fall.
The weather and field readiness and availability play a big part in our starting date.
We also try to time the end to coincide with the end of the school year. To get all of the games in we do
play in inclement weather. You'll see us on the field in light rain (never a thunder storm)
and even during the occasional snowfall.
DSA pays for referees, equipment, coaching clinics, insurance and affiliation
fees for those players registered. We also fund such mundane items as public toilets and field irrigation systems.
