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 DUSL Recreational Kit
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.

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.
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.

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.
