DDYSC will be holding ID Clinics & Tryouts for the Fall 2019 - Spring 2019 soccer season:
- 2012 8U & 2013 7U Pre-Academy ID Clinics

- 2006 14U - 2001 19U Select Tryouts

Attending all tryout nights is essential for proper team placements as it allows multiple coaches to evaluate each participant. All tryout participants MUST attend tryouts on the designated time/date per their birth year, there are no fees for trying out.
All players trying out MUST pre-register for Tryouts & ID Clinics. Pre-registration will be closed at 11:59 PM May 20th for Pre-Academy ID Clinics, 11:59 PM May 27th for Academy (9U - 13U tryouts), and at 11:59 PM June 3rd for Select (14U - 19U) tryouts.
If you do not pre-register online before tryouts, you must fill out the paper registration form at the fields on the night of tryouts (this slows down the check-in process). If you do not pre-register for tryouts, please arrive 30 minutes before your age group starts in order to finalize registration.
Check your confirmation email for schedules and important tryout details.
NOTE: Roster selections will be made within 72 hours of the last tryout. Coaches will email and/or call to notify you of your child's placement. Please make sure the phone number listed on the forms is your primary contact number, and the email listed is your primary email.
