DHD Soccer

A heartfelt thanks

After 16 years I am sad to inform you that the DHD Summer Soccer program will not be returning in 2017. Through the years DHD had changed from having a set curriculum to one that changed from week to week to meet the skill level and interests of the players at the different ages.  I am taking on a new career path which will take me out of New England for long periods from time to time.

Over the years I have had the opportunity to share my passion for the game with hundreds of players and parents.  Those players that were there to learn and improve their game were a pleasure to work with.  Likewise I had been blessed to watch players grow from gangly youths in competent teens.  There were some players that were talented before they came to DHD, yet they kept coming back because it was fun.  What was a real treat was to see friendships be formed by new acquaintances and kept over the years.

I owe a great deal of thanks and gratitude to the coaches that helped out over the years.  Several of them started out as players, but due to their talent level and maturity I recruited them to help out with the program.  It was equally fun watching them grow as coaches and into adults, as well as learning from them.

Finally I would like to thank my family for their encouragement and help throughout the years.  For all the times I didn’t mow the lawn or missed family gatherings because I had DHD.  Without their support I would not have been able to keep going all these years.
