Over a span of 51 years DUSL has relied on the generous volunteer time that our members have given to our recreational program. A program designed to introduce kids to the game of soccer, allow for new friendships, and allow kids a venue for physical health.
We have relied on our members to to fill coaching positions so that we have enough resources for our players, to create soccer teams. With the rapid growth of the Dublin community, this year we find ourselves in need of additional coaches, and this is where we need your support. If you were an assistant coach, team manager, team volunteer or even a parent that loves to be around kids....DUSL NEEDS YOU!
You do not need experience, or a coaching background, and you do not need to be athletic. All you need to volunteer is time. We will help you with everything else.
We need you to take a coaching position so we do not have to disband teams. We will help you with training, resources, support and instruction. All you have to do is accept the coaching position and let us help you to provide a successful year for a group of Dublin kids.
If you can help, PLEASE reach out to Tyrone Tuell at DirectorRecreation@dublinsoccer.org or text him at 925- 570-0000
Please pardon the dust......as we upgrade our email systems. Over the course of last week and going forward for the next two weeks, DUSL will be working on the email system that we currently use.

Contact information can be found on the "Contact Us" tab at the top off our home page.
Please bare with us as we improve our systems, and we thank you for your support..

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:
Submit pictures to email@example.com by July 6th 2019 to be considered. Winners will receive prizes so don't delay, send us these pictures right away.
Former DUSL players took part in a beach soccer tournament at Santa Cruz this month. Alumni including Yusef Hamidi, Josh Mendoza, Tony Castillo, Cole Heinbaugh and others played in the annual Snata Cruz Beach Soccer tournament and they still make our retro jerseys look good!
Wow...What an exciting time for DUSL.
GROWTH. We just finished a historically large player placement process for 2019, and had the largest turnout in DUSL history. Returning DUSL players, new players transitioning from recreation to competitive, players coming to DUSL from other clubs (Tri Valley, Rage, Ballistic, San Ramon, West Coast, Mustang), and players new to the community all came to player placements. This is a great indicator of the growth in the city of Dublin, and its impact to the long term success of DUSL.
COACHES. To ensure we provide a quality product for our competitive players, DUSL has hired a staff of over 20 coaches with a wide variety of coaching experience. We have some tenured coaches, former collegiate players coaching, veteran coaches returning to DUSL, nationally licensed coaches, High School coaches, College coaches and some new coaches. This means our players will receive some of the most diverse and specialized coaching from the DUSL staff.
RECREATION. Around the corner is our Recreational registration. We have already started programs to ensure the recreational leagues have all the resources needed to ensure a fun filled 2019 recreational season. Recreational coaches have already attended coaches meetings, had the option for pre paid officials licensing and training. We have created a team selection committee, to get a jump start on team selections for 2019. The next recreational coaches meeting is less than 2 weeks away.
SPACE. Did I mention our office? For the first time in our 51 years of existence, DUSL will have an official office for team meetings, coaches meetings, board meetings, and DUSL events. The location is under remodel but will soon be accessible to our membership. Stay tuned for more details on this exciting event for DUSL.
Volunteers. Next week we will open the DIBS program located on this website, for members to fulfill their volunteer hours by helping us with our fireworks booth. We will have many 3 and 6 hour shifts that you can use to get your volunteer deposit back. Please take a look next week and volunteer for a shift or two. Remember once the shifts are filled, we will close this opportunity.
We hope you are excited as we are about the positive changes going on at DUSL. We look forward to seeing all of you and your families on the soccer pitch soon
All the Best
