The Dorchester Soccer Club is a non-profit youth soccer organization serving the Dorchester and surrounding area. The organization is proudly administered solely by dedicated volunteers from our community.
We field competitive teams from U8 to U18 in a variety of competitive leagues in Southwestern Ontario. We are passionate about our sport and player development on and off the field. Our regular season games, annual festivals and tournaments are played on pitches located in Dorchester.
The Government of Ontario announced that it has paused its current color Public Health Framework and announced a Province-Wide Shutdown for multiple sectors of the economy. These new restrictions are greater than the previous Government of Ontario Framework and the Province has made specific changes to the rules for outdoor recreational facilities and team sports.
As a result, Ontario Soccer (OSA) is required to suspend all in-person soccer activities ‘for at least four weeks’ in order to comply with government orders. See OSA Covid-19 Update Bulletins here.
Dorchester Soccer Club will continue to take direction from OSA and follow the Return to Play process. With our completed Competitive Registration, we have submitted our prospective teams to our local soccer district.
Any future team soccer activities will be contingent on progressing to ORANGE, YELLOW OR GREEN levels of the provincial framework. We will continue to update our members when we have new information and hope to have more clarity as the end of this shutdown nears. Thanks for your continued patience.
Competitive Registration has now closed. Please contact us for any late registration inquiries as there may be some spots available.

We would like to stress that with the Covid 19 situation, the 2021 Outdoor Season will likely be a fluid one, subject to change, depending on such things as the speed of the vaccination program, population infection rates, and the restrictions imposed under the various stages we find ourselves in, (Red, Orange, Green etc). These factors will have a significant impact on our plans for this season, but the restrictions imposed will be beyond our control. It is obvious to us that the decisions we make, may not please some of our members. However they will be made for what the Board feels are in the best interests of our league. Our league is prepared to adapt quickly, as it becomes necessary to do so. We will then update our membership quickly, so members can expect to be receiving notifications throughout the season. (As per EMSA - Elgin Middlesex Soccer Association - which will in turn affect our season).
Please consider this before registering.
