ATTENTION Douglas High School students playing high school soccer this next school year:
There is a mandatory meeting next Monday, June 29th at 6:30pm in the Douglas High School library. Parents are also requested to attend.
They will be fitting for uniforms on this day so that they can get them ordered. If you would like a specific number you will need to attend this meeting!
Fees for playing this high school season will be approximately $75. This fee will include paying for your uniform which will be yours.

The scheduled games are mostly local but there are also games scheduled in Hot Springs, Belle Fourche, Sioux Falls and the possibility of Aberdeen. They wish to discuss with parents about those that are willing to drive which may include other players and feelings on being reimbursed or not for that travel.
