    In our continuing effort to provide more technically advanced processes for all DUSL players, we have decided to transition our recreational schedules to a more detailed and automated system. 

    We have worked relentlessly to move all schedules to the GotSoccer platform. This will now give all coaches, the ability to see updated schedules, match details, and rankings. This is the same platform that manages all Norcal teams, and DUSL currently uses this platform for all competitive and Select teams.

    In the first time in DUSL history, we will now have all players in DUSL, regardless of playing level, using the same process and platform for matches, schedules and rankings.

    It will take us a couple weeks to get all the details finalized, but it is a huge step forward for our recreational program.

    2019 Recreational Uniforms Are Here

    In our continued effort to improve and modernize the DUSL uniform process, we have converted all recreational uniforms to a High 5 kit. We ordered over 700 uniforms this year using an automated process, and a new vendor and retailer.

    The uniform sizes are ordered based on what parents request when they register their player. 

    Uniforms are now in. If you are a recreational team manager, all uniforms for your team may be picked up at Soccer Pro. Here are some helpful guidelines to assist you in the process.

    • Team managers or Coaches can now pick up all the uniforms for the their entire recreational team at Soccer Pro. Parents CAN NOT pick up uniforms individually at Soccer Pro
    • The uniform bags that Soccer Pro will issue to each team manager, has not only the uniforms, but also a roster attached to it. The roster ( See Attached Roster Picture) will assign each player on that team, a specific number and detail the size that is to be given to that specific player. The sizes issued are the sizes requested by parents when they registered their player.  For example; Player John Smith #12, Medium bottoms, medium tops, medium socks. Uniforms must be distributed exactly as outlined on the roster that comes with the uniforms. 
    • Uniforms numbers are not selectable. DUSL has issued numbers for every player. Do not allow players to grab uniforms based on numbers or sizes.
    • No names are on the uniforms. There are thousands of names, and spelling these names correctly would be a huge undertaking filled with potential errors. For this reason DUSL does NOT put last names on uniforms. If a team wishes to add names, it must be done for every player on the team, and at the parents personal expense. We do not want some of the players to have names on uniforms and some players to not have names on uniforms. We don't want any player feeling left out. Our recommendation is that you do NOT have names placed on uniforms.

    Coaches Training - Concussion Protocol

    DUSL hosted a training seminar last night for coaches that are interested in improving their knowledge and effectiveness as coaches. 

    Last night we trained over 40 coaches on recognizing concussions, and concussion protocol. World renowned neurologists Dr Carl Abraham was on site at the DUSL office to lead the training and discussion. Thank you to all the coaches that attended and participated in this training.

     


    2019 Q3 GM Message

    Finally, we are back from our spring break and so many exciting things are happening. 

    This week after 51 years, DUSL has opened its first ever club office. This office will be used for team meetings, coaches trainings, board meetings, referee trainings, club meetings and many other events. The club has worked extremely hard to locate an office that was highly affordable, located in an area that is accessible for all members, and can be used for multi purposes. Thank you to our friend, former State Assemblyman Guy Houston for helping us locate this site. Also many thanks to local members for donating their time and trade skills to help renovate the office. 

    Competitive and Select teams are back practicing. Twenty coaches are rostered to work with this years select and competitive teams. Its exciting to see the blend of new and tenured coaches working with our players. Lets Go DUSL!

    We have joined into a partnership with "Girls Soccer Worldwide" an organization dedicated to the leadership development of female soccer players. Be on the lookout for articles and events from this terrific organization and its potential for female DUSL players. 

    Our DUSL Shamrock Tournament is only 3 weeks away. It's one of the final opportunities for families to fill their volunteer hours for 2019. Please hit the volunteer tab, and use the "DIBS" program to lock in your volunteer time during this soccer tournament. We have over 110 teams coming to Dublin to play soccer, and we need as many volunteers as we can get, to run an effective tournament. SIGN UP NOW!

    Coaches training. DUSL is committed to the training and development of our coaches. For the past several weeks, and going forward, DUSL is running coaching clinics for all recreational and competitive coaches. Our directors and General Manager will be training the coaches on many concepts and ideas to run highly effective training sessions with players. We hope that exposing our coaches to different ideas and philosophies, will help  the coaches change training sessions into more effective and impactful sessions. 

    We are looking for referees. There is a lot of money to be made, suntans to capture, and fun to be had. All you have to do is take a referee class, and sign up to referee a couple games. Thats it...We pay you for your time, you get out in the sun and exercise, and our kids get to have matches with referees. Stay tuned to our website for the next available class coming soon. 

    65 teams and over 700 players were placed on recreational  teams, and practices begin next week for our recreational league. DUSL would like to thank the 2019 Selection committee, comprised of Board members, coaches, directors, and team moms for their countless hours put into the team selection process. Great Job Team!

    It's an exciting year for DUSL and we hope each family gets out to watch some matches and enjoy the beautiful game played by terrific kids.

    All the best

    The month of June is our cooling off period for all DUSL players. We urge families to take a break, take family vacations and spend the start of summer relaxing before the teams come together in July, to begin competitive and recreational soccer play. 

    We realize that most families take vacations, mini vacations, weekend getaways or just extended trips during this period of the year, and we want to be included...

    Introducing the 2019 "Where in the World is DUSL"  contest. As you take your vacations we would love to see where you are, and what you're doing. To participate all you have to do is:

    • Take a selfie with any DUSL gear on.
    • Try to include an image that symbolize's where you are. If you're at Yosemite put trees in the background, Las Vegas? show the hotels. Cabo? Let's see some sand. Paris? Eiffel Tower would be nice. Bakersfield? How about the Buck Owens Crystal Palace?
    • It doesn't matter where you go. It can be around the Bay Area, in California, in other states, or in other countries. We just want to see our DUSL gear worn with pride at your destination location.
