DELCO Soccer Spring League 2017

 The DELCO Soccer League (DSL) will begin accepting registrations for the 2017 Spring season starting January 9, 2017  DSL's Spring Season kicks off with games on March 19th (weather permitting) and runs through May 14 with teams competing in 3-7 games held on Sunday afternoons.

What is DSSL? 

It's a great way to build a strong, competitive plan for your team's spring schedule. With Sunday afternoon only games and more flexible scheduling, DSL provides U9 - U17 teams a good complement to tournaments and State Cup competitions.  As well with other sports competing with players' time, the Sunday afternoons allow for dual-sport athletes to continue to compete as the weather warms and tryouts begin.

Drive time to play opposing teams will carefully be looked at to ensure good competition whilst also minimizing drive times for away teams.

 Spring Season Registration, Season & Scheduling Tips

1.       To register online January 9th through 2/1 for Spring Season now, Login, under my dashboard click team registration

2.       Much like the Fall League, there will be several levels of competition in each age group (number of registering teams-dependent) with most age groups containing Divisions 1 through 4, each with approximately 5-10 teams of similar ability.  Use the below as guidance when registering your team. The team's last two Fall seasons' results and any information you provide during the registration process or sent in with payment such as tournament results or other background information  will be used to properly place a team in the appropriate division.

DSL's Division 1 will contain top teams typically Fall League's Division 1&2 and top-         finishing Division 3 teams.
DSL's Division 2 will contain Fall Division's D2 - D4 teams.
DSLs Division 3 will consist of Fall D4-D6 teams.
DSL's Division 4 will contain D6-D8 or teams.

3.  Schedules will have a certain amount of flexibility as the Spring League Commissioner will work around team conflicts that are submitted during the registration application. Please ensure any tournaments or known conflicts on game dates (see below) are recorded into the Delco website along with registration information. Also all teams are to work with each other to ensure any conflicts are resolved and games played. This game scheduling process involves the following

Initial schedules released 2/20. Any games not changed with league approval thru the           online game change page on this schedule will be played as scheduled
Team Preseason Rescheduling requests need to be done online -  2/14-2/26.
Game-changes can be requested by the home team's club delegate each week of the             season. They must be submitted online per league game change policy no later than            Wednesday the week a game is played. These changes are only for issues that arise              after the final schedules are posted  

4. For a team to have a bye weekend(s) for a tournament or any other special scheduling consideration, the team must log into the Delco website and go here http://www.delcosoccer.org/registration/teamRegistrationNotes.aspx  to log these requests by Feb 1st.

5.  Teams are permitted to have up to three "club pass" for each league game, but unlike the fall season these players can come from any team within the club that plays in the DELCO Soccer League (as long as the players are age appropriate/eligible for the team that they are guest playing with). For more information on Delco's Club Pass Policy click here http://www.delcosoccer.org/publicDocuments/clubPassPolicy.pdf

6.   DSL Spring Season does not have a roster freeze date, so roster changes can be made up to the Wednesday each week. All roster requests must be made to the league registrar by 9 PM the Wednesday prior to the game in order for them to be able to play that weekend.  

7.  Game reports will be collected online within 24 hrs of the game time per league rules, standings will not be kept and playoffs will not be held at the end of the season nor trophies awarded.

8. All age groups will have the same style of play as offered in the Fall season. U9 and 10 – 7v7; U11 and U12 9v9 only.  U13 - U17 are 11v11 only 

9. Fields and goals standards for the Spring are the same as the Fall. Please see here for the League’s standards
