    Durango Youth Soccer Association, in partnership with Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, introduces the G.O.A.L. program to encourage players to give back to their community with off-field volunteer efforts in community service. Over the years several teams have stepped up to assist with volunteer projects that they found both rewarding and a teambuilding opportunity. DYSA as an organization is committed to G.O.A.L. program because it helps our members understand that they can make a difference. Community service and volunteerism are an investment in our community and the people who live in it. It brings people together, provides physical and mental rewards, strengthens your community, and promotes personal growth.

    DYSA with the assistance of Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory is planning to host these volunteer team initiatives:

    • TOPSoccer -  a one day event for adults and children with disabilities. Participants will spend the afternoon with Fort Lewis College and DYSA athletes participating is a variety of soccer-related activities. Program was developed by US Youth Soccer Association.
    • Uniform/Gear Drive

    • Recycling - plastic recycling program at Shootout and Escalante
    • Suggest a cause - teams or individuals can suggest a volunteer activity that benefits the community
