DGR Soccer

About Us

                   

DGR Soccer is a recreational soccer program for children between 4-17 years of age.

Started in 1984 at Monroe Park in Dunmore, DGR Soccer has developed into one of the premiere recreational soccer programs in Northeastern Pennsylvania.  DGR Soccer is a SAY (Soccer Association for Youth) Soccer recreational program designed to provide any child the opportunity to play recreational soccer.  We provide a fall soccer league that also does year round training at either our home field located at Sherwood Park or at Riverfront Sports Complex for indoor training.  Children between the ages of 4-17 are eligible to play.

We have DGR subdivided into 3 groups.  First we have the Sixers, next we have DGR and finally there is Dunmore United.
Sixers:
The Sixers program is the beginner stage of DGR Soccer.  It is divided by age into U5 and U6.
  • 5U is strictly a training program to get the children familiar with soccer.  They will be focusing on dribbling, ball control, passing and shooting.
  • 6U is the first time that the children are separated into teams.  They will be doing training and matches all on the same day.
DGR:
DGR is the in-house program that we use for our U8 and U10 divisions.  Both of these divisions are Co-ed and play weekly matches. 
  • 8U has at least one practice and plays one match each week.  All of the matches will take place at Sherwood Park's U8/U10 Field.  Each match consists of 4 quarters of 10 minutes.  There is a 1 minute break between quarters 1 & 2 and 3 & 4.  There is a 5 minute halftime between quarters 2 & 3.  All regular season matches will end at full time (end of the 4th quarter).  During playoffs, we will follow FIFA rules for overtime, which will consist of 2 - 5 minute halves.  If still tied, we will then go to a 5 v. 5 shoot out followed by 1 v. 1 until there is a winner.
  • 10U has at least two practices and plays one match each week.  All of the matches will take place at Sherwood Park's U8/U10 Field.  Each match consists of 4 quarters of 12 minutes.  There is a 1 minute break between quarters 1 & 2 and 3 & 4.  There is a 6 minute halftime between quarters 2 & 3.  All regular season matches will end at full time (end of the 4th quarter).  During playoffs, we will follow FIFA rules for overtime, which will consist of 2 - 6 minute halves.  If still tied, we will then go to a 5 v. 5 shoot out followed by 1 v. 1 until there is a winner.
