Darien Soccer League (DSL)

Play soccer year round at the Darien Park District! Learn soccer from profession trainers!


Come join the only option for a quality recreational soccer program in Darien! The Darien Park District and Chicago Empire FC have put together a tremendous, year round, recreational youth soccer program that your child will love. By signing up with us your child will receive one training session and one small sided game each week. We believe that by decreasing the numbers on the field each player’s ball control, balance, agility, and decision making skills will improve along with the quality of the experience.

All teams will require a parent volunteer coach who will need to be present at all trainings and games. Practices will be run by Chicago Empire coaches who will guide volunteer coaches towards learning the techniques needed to develop their coaching skills.

Any questions, please contact Siera at spxoffice@darienparks.com or call 630-789-6666.
