Seatbelt Saturday and Sunday (9/30 & 10/1)


Fasten your Seatbelts! 

Seatbelt Saturday is an effort to create a better game environment for youth soccer, to enhance player development, and increase game enjoyment for all. It also helps players take more control of their own game by helping to promote communication between the players themselves. 

What do we want COACHES to do:

  • Sit and watch the game! Actually sit on the bench or a chair.
  • Refrain from shouting tactical instructions, directions, reminders, suggestions or criticisms to the players on the field.
  • Support the referees by not making negative comments or gestures.
  • Use the opportunity to coach and engage with the substitutes who are watching the game with you on the team sidelines. This is a great time for them to learn more about the game from you.
  • Encourage your players to communicate with their teammates throughout the game.
  • Please Note: It is not the referee’s role to enforce that teams participate in this Seatbelt initiative. 

What do we want PARENTS and SPECTATORS to do:

  • During the run of play, just sit down and watch your children play their soccer game.
  • Limit vocal comments to positive general statements of player and team support without mentioning any player names.
  • Make no negative comments about anything that happens during the game. 
  • Revel in the kids playing a game they enjoy!

What do we want PLAYERS to do:

  • Communicate with your teammates!
  • Take back control of your game.
  • Make decisions about your game without interference from coaches or spectators.

DS Varsity Soccer Clinic Draws a Crowd!

There is nothing better than getting the soccer community together to share in the experience of helping one another improve their skills! Led by the DS Varsity Soccer Girls and Boys teams, the DS Soccer Club players were invited to participate in an afternoon clinic- a good time was had by all! 








What makes our club awesome? All the opportunities for younger players to watch, engage and be invited into the circle of Varsity athletes. Every season, BAYS teams are invited to be ball kids at the home games. It is a much anticipated invitation and for good reason-standing on the turf feels like the big time! Thanks to DS High School coaches for this ongoing partnership!

Grassroots Soccer 3v3 Tournament a Success!


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!!
