ALL GRADE 3-8 PLAYERS MUST BE REGISTERED BY MAY 20 TO ATTEND TRYOUTS. There are no evaluation tryout sessions for rising Grade 3/current Grade 2 players; these younger players are evaluated by coaches and the Club across the spring season to help us form the best teams in the fall.

BAYS is launching the RESPECT Campaign this spring. We ask that all in the BAYS community join together to help us make the youth soccer experience the best it can be for all of our players, coaches, referees, clubs, parents, and fans. The philosophy of BAYS is to provide an atmosphere of good sportsmanship to encourage all to compete, learn, and enjoy the game of soccer. Unfortunately, BAYS is seeing more incidents of racially-charged, offensive, hurtful, and inappropriate language/actions than in the past. It has been observed that there is an increase in the overall level of hostility and disrespect during some BAYS games in recent seasons. This is concerning.
It is the hope that by emphasizing RESPECT, we can improve the game environment by removing disrespectful and discriminatory language, boost the FUN quotient for the kids and all involved, and return to playing “The Beautiful Game."
Here is the link to the entire REPECT Campaign on the BAYS website. In order for this campaign to be successful everyone needs to actively be involved. On the BAYS website we have outlined the RESPECT Campaign asks for:
- Parents / Guardians
The reading of the RESPECT statement prior to all BAYS games should assist in helping set the stage for each match. Thank you in advance for spreading the RESPECT Campaign message and expectations.
BAYS RESPECT Statement:
BAYS expects the highest standards of sportsmanship from each of you.Players, coaches, parents, fans, and officials should be positive and respectful. Discrimination, criticism, or hurtful comments or actions of any kind have no place here. Enjoy the game, have fun, and show respect for each other.

We asked some former Dover-Sherborn Soccer Club Players, "What did playing town soccer mean to you?"
“Although club soccer has taught me skills and techniques, town soccer has taught me passion and brought me friendships that will last forever.”
Cerys Balmer, Commit to play for Holy Cross, Class of 2024
"To me, Dover Sherborn Soccer was much more than just an after-school sport. It was where I learned to be a good teammate. Playing on the same team as my friends from school gave me an amazing foundation to continue as an athlete when I graduated from DSHS. Although I didn't play competitive soccer after 8th grade, that foundation helped me find success in other sports."
Riley Correll, Skidmore College Swim Team, Class of 2023
"The best part about town soccer is the ability for everybody to play, no background required. You get to compete with people who you never would have met otherwise. Dover Sherborn Soccer gave me a love of team sports and a start on leading a healthy life."
Sam Dawley, avid Triathlete, Johns Hopkins Class of 2023
"Two of the key ingredients to be a successful soccer player are teammate camaraderie and competition. The DS soccer club fosters both and was a springboard for me honing my skills in club and high school soccer."
Adam Fam, Commit to play soccer at Colgate University, Class of 2024
