Fall Fundraiser Was A Success!

Thank you to all who came and donated to our fall fundraiser banquet! We thank our minor and major sponsors for all the ways that you contributed to our silent and live auction on September 18th! With the funds that were raised, our club does not have to do any other fundraising this winter, so it was a huge success! Thank you again for all who donated in the many different capacities that evening! Our club would not be what it is without your volunteering and financial support! 

If you are interested in making a donation to the club still, you can do so  at anytime online through: Paypal ( or number: 320-241-9914) or Venmo (search @dlysa under the business tab and mention donation in the notes section before sending the money)

Our First Fall Mighty Strikers Was a Hit!

Our first ever Fall Mighty Strikers was a huge success that we hope to continue for years to come! We ended the 4-week season with another first for the soccer association, Youth Soccer Night  held on September 14th before the Boys Varsity game against Bemidji! The youth players got in free to the game with their mighty strikers tshirt or DLYSA jersey and got to high five the players and stand for the National Anthem on the sidelines with the players before the game began! Thank you to all who came out and made our first ever Youth Soccer Night a success! We loved seeing our club's oldest players and families connect with our club's youngest players and their parents on this evening!


Thank you to all of our players who came out on Mondays and Wednesdays with Coach Andrew and Coach Shea for our Fall 4-5-6 program! We had a record number of kids come out for our short fall training sessions, just over 40. We look forward to doing it again next year!
