sign-ups and a full team of 18 players.

● The league will work with each team individually to determine the best solution.

Indoor 2nd Half Registration Open Now!

Please note game times will be Monday nights with games starting at 8pm &  9pm and if we have 6 teams, also 10pm.

Direct link to registration  – https://shotonnet.leagueapps.com/leagues/soccer-(indoor)/924733-201819—indoor-winter-2nd-half

HOW IT WORKS:
For those of you not familiar with our indoor league, we play at Carruther’s Creek which is a smaller field then the standard indoor facility and we play 4 on 4 (plus a goalie.)   The smaller field size and amount of players both on the field and team makes it very conductive to a fast paced game that’s fun for players of all ages and skill levels.   Unlike outdoor, we pick and balance all the teams ourselves, and encourage and actively attempt to get everyone playing with different players.   You may link to one other player, however note that both players must specify the link.

The league is run in two half’s.   The second session starts  Monday, Feb 4th and will run until the last Monday in April.

For the 2nd half winter session we create all new teams and restart standings from scratch, so even if you didn’t play in the 1st half it’s a new league season

REGISTRATION
Registration is $150 

Be aware, that although it is not called out specifically in the registration fee, it includes a $40 service and admin fee which goes towards our DRSA fees, insurance etc.    If for any reason during the season you request a refund, it’s at the league discretion if one will be provided, however the $40 service fee is no-refundable.

Hope to see you out there!

2018/2019 Indoor Registration now open!

As per usual we have a limited amount of spots.  We will run 4 or 6 teams depending on demand, please note game times will be Monday nights with games starting at 8pm &  9pm and if we get 6 teams, also 10pm.

The league is run in two halfs.   The fall session will start Oct 15th and run until Jan 14th, the second session starts the following Monday, Jan 21st and will run until the last Monday in April.

For the 2nd half winter session we create all new teams and restart standings from scratch, so you are essentially getting 2 seasons over the course of the indoor season

REGISTRATION
Registration is $240 if you sign up by Sept 20th, after which is rises to $275.    We have also tweaked the payment plan option this year.   You can pay in 2 installments, the first is due by the end of September, which is $160 and pays for the first session until Jan 14th.   The second payment of $130 covers the 2nd session.    Note that by paying the entire fee upfront is cheaper, especially if you take advantage of the early bird special.   Getting players registered for the whole season makes it easier for us to manage, however we recognize that not all players can commit that far out, so we wanted to provide this option which most other indoor leagues do not do.   If you decide not to play in the 2nd half if you make partial payments, just let us know and we will cancel your 2nd half payment.

Be aware, that although it is not called out specifically in the registration fee, it includes a $40 service and admin fee which goes towards our DRSA fees, insurance etc.    If for any reason during the season you request a refund, it’s at the league discretion if one will be provided, however the $40 service fee is no-refundable.

Hope to see you out there!

Annual General Meeting (AGM) – Tuesday, March 13th – 7pm

I want to announce that our Annual General Meeting (AGM) will be held on Tues, Mar 13th, 7pm at the Ajax Community Centre in the Admiral Room.    This meeting is your opportunity to help shape the future direction of the league as we will be electing some new board members, updating the league participants on the financial status of the league and explaining how our registration fees are spent, and discussing future elements of the league.

If you have an issues or suggestions with the league, or want to become a member of the board, or even volunteer in some capacity.  We are particularly in need of volunteers that have some experience with marketing or web development to help us out.   Even if you don’t have experience but are interesting in working with us, we would be glad to have your help!   If you have any questions about the AGM, or want to help us out with the league, please email me.

Durham Adult Recreational Soccer League Registration now OPEN!

Good afternoon. we are pleased to announce the opening of registration for the 2017 summer session!  

This year we are offering 3 different ways you can register for the league.

TEAMS
For the first time, we are offering the option for teams to register as a complete entity.   In order to register a team, first the captain registers using the TEAM CAPTAIN registration option.  During his registration he will create a team, then the players who are planning on playing on this team register using TEAM PLAYER option.    If you register before your captain does, then you can register as a FREE AGENT and be assigned to the team afterwards

 

SMALL GROUP
Another new option is the ability to register as a SMALL GROUP MEMBER.   Use this option if you have a group of friends that want to play together (3 or more) but not enough to create a full team.   When you register as a SMALL GROUP MEMBER, you are given the option of creating a new Small Group, or join an existing one.   Just coordinate with your friends to define the name of your SMALL GROUP.   

INDIVIDUAL
Finally, as always, you can still register individually by selecting the FREE AGENT option.   During the FREE AGENT registration you can select another player or friend you wish to play together with.

The league is expecting to run on Monday and Friday nights in Whitby and Ajax as we have in the past with Monday’s games likely all being 9pm, and Friday’s 8pm.   We hope to have 2 divisions, but this will depend on the amount of players and teams that sign up, and the divisions are likely going to be split based on competitive balance.   No matter what division you start with, we reserve the right to balance the divisions as we deem necessary in order to maintain a healthy level of competition.

We are also pleased to be able to offer reduced pricing this year based on streamlining some of our features and to encourage growth this year.

Early bird price, which is available until March 19th is just $200 per player!   After March 19th, the cost goes up to $230, so we encourage you to take advantage of this rates.

Sign-Up here now:
http://shotonnet.leagueapps.com/leagues/soccer/281385-2017-summer-season

For teams, since we are accepting payment from individuals only, and the fee is based on teams of 18 players, then the expectation is that you sign 18 players.   If you don’t have 18 players, you have the option of either
a) Accepting players you league assigns to your team, or
b) Pay a team fee which would be the difference between your individual sign-ups and a full team of 18 players.  

The league will work with each team individually to determine the best solution.

Besides opening up registration, the other big announcement we are making at this time is we are rebranding the league.   For here on in, the league will be known as Durham Adult Soccer League (DASL) or “DAS” as we have started to refer to it.   We have a new website at DASLeague.com which has just opened but look for new features to be added on a continuous basis leading up to the new season.   One of our main objectives this season is to work with the referee’s and teams to try to get scores and standings updated more efficiently and improve our communication via our website and other social channels with the league members.    

If you have questions or comments about the league, there is a contact form up on the new website already at DASLeague.com/contact

So to summarize, registration is OPEN, registration fees are DOWN and a new DASLeague.com website is UP.   Lots more information and news in the coming weeks.   Please share this information with your friends and anyone you know of who might be interested in putting a team, a small group or signing up as individual.
