About DSA

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.

Our Season: 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. 

Our expenses: 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.
