We implemented a new, easier online registration for Spring 2019 using TeamSnap. All 9U - 19U travel players (birth years 2000 - 2010) can now sign-up using the same, simple registration form.



Reminder: Due to US Soccer mandated changes, age groups are now based on birth-year.


About Spring 2019 Travel Soccer Registration

Dover Travel Soccer currently serves the city of Dover and surrounding communities. The program is designed for motivated players in the 9U-19U age range (2000-2010 birth years) and provides an outlet for players to play with and against those of similar motivation and ability in a fun and competitive environment. Please see details below by age division for specific information about practices, games, playoffs, fees, and more.



9U-10U Travel Soccer (2009-2010 birth years)

Our 9U-10U Travel Soccer teams practice twice each week for 90 minutes, play eight league games, and participate in an end-of-season soccer jamboree. There are no playoffs in this age division. The Spring season begins in April and ends in June, although practices may begin indoors up to a month earlier in March.

The cost for 9U-10U Travel Soccer players is $130 (a $25 portion of the registration fee is a non-refundable deposit to offset administrative, registration, league, and transaction fees). Uniforms are purchased separately and are not included in the cost of registration fees. Player evaluations are required at this age. Team placements, uniform ordering instructions, and practice schedules will be made in the weeks following player evaluations.

11U-15U Travel Soccer (2004-2008 birth years)

The Spring season begins in April and ends in June, although practices may begin indoors up to a month earlier in March.

The cost for 11U-15U Travel Soccer players is $180 (a $25 portion of the registration fee is a non-refundable deposit to offset administrative, registration, league, and transaction fees).

16U-19U Travel Soccer (2000-2003 birth years)

Dover Soccer is pleased to once again offer Spring soccer for high school aged players. This Spring program provides continued player development and competition for those playing on a Fall team while also being cost effective and flexible for those playing multiple sports. This is accomplished through competitive regional game play, without the pressure of committing to practice days at a considerably reduced player fee. Players who have the new DSA Adidas "hoop" style uniforms should plan to wear those to game days. Otherwise, Dover Soccer will issue players a jersey to be returned at the end of the season. Please understand, these are DSA-owned jerseys, so a small refundable deposit is required. No evaluation is required for this 16U-19U high school age division.

Required Evaluations for Team Placement

All U9-U15 players wishing to compete in the DSA travel league who did not play for DSA Travel Soccer during the Fall 2018 season must complete a placement evaluation process to determine players’ current skill level, motivation and abilities. Note: Evaluations are NOT required for 16U-19U players. Evaluations will be held:

Saturday, January 19, 2019
Seacoast United York Sports Center
1050 US Rt 1, York ME

More details will be provided via email and on Facebook as the date approaches. You must complete the US Club Soccer form provided during registration and turn it in at the player evalution!

Contact info@doversoccer.org with any questions.




Training Player Option

Dover Soccer understands not all players may be ready to play at the competitive travel level. With that in mind, we have created the role of a “Training Player” to help develop players. Training players will be identified during travel evaluations, will practice with their team twice a week, and may have the ability to play in games once the coach determines developmental wise the player is ready. Training players pay (1/2) half the travel fee for that age group, and will be issued a uniform jersey to be returned at the end of the season.



About Dover Travel Soccer

The DSA Travel program currently serves the City of Dover and surrounding communities. DSA Travel Soccer is designed for appropriately motivated players, ages U9-U19 and in the Fall and Spring seasons. Travel teams are registered to play with Northern New England Soccer League (NNESL) affiliated with US Club Soccer and/or New Hampshire Soccer League (NHSL). State affiliation is through the New Hampshire Soccer Association.

NHSL league games are played on Saturday and Sundays (played either home or away). Spring Season starts mid-April and finishes mid-June. Fall Season starts mid-August and may run through early November. If your child is 11U+ and their team progresses in to the NNESL end of season playoffs, the season could be extended 1-2 weeks. DSA travel soccer also may include multi-game tournaments on Memorial Day weekend and/or Columbus Day weekend and may include a multi-game jamboree at the beginning of the season.

A player's team age range is determined as birth-year, as set forth by US Soccer.See the age chart.
