FALL 2020 SOCCER CANCELED

Dorchester Soccer Families:

After several lengthy discussions, consultations with other Boston area soccer clubs, and listening to the Massachusetts Youth Soccer Association protocols and guidelines for returning to soccer safely, the Board of Directors has decided to CANCEL the Fall House and Travel seasons.  We do not feel that we can adequately abide by the rules AND provide safe soccer for our players and families.  Feel free to browse the MYSA website to check out the new rules:  https://www.mayouthsoccer.org/return-to-soccer-activities/

We will be in touch If at some point in the future we feel that we can safely offer some soccer clinics.

In the meantime, please stay safe.
