Tryout Registration & Attendance


All interested new and returning players MUST pre-register online.


Returning Players from DDYSC Select, Academy or Pre-Academy teams from last fall/spring:

            - Must pre-register online for returning player commitment  

            - Will not attend tryouts

            - Will be offered roster spots on their rising teams for next season


Academy team levels will be determined during pre-season camp and will be subject to adjustments during the season.


New Players from other clubs or from rec soccer:

            - Must pre-register online for DDYSC tryouts

            - Will choose between in person on field tryouts or virtual tryouts

            - Players choosing in person tryouts are only to attend one tryout date


There will not be in person tryout registration available at the field due Covid-19 protocol, so be sure to pre-register online.


Players attending on field in person tryouts will need to bring their own ball and water and must wear shin guards.


All on field tryouts will follow guidelines set forth by the YMCA and GA Soccer, as the health and safety of everyone is top priority.

Players not registered for tryouts or for returning player commitment will not be considered for roster spots, so be sure to pre-register right away.

Team Acceptance


Returning players need to pre-register for their returning player commitment online by May 25 as their acceptance to return next season.


New players will be contacted within 72 hours of tryouts with invitations.  Players must accept their roster spot within 72 hours of invitation to ensure place on team.


Acceptance of a roster spot will hold that spot for the player, but the roster spot is not guaranteed until club registration for the season is completed.

Fall 2020/Spring 2021 Season Registration


Once players accept their roster spot, they are asked to complete club registration for the fall 2020/spring 2021 season as soon as possible.  Players who do not register prior to June 10 will be charged a $50 late fee.


Returning players who complete club registration prior to May 26 will receive a $100 discount on their full fall ‘20/spring ‘21 registration fees.


Payment plans are available, as well as financial assistance and scholarships to qualifying players.
