3rd Grade (U9)

3rd grade is the first year of 'travel' soccer. DS Soccer teams practice once-per-week and play league matches against teams from other towns once-per-week, practices are arranged by volunteer coaches to work with their schedules and they will work with the teams' parents to find a time that works best for as many players as possible. 

Teams are formed to allow the players to develop optimally with and against players of similar ability. The teams are formed using coach evaluation sheets from previous seasons and input from the DOC, Charlotte Phillips. 

Players, coaches and families are encouraged to understand the Club Identity and coaches are encouraged to use the support of the 3rd grade Curriculum.  


All practices and some home games will be held at Laurel Farms, Sherborn. Away matches are played at nearby towns in Metrowest. Practices may also be run at Chickering School, Dover.


Spring season runs from early April to mid June. Fall runs from early September to mid November


Games will be on a Saturday, with times to be finalized once the towns confirm field availability.  Though there can be exceptions, the normal game times are listed here
