The DCAA is a non-profit, volunteer run organization responsible for funding and operating all Dansville School’s youth sports K thru 6th grade (and a few sports for 7th & 8th grade). Money to run the organization comes from participation fees, donations and fundraisers. We are very fortunate to have the support of Dansville Schools and the Village of Dansville. They allow us to use the indoor and outdoor facilities, as well as help with the distribution of information.
The DCAA has a Board of Directors that set policies, do major fundraising, distribute money from the general fund and appoint commissioners. If you have general questions about the program and what is available, you should contact a Board Member. A list of Board Members and their contact information can be found in the Contact Information portion of this site.
Each sport has a commissioner. The commissioner is responsible for naming coaches, purchasing equipment, registering athletes and scheduling games with surrounding communities. You will find a list of sports that are offered, along with the commissioner’s name and which season the sport is played in the Contact Information portion of this site. If you have questions regarding a specific sport, you should contact the appropriate commissioner.
The goal of the DCAA is to teach children the fundamentals of the sport they are participating in, sportsmanship, and how to be a team player. Safety is always an issue, but commissioners and coaches strive to give each child ample playing time. Unless otherwise stated, all teams compete on a recreational level. Winning is great, but the fun of participating and preparing kids for the future is what is stressed. Participating in a sport teaches children many life lessons, enhances self-esteem, and helps keep them physically healthy. DCAA’s goal is to keep it a fun and positive experience.
You are encouraged to attend DCAA meetings held quarterly. Meeting dates, times and locations will be posted on the DCAA website once scheduled. Please feel free to contact any of the board members or commissioners if you have questions or if you would like to become involved. We look forward to working with you and your child.
