        Clarification of Skill Levels

        DFSC offers several levels of soccer commitment.  These are summarized below to help fill out your registration (not available for all age divisions).

        Recreational - Includes all U4 and U6 teams and goes through at least U12.  Main focus is on fun while learning the sport.  Players DO NOT attend Skill Evaluations, and all teams play in our internal DFSC league.  An attempt is made to play everyone equally.  Fall season runs September through December, and Winter season January through March.

        Desert Elite Developmental - For players willing to make a more significant commitment as early as U7.  There are typically be 2 practices per week, and all teams play in a Valley-Wide League with usually 2 or more weekends dedicated to tournaments. There are additional fees for uniforms, training and tournaments.  Game season starts in August and runs through February/March.

        Desert Elite Competitive - Our highest level of play for players U10 through U18, with all teams playing in a State-Wide League.  Includes multiple practices per week, additional fees for uniforms, coaching, training and tournaments.  Playing time is dependent on coach.  Typically 5 or more weekends dedicated to tournaments.  Game season could run into March/April.  Out-of-State travel is likely for our most advanced teams.
