The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.

DSP Districts

For the purposes of the DSP, the state is divided into seven Districts. Click the link below to find which district your town is in:
 
In the event a team in a player's age group and gender is not formed in the player's DSP District, the player may elect to play in the appropriate age group and gender in a neighboring DSP District.  

Tryouts and Tryouts Registration (Required to be placed on a team)
Each DSP District conducts formal tryouts to select players for each of their teams. Each District is responsible for scheduling their own tryouts. All Tryouts will be held the last week in April through the first week in May (weather permitting an extension may be applied). Players selected to play DSP will be notified by early June.
 
**All Players are required to be available to play in the season ending tournament taking place on August 3rd and 4th.**

Cost
The total cost for participation in DSP is $195.00 for players registered with Massachusetts Youth Soccer. This includes the $150 program registration fee and the $45 uniform cost (see below).

Uniforms
In addition each player is required to purchase a uniform kit (shirt, shorts, and socks). The cost of the uniform is $45.00 plus shipping and handling. Please note players will be responsible for purchasing their own uniform kit and will not be allowed to play until they have their uniform.  If a player is selected for a team, he or she will be sent a link for an online payment form for the participation fee.  Instructions will also be provided for ordering uniforms from our  partner Soccer.com.  Financial Aid is available for those who demonstrate a compelling need.

Payment
Once a player has selected for a DSP team, he or she must formally make their DSP Payment on-line for the Program. This is a different process and in addition to the process of registering for DSP Tryouts. Please register players immediately after receiving the confirmation notice from the coach. All registrations must be completed and submitted once notification has been received in order for uniform ordering to start.
