DDSC Used Equipment and Uniform Coordinator Jessica Giannettino has put together a gear swap page. This is a community shared project hosted by one of our player's family. Please see if there's any gear that you can use and donate old soccer gear so that our players in our community can continue to use it!
The only way that this functions is if folks utilizing the swap contribute to the upkeep of the tracking document, found here. To pick up/donate gear, find the item(s) you'd like, email Jess at email@example.com to arrange pickup/drop off at her house in Cherry Park. Once picked up, please remove the item(s) you got from the swap, by deleting the entire row. To do so, right click on the number associated with that row and then delete. For Donations: Please add the items you're donating to the spreadsheet under the correct tab and size range (found at the bottom of the screen) and drop off at her house.
We're in particular need of size 1 cleats and can always use jerseys' your little players have outgrown! Contact Jess at firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions.
Board Meetings - all welcome. Meetings are on the 1st Monday of each month, 8pm.
Need to order uniforms? You can now order your uniforms at the DDSC store! The uniforms will get delivered to your player's coach.
