December 2022 Newsletter

Hello DYS Parents,

 

Thank You

I wanted to thank all the board members, volunteers, coaches, and everyone who have worked hard to make Dedham Youth Soccer a great organization for the players, families, and town of Dedham in 2022.  I know that we all have many other activities, meetings, practices, and our own work/family balance.  Thank you for bringing your passion, your intellect, your experiences, your respect, your resources to help Dedham Youth Soccer. 

I want to especially thank those that have helped over the last few years and are moving on from the board.  Dylan, Suzanne, Chris L., Burke:  Thank you on behalf of DYS for your contributions, hours of coaching, advising, and overall enthusiasm of making DYS what it is today!! You were passionate and always worked to put the players of Dedham first.  Although, your work is never done and you may be called in as a sub here and there 😊

I also want to welcome Jeff C., Aubrey D., and Danielle L. to the board.  Looking forward to having your help in 2023 and beyond!

  • Please note deadlines are fast approaching and spots are NOT guaranteed and subject to availability and late fees.
