REFUND POLICY

In the past, we have not had a documented policy for refunding registration fees when players withdraw from the program. We have researched refund policies of other area towns and developed a policy that is in line with these other towns. Below is the new refund policy.

Once a player is registered, the Club only provides refunds for the following reasons:

  • The family moves out of Dover or Sherborn
  • The player has a long-term injury
  • The player has a long-term illness
  • The player or players family is concerned about risks associated with Covid-19
  • If you withdraw by the dates below

Please note that refunds are not "automatic". If you fit the above criteria, please contact the Club Registrar.
Withdrawal dates:

Registration Age 3- Grade 1

Fall - Before September - 100% registration fee less $10- After this date - no refund unless in exceptional circumstances (i.e., season cancellation). Parents need to notify registrar.

Registration Grade 2 (in town only)

Fall- Before September 100% registration less $10- After this date - no refund unless in exceptional circumstances. Parents need to notify registrar.

Registration Grades 3-8

For BAYS teams, there is NO refund with unless the player fits one of the exception criteria listed above - this is because the Club incurs costs to MYS and BAYS months before the season starts on a per player basis. Parents need to notify registrar to receive any refund

Grassroots Soccer 3v3 Tournament a Success!

soccer

A fun afternoon of soccer was had by the participants of the 3v3 Tournament to benefit Grassroots Soccer. The event included the youngest of ball boys and sideline cheers from the Pre-K-2 DS Soccer Sunday Soccer program right up to players from grades 3-12. The match ups were epic and while challenging included some light-hearted competition.

What was most impressive were the varsity captains acting as referees, but also additional players on teams that needed a leg up on their competition. It felt like the best of our soccer community coming together for a great cause! Congratulations to all who ran it and participated! Watch for it to return next year!!

 

 

Why Town Soccer?

We asked some former Dover-Sherborn Soccer Club Players, "What did playing town soccer mean to you?"

Cerys Balmer “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

 

 

 

Riley Correll  "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

 

Sam Dawley  "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

 

 

Adam Fam  "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
