Hello Dedham Soccer Community!

We are T minus 1 week from the first games of the Spring Season!!

Shaky start to the season with the rain and the field conditions- please make sure you are checking your email for notifications from Coaches, FB, and our website for field updates.

Despite this, Dedham Youth Soccer volunteers are getting excited and amped up for the start of the season. Lining fields, putting together goals, inflating balls, a coaches meeting or two- everyone is working hard to help make our soccer program great this spring season. 

Read on to find out what's going on and sign up for opportunities to help us get the season off to a great start!
