- Best of Luck to our travel teams both home and away as they push to do their best and play hard each week.
- There are bathrooms set up at Gonzalez, Condon, Rustcraft field on Saturdays, however POOL Field does not have one, we are to use the actual pool bathroom if it is open, so plan accordingly
Town and Travel Referees: I Have heard GREAT feedback from parents and coaches. Keep up the great work and have FUN!
REMINDER: A note about Fields this season: In Dedham, there are limited open spaces to play (especially with lights during fall season) and DYS must share space with other sports, other DYS teams, etc. DYS will have multiple teams practicing at the same time on various fields. Please be courteous and know that the Dedham Parks and Rec Department is doing a great job and has been working hard to do their best to make our season a success. Fields this season might not have ideal conditions due to the drought, so please be patient and let DYS know if you have any questions, concerns, etc… We appreciate the flexibility in last minute changes due to field usage, conditions, etc…
Do you have any positive suggestions, would you like to volunteer to help? Just send me an email…
On behalf of the DYS Board…Thank you for all your support!!
DYS on 3…!
