Recreational Soccer

So what is “recreational” soccer? - Recreational soccer is, typically, an intraclub league that provides its participants the opportunity to learn the game of soccer, get exercise, gain new life skills and, most importantly, have fun.  We are proud to provide a recreational program which offers a fun, safe, and rich soccer experience for our youth in Dripping Springs and the surrounding areas.  DSYSA Soccer is a volunteer run organization that relies on, mainly, parents/adults to continue leading and improving the program.

We offer teams for players U4 through U18. Recreational soccer focuses on recreation and fun, as well as skill development. Guidelines for recreational soccer include:

  • Skill evaluations are held in order to form teams in a fair and balanced method.
  • All players who register are assigned to a team as long as space is available on team rosters.
  • Players are placed in a Division based on their Birth Year
  • All players will play 50% of the game
  • Players benefit from the opportunity for social interaction with other players their own age and the physical fitness aspects of the game while also developing better soccer skills.
  • Teams practice only one time per week during the season.
  • All games are played at our fields except for U13+ where half the games are at the opponent's fields.

After teams have been formed, LogIn to see Team pages under the Recreational>Divisions tab.
