IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON ACADEMY SCHEDULE - DETAILED INFO FOR PARENTS:

VENUE INFO:

Avondale Dunaire Park is now our main Pre-Academy and Academy game venue for DDYSC Wolves.

During the Fall 2019 - Spring 2020 season we will continue our partnership with the Carl E. Sanders YMCA that will help to grow the YMCA's impact in our immediate communities and all areas in between! With this partnership in place, we will continue to utilize the fields at Windsor Parkway (980 Windsor Parkway) for DDYSC games. This collaboration will allow both organizations to collectively schedule and work with clubs of larger sizes which will increase the quality of both programs.

PRE-ACADEMY & ACADEMY SCHEDULE TIMING:

You can review Fall 2019 season game days on our club wide calendar on our website. Specific venue and kick off times will be posted on our website by mid- August 2019.

ACADEMY MATCHUPS:

We do our best to create matches with comparable teams from opposing clubs. Many times we are dependent on the opposing club’s ranking of their team(s) to determine which DDYSC Team they should play. In certain instances, some of our Academy teams may be matched up to an older age bracket's lower level team or a younger age bracket's higher level team due to the number of teams at the opposing club. In some instances due to the opposing club not having any match up for our teams we've opted for an intra-club game.

If there is a blank (or no match up for your team) on a specific game day that means we are still working to schedule for a match up for your team.

CSD FALL BREAK (September 23-27, 2019):

DDYSC Academy teams will train during the CSD Fall Break.

TEAMSNAP AVAILABILITY and KICK OFF TIMES ON TEAMSNAP:

Our website - www.ddysoccer.org - will always have the most up-to-date game times and venue details.

In addition to that, teams utilize Team Snap to inform their parents/players about game day details. All parents should mark their availability for ALL games on their team's Team Snap. This is the only way your Coach can ensure available players for upcoming games and create a roster in a timely manner. Please note - we will NOT cancel a game because a team did not confirm their available players in advance.

If you see a discrepancy between the website and Team Snap details, please discuss this with your Coach/Team Manager as soon as possible.

KICK OFF TIMES VS. ARRIVAL TIME TO GAMES (HOME and AWAY):

Pre-game preparations and warm up is an essential part of the game day routine. Most Coaches will request their teams to arrive 30-45 minutes prior to kick off.

Being late to games disrupts the warm-up and unfortunately does not set a good tone for the game. Please do your best to get your players to the game on time. It is their responsibility as a member of the team to do so but they can only do this with your assistance.

REMINDER ON DUAL DUTY COACHES:

Please note that we have many Coaches who are assigned to multiple teams this season. While we make every effort to schedule games in a manner to ensure they are able to Coach both of

their teams, sometimes it's simply not possible to avoid Coaching conflicts. For that reason we ask for your patience if your Coach is a few minutes late. We will assign another Coach to cover a game if your head Coach is not going to be available.

DDYSC is always looking for educated, licensed and dedicated Coaches to join our Coaching staff. If you know someone who may be interested, please have them contact, coach Turkish at Turkish@ddysoccer.org.
