FAQ

If I participate in training, does my child automatically get placed on a travel team?
No.  You can participate in training without being on a travel team.

Can I be on a travel team without training?
DUSC requires that you have participated in our training program with the last year to travel.

What is the difference between training and footskills?
Training gives the player a complete understanding of the game, both from team and technical aspects, learning to work together. Footskills is more of a one-on-one development between the player and the ball.
