Spring House League!

Our program is open to all Western New York families from Buffalo and all its surrounding communities! If you are new, you must create an account for you and your family before registering. Once you've added yourself and your players onto the account, you will be able to register for any program that they are old enough to register for.  

The House program is a great way to introduce or increase your child's interest in soccer! The primary focus is to develop the players' passion for athletic competition through skill development in an inclusive, fun, and positive environment!

Program Summary and Structure: 

  • Open to all children born 2007-2018 - all skill levels welcome!
  • Players practice once per week and play games against each other every Saturday. Players in the U3 program (born 2018) have just one session during the week.
  • The program runs 8 weeks, with practices BEGINNING the week of May 3 and ENDING June 26th.
  • All practices and games are at Point of the Meadow in Delaware Park.
  • Players also receive their own soccer ball, jersey, and socks!

Different from year's past, players are not assigned a specific team prior to the start. Age groups will arrive together and DSC Staff will split players up at the field. As the weeks move on, players of similar skill will be grouped together to help maximize skill development.

Every weeknight, DSC Staff, with some help from volunteer parents, will run the groups through age-appropriate drills and games, while focusing on soccer fundamentals, positive reinforcement and fun! Saturday games offer more competition, with the focus on maximizing ball touches and fair play. 

Meet our DSC Coaching Staff Here!

Players receive 16 soccer sessions over 8 weeks, a jersey, soccer socks and a new soccer ball!
