DUSC is very clear on the focus of long term player development through the system as part of the 'DUSC Way'. We don't sacrifice player development for trophies, which requires patience and a healthy attitude for the long term. We believe if players have the 3 A's (Attitude, Attendance, Ability) success will be a by product of this down the road and we have seen this come to fruition as players and teams get older.
The club has continued to make improvements and push the bar to compete at the highest level, with all of the top boys teams now competing in the 1st Division of the Elite Development League (EDP) spanning top competition in the northeast region of NY, NJ, CT.
In addition, DUSC enters all academy teams U13 and above into the NY State Cup competition to measure against the highest competition in the state. The tournament begins in the fall season with 3 group stage games, with the top two teams from each bracket moving onto to the knockout stage during the spring season.
This past weekend, DUSC saw the following teams make it through to the next rounds of competition. Congratulations to all teams and best of luck in the next round!
