Dynamo/Dash League




South Texas Youth Soccer and the Houston Dynamo / Dash have partnered to present the STYSA Dynamo / Dash League.  This new league will offer playing opportunities for competitive teams in the Houston and the surrounding areas of the Eastern District, and will serve as the qualifying league for entry into other STYSA competitions.  Beginning in Fall 2015, the league will exclusively host all the Eastern District Super II and Division I levels of play.  This includes boys and girls teams from the U11 through U19 age groups.  STYSA will manage all operations of the league including but not limited to, rules of play, registration, scheduling and field usage, disciplinary actions, and referee assignments.  The Dynamo/Dash League will be under the direction of the STYSA Eastern District Vice-President, the operations of which will be handled out of the South Texas state office.

FALL 2016 - Implementation of the calendar year registration
South Texas Youth Soccer and the Dynamo/Dash League are implementing the Calendar Year registration model beginning Fall 2016.  In short, in order to implement this change without forcing the break-up of teams, each DDL team will be aged up an extra year (i.e. if your team played U13 in spring 2016, your team will play U15 in fall 2016).  For more information about the implementation of the calendar year registration model, core requirements, and other information, please see the DDL FAQ's.
