    Welcome to the Detroit Lakes Youth Soccer Association

     Our Mission is to promote and foster, in our members, a basic knowledge of soccer by creating a fun, fair and safe environment. We emphasize a competitive spirit focusing on skill-development, respect, self-confidence, leadership, sportsmanship and teamwork.

    DIBS PROGRAM IS LIVE!

    Hello DLYSA families,

    Our volunteer program, DIBS, is now live on our website. Please read the attached letter that was sent in our recent email explaining what DIBS is, how it's used, and why the program is so vital for our soccer association. Our club would not be what it is without the help of the many hands involved in volunteering to help keep things running. We thank you for all the ways our families continue to serve the players and community at large through this soccer program! 

    DIBS items will continue to be added, especially as we look to fall high school soccer season, but our most immediate volunteer needs are up. We need volunteers especially for our upcoming 3v3 tournament on June 5th, concessions, restrooms, groundskeeping, the Rotary Cup tournament on July 9-10, and our fall banquet in September. 

    Please consider how you can use your gifts and talents to serve the club this year, and if you see a need that is not already on our DIBS program, please do not hesitate to let us know so that we can continue to grow our club and serve our players and families better. Thank you!

    -DLYSA Board
