For those players whose regular season team is not participating the
Danvers Soccer Saluting Soldiers Festival (DSSSF)
Unlike the DYS annual Memorial Day Invitational Tournament held each May, the Festival will be open to U-08 and U-10 teams ONLY! It will take place on one site on Veterans Day weekend, and tournament entries will be strictly limited to 50 teams. Also unlike our May event, this is NOT a fundraiser for Danvers Youth Soccer. Net proceeds will be donated to OPERATION TROOP SUPPORT, which provides comfort, and support to our active duty troops in Afghanistan, to our wounded troops at 6 military hospitals across the world, and to their families here at home. Please visit Troop Support USA for more information.
You are registering your child because they are interested in playing on a team in his or her age group in the DSSSF. Please double check with player's regular season coach as to whether or not he/she has registered a team into the tournament before registering as an individual player. There is no fee to register a player. Families will pay out tournament fees once placed onto a team and cost will vary depending upon the number of players. The cost averages out to between $25-$35 per player. Team coaches will coordinate tournament fee payment with players' families.
