Frequently Asked Questions

Each player is assigned to the appropriate bracket based on their age as of July 31st of the current season. The "U" stands for "under", so U6 means "players under 6" which would be 4 and 5 year old players. Following that pattern, U8 means "under 8" which would be the 6 and 7 year old players.
 
For example, if your child is 9 years old and has a birthday of September 8th, they would be in U10 age bracket.


When is the last date to cancel and get my money back?

Unfortunately, we will be unable to refund your money after March 1st, 2018.


Can I request to be on the same team as my neighbor's kids so we can carpool?
 
Unfortunately, the answer is "No" due to the rules of the SAY Organization we are a member of, as well as the logistics of organizing 1600 children on approximately 120 teams. If you would like your children to be on the same team as another child, consider teaming up with their parent to coach a team as children will be placed on the team their parent is coaching.
Our club is a member of the SAY Organization and we MUST abide by their rules which state that all players are to be placed randomly on teams to help ensure fairness of play.  For complete details, please refer to the SAY Organizational Rules, Rules 8.3 and 8.4 which address the assignment of players to teams.
 
Rule 8.3.K allows for some exceptions
The following players, who would otherwise be subject to the draw, may be exempt from the draw.
 
(1) The child or children of the head coach of the team.
(2) The child or children of one assistant coach of the team – provided such assistant coach was assigned to the team prior to the draw.
 
Exception: If a child of an assistant coach or a former assistant coach from the prior season(s) is already on the team prior to the draw, then no child of an additional assistant coach is exempt from the draw.  
 
(3) Any otherwise eligible younger brother or sister of any player who is:
    (a) already playing on the team or
    (b) assigned by random draw to play on the team.
 


How will I get notified if the game is cancelled?

DPRYS games are RARELY cancelled, as weather can change quickly and games are spread across a wide area, including De Pere, Ledgeview and Wrightstown.  U14 and older games are across the Green Bay area.  It is advised that you plan to show up to each game unless you feel that it is unsafe to go.  There are several methods you can use to check on game cancellations.  However, we normally only post or a send an e-mail cancellation due to poor field conditions.  Here are the options for notification of cancelled games:

How much can I expect my child to play during the game?
DPRYS is a member of the Soccer Association for Youth (SAY).  The SAY philosophy is that every player plays at least one half of every game, with leagues forming balanced teams and divisions.

What is the cost to play?
U12 (age 11) and under:
$50 per child - online registration by February 15, 2018
$50 per child - mail in form, due by January 17, 2018
$65 per child - late registration (Online only. If your child’s age group is full, they will be placed on a waiting list; you will be contacted if/when an opening becomes available.)

$60 per child - mail in form, due by January 17, 2018
$75 per child - late registration (Online only. If your child’s age group is full, they will be placed on a waiting list; you will be contacted if/when an opening becomes available.)

What equipment does my child need to play?
Shin guards are required in order to play. Soccer cleats are recommend, but regular gym shoes can be used. (Baseball cleats can not be used. Baseball cleats have a spike on the toe, where soccer cleats will not.) A uniform t-shirt or jersey shirt will be handed out by coaches at practice.

Can jewelry or a cast be worn?
Due to the potential of injury, no jewelry, even newly pierced ears, can be worn. Also, with the exception of an "air cast", no splint or cast can be used during play. For full details on what is allowed or not allowed during play, see the SAY Playing Laws, LAW IV - Player's Equipment.

When will I find out my game and practice schedule?
2018 game schedules will be posted online by the end of April. An email will be sent to the email address in the player's registration record when the schedules are posted. Practice schedules should be communicated by the coach by the first week of May. If you have not heard from your coach and are unable to reach them at the phone number listed on the schedule, you may follow up with the board@dprys.org. Rosters will be emailed to parents at the end of April and will not be posted publicly online.

What paperwork do I need to turn in before my child plays?
See full list under Players > Virtual Player Packet.

If this is the first year playing with DPRYS, you also will need to provide age verification. This can be done by showing an official document with your child's age, such as a birth certificate, to a board member at new parent orientation; mailing a copy (no originals please), to DPRYS, or emailing a photo/scanned copy to registrar@dprys.org.

What if my child is injured in practice or a game?
Included in your registration fee is secondary medical insurance coverage for injuries your child may experience at DPRYS sponsored events. This insurance is provided by Soccer Association for Youth (SAY), our national affiliate. To file a claim a parent must report the incident to DPRYS within 90 days of the incident. Contact DPRYS at board@dprys.org.
