Frequently Asked Questions
When is the Soccer Season?
- Soccer has two league seasons with optional league play in the winter. The beginning of the soccer year is in the fall (August 1st) with the year ending at the end of the school year (June 1st). Most program registrations are session by session. Our club teams all run on a full soccer year basis which is a 10 month season as a full-year registration.
Do You Offer Financial Assistance?
- The Downtown Las Vegas Soccer Club is Nevada’s premier local soccer club. We work hard to ensure that all children that wish to play soccer are given an opportunity to play regardless of their family’s financial circumstances.
- Each year, the club provides need-based grants to players that would not be able to play without financial assistance. Annual grants range in amount depending on available resources. Grant amounts are awarded based on demonstrated financial need.
- Any player interested in obtaining financial assistance must complete a grant application form.
- Families that wish to ensure that all children are able to participate in DLVSC’s programming may make tax-deductible contributions to our grant program by contacting Gary Soresman.

How do I Register?
What methods of Payment do you accept?
- We accept all major credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express), checks and money orders (no cash please).
Do Girls and Boys play on the Same Team?
At the youngest ages, some of our teams are mixed but all 11 v 11 teams are gender specific
Can my player return to the same team?
- Early registration is the best way to get on any specific team, as placements are handled by order of registration. So if you want to guarantee that you return to the same team, please register early in the registration period.
- Players who register late are not guaranteed to return to their team. If you register after the deadline, it is VERY possible that you will lose your spot to a new player. Players who take a season off are not guaranteed their spot back.
- DLVSC is a competitive soccer club. As with any competitive club in the world, we believe players competing for roster spots will motivate individual players to work hard, self-train and commit fully to their coaches instruction in order to earn a roster spot on the team.
