Hello DYS Families,
I hope that everyone is staying safe in this crazy time. I want to thank everyone for participating in DYS this Fall. The board has worked countless hours to make this fall season happen for the players. Our goals are to get the kids out playing soccer, having fun, and socializing in as safe a way as possible. As we are progressing into week 4 of Fall Soccer, I want to make sure that everyone is staying vigilant, following all Safety Protocols as outlined at the start of the season to include but not limited to:
THANK YOU to all the volunteer coaches for making sure all protocols are followed and for your dedication to the team. There are a lot of happy parents and players (under those masks)!
This is the second year for SafeSport- DYS is required by Federal law to have all coaches and asst coaches take a 1 hour online Safe Sport course. This is not only a law for ALL sports organizations, it is in the best interest of the children that our coaches take this course. If anyone has questions about this subject, please do not hesitate to reach out to me directly. It is all about the safety of the players.
DYS Yearly Annual General Meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, December 1st @ 7:30PM. As of now, location is Endicott Estate (if in person) or virtual if needed.

Hello DYS families,
We are about to start the fall season (you should hear from your travel coaches this week and town coaches at the end of next week).
DYS is taking the health and safety of our players and families very seriously. See below Guidelines for your review. These have been approved by the Dedham Board of Health.
Dedham Youth Soccer (DYS)- Soccer Health Guidelines
DYS will be following the Massachusetts Youth Soccer Association (MYSA) “Return to Soccer Guidelines-effective 8/17/2020” Below are some highlights but full guidance for ALL players regardless of age can be found at the link here: https://www.mayouthsoccer.org/assets/61/6/return_to_soccer_activities_phase_3_step_1_-_august_151.pdf
The following procedures should remain in place for all participants, coaches, and spectators:
Rule/Play Modifications to Comply with the Guidance:
PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT AND FACIAL COVERINGS FOR ALL SPORTS
While limiting proximity of participants is the first line of defense to reduce the risk of transmission Facility Operators and Activity Organizers must require facial coverings to be worn by all participants except:
Otherwise, Activity Organizers must require facial coverings to be worn while engaged in an activity wherever possible. Some sports by their nature involve intense aerobic activity throughout play. For these sports it is required that players use facial coverings when possible, take frequent breaks when they are out of proximity to other players using caution to avoid touching the front or inside of the face covering by using the ear loops to remove and replace. For example: soccer players should have facial coverings (that have earloops) with them at all times and where possible play with the facial covering on, removing it for long runs down the field, for plays without close contact, and in the goal. Participants for all sports must wear facial coverings while on the sidelines at ALL times and in any huddles or time-outs.
Any questions, please contact:
