Welcome to the DSC Spring House League page.
The 2017 House League seasons starts during the week of April 24, and ends with the Soccer Festival on Saturday June 24.
This year we added an extra week to the season, so all our teams will now have two training sessions before the first game The 2017 Spring season is therefore nine weeks long this year.
Our Spring House League program is open to boys and girls born from 2003 through 2014.
Players in the U4 through U14 divisions have one weeknight practice plus a game on Saturday. Our Junior Park Rangers, a U3 program with kids born in 2014, have one soccer session per week.
Teams in the DSC House League program play against each other in an 8 game rotating schedule over the course of the season.
Players receive a DSC uniform (jersey, shorts and socks) and a ball.
The DSC House League program is, like all our programs, open to all Western New York families. You do not have to live in the City of Buffalo to join our club.

During the registration process you have the opportunity to tell us which practice day work best for your schedule. These requests are not guaranteed.
You may also make a coach or friend request during online registration. These requests are not guaranteed either. Emailed and verbal requests to DSC staff will not be honored. When asking to play with another child, we need the child's full name and are unable to look them up from past seasons. Also, coaches may no longer be available in your child's age division.
Interested in Coaching?
All our House League coaches are volunteers. Mostly moms and dads, who love the game, want to be involved and give back to the kids, club and sport. Some of our coaches have extensive soccer experience, while others could be new to the game. If you are interested in being a House League coach, you can indicate that during the registration process of your child.
Coaches are expected to run the weekly training session and coach all games.
DSC provides the coaches with a curriculum and age specific lesson plans to support all coaches. We also provide a lot of information on our website. House Coach's Info
Before the season starts, on April 22 from 9am -12/noon, we will also host a House League coaches meeting/clinic at the Nardin Indoor Soccer Facility. During this meeting/clinic we will inform the coaches about all procedures, but also go on the field and run through some training sessions.
Head coaches receive a $50 discount on their child’s registration fee. During online registration, click on the volunteer box and we will contact you to confirm your placement as a coach before the season starts. Coaches will receive the discount at the end of the season, after they fulfilled their commitment.
