Parents / Athletes,

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the Jonathan Dayton Girls’ Soccer Program.  We currently have full Varsity and Junior Varsity Teams.  Our main goal for every season is for both levels of the program to be competitive in every game that we play. In order to accomplish this goal, we need dedicated players who will be expected to exhibit a student-athlete mentality.  First and foremost, we want our players to excel in the classroom.  After school, our players need to show that same work ethic on the soccer field in order to ensure a successful season.

The following links will provide you with information on every aspect of the program.  Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.  Thank you for your interest in the Jonathan Dayton Girls’ Soccer Program.
