Decorah United Soccer Club (DUSC) is an organization committed to promoting youth soccer in Decorah, Iowa. 
DUSC is organized and directed by a board of dedicated volunteers. We are a traveling recreational soccer club for youth in the Decorah area. We are members of the Northeast Iowa Soccer League and we offer two seasons of recreational play. Our eight week U9-U14 spring season includes six games, a tournament, and practices two nights/week. Spring teams are coached by Luther College soccer players under the direction of the Luther College professional coaching staff. Our six week U9-U14 fall season includes six games, an optional tournament, and practice one night/week. Fall teams are coached by parent volunteers. All practices are held in Decorah and games are played in Decorah as well as West Union, Waverly, New Hampton, Denver, Sumner, Mason City & Clear Lake. We also offer local programming for U7-U8 players in both the spring and fall.

We invite players of all abilities to participate. There are no try-outs and every player gets equal playing time. Players are expected to attend all practices and games. All players, parents, and coaches are required to sign a Code of Conduct and are expected to conduct themselves in a positive manner at all times, both on and off the field.

US Soccer Mandates beginning fall 2016:
The US Youth Soccer Association has established several new mandates effective August 1, 2016. One of these mandates is a change in the registration age brackets. The new age brackets are based on the player's birth YEAR rather than birth month. This is consistent with the other 208 FIFA countries that register youth players by their year of birth. Players born between January 1 and December 31 in any given year will be registered in the same age bracket, regardless of their grade in school or birth month. 

Jimmy was born in 2006 - he is registered as a U11 player
Susie was born in 2007 - she is registered as a U10 player
