To apply for club membership with Delaware Youth Soccer you must have at least 4 teams. Please follow these steps:

- Submit a copy of your club's by-laws and playing rules. If your club does not have any, DYSA state rules will take effect
These items should be submitted to the Executive Director at firstname.lastname@example.org
Contingent upon approval by the DYSA Board of Directors, your club, association or facility will be accepted as a provisional member of DYSA and maintain all rights and responsibilities of full members except the right to cast votes at the Annual General Meeting. Once your club, association or facility is approved by the Board of Directors, you will be contacted with additional information. During this period, the Rules Committee/BOD will review the documents submitted to ensure they comply with the rules and procedures of DYSA and contact your organization to assist with correction of any discrepancies. Final acceptance and extension will occur at the next Annual General Meeting. All full and provisional members of DYSA are responsible for remittance of annual affiliation fee.
Upon their discretion, the Delaware Youth Soccer Association Board of Directors reserves the right to withhold approval of any club application they believe are not in the best interest of DYSA's players or existing members.
