General Information

The DSC Competitive Recreation Program is an alternative for players and parents who are interested in a higher level of commitment than traditional recreation soccer. This is for the experienced recreation player aged 8-14 . We provide our volunteer coaches with coaching clinics, licensing, and assistance on the field from DSC Staff Coaches. Our program consists of team practices  1x per week, open pool practice with a DSC Coach 1x week, games plus a season ending Championship tournament. This program is run by Discoveries and is not connected to the City of Rock Hill.  Seasonal evaluations are used to roster players to a team. We strive to create balanced teams for competitive play. Please keep in mind that we are a volunteer-driven organization.

Seasons: the program runs fall and spring.  The fall season begins in September and ends in November, the spring season begins in February and ends in April.

There will be 1-2 practices per week. If you have not heard from your coach within one week before the season’s first practice please contact us. Once placed on a team, players may not switch to another for any reason.

The number of games will depend on the number of teams per age group in the league.  Games may be during the week or on Saturday or Sunday.
