The Tryout Process & Evaluation

  • You must pre Register online for our tryouts.
  • Tryouts are held over a two day period for each age group. Each tryout session will last approximately 1.5hrs. Players are encouraged to attend both days if possible to allow our independent evaluators and coaching staff the opportunity to assess their skills. The more opportunities the evaluators have to see you child, the better their evaluation will be and subsequently the easier it will be to place your child on the correct team. 
  • The assessment will be on technical ability, small group and game-situation performance.
  • When all evaluation completed we will have a better idea on how many teams we will have in each age grps. The age grps and roster sizes may vary.  If we have enough kids to make two teams in one age group then we will make an "A" team and a "B" team, if we have enough for a "C" team then we will do that. 
  • Age Groups: 
  • 6V6 U9 and U10 Boys and Girls Maximum roster is 12 minimum is 8 
  • 8V8 U11 and U12 Boys and Girls Maximum roster is 14 Minimum is 10
  • 11V11 U13 and up Maximum roster is 22 minimum is 13

Notification - Did my child make a team?

  • At the end of each tryout week, the evaluation team (independent evaluators and coaches) will meet to review the player’s evaluations and create the teams for next year. Together, the group will work to form the teams. The focus will be on the developmental needs of each player & team, and will place players in the appropriate level of play, MOSSL or BPL
  • Offers to participate on a team may be made immediately, (i.e. the day of tryouts), following any tryout.
  • A member league, coach, and / or club may offer a position on a team to ANY of its currentlyregistered players 7 days prior to the start of the tryout period for that age group 

  • You will be officially notified VIA email if your son or daughter has made a team.  A time period to except this position will be limited.  

Team Meetings

After offers are extended and accepted, there is much work that needs to be completed over the summer to ensure the players can start the season in August. Uniforms must ordered online, paperwork and fees collected, meet the coaching staff and so much more! The team meetings are designed to share information with parents about the upcoming season, allow the players to meet their teammates and to collect paperwork necessary to prepare for the team’s participation in competitive leagues. 

Fundraising Opportunity

DSSC has a wonderful way to offset your child's playing fee's.  All parents have the opportunity to work shifts at the Mingo Park concession stands.  Every worker is paid per shift, kids are permitted to help but are not paid unless they are 18 and over.   The Concession stand is set up to help out with the fee's and has been very successful the past two years.   If you are interested in picking up shifts to off set you fee's please contact Lisa Dudley at liskedud@gmail.com
