DCR 95 Completes Their Club Career 2013-05-15

Five years ago, almost to the day, a group of players and parents from Jtown Youth Soccer faced a choice.  After years of playing together, they could either (a) tryout for different select clubs, ending their friendships or (b) stay together and form their own select team.  They didn’t know if they would be able to compete at a higher level but they knew they had coaches who had knowledge and a passion for the game (thank you Ben and Stu!) and that they had teammates they loved.  That was the beginning of Derby City Rossoneri.  The players from that first team would improve dramatically over the next five years.  In addition, they began a new club dedicated for girls – one that now has 10 teams and well over 130 players!  On Tuesday, May 14, that first team played its last competitive game.   This is their photograph from that last game, including some of the original Jtown players:  Aubrey, Alex, Sara, Bronte, Hannah, Christina and Cayla, as well as the players who have become their friends:  April, Lexi, Sarah D., and Hope.  This may have been their last match but this is a group that will always be remembered for their firsts!  

The 95 team, the first ever DCR team

DCR History And Mission
Derby City Rossoneri (DCR) is a relatively new select soccer club based in Louisville, KY exclusively committed to the development of girls' soccer. Our goal is to develop a family friendly environment where our girls develop their skills with experienced coaches and compete against other select teams, while encouraging the development of solid relationships for the girls and not imposing undue strain on the families.  Our teams currently compete in the Kentucky Select Soccer League (KSSL) and Buckeye Premier League. We also participate in various tournaments each season.

In the Fall of 2007, our founder Dennis Murrell formed the first DCR team from a hand picked group of recreational players. Since that time we have grown to several teams and have multiple division titles in the KSSL and have won or placed in many tournaments. All of our coaches are licensed by the United States Soccer Federation (USSF) and have both experience and a passion for the game. They volunteer their time to teach the girls the game of soccer. Because of this we are able to keep the cost low in order to provide an enjoyable and learning soccer experience for your daughter. We have grown from that first team, with 16 players, to now having 9 teams and over 120 players, with our girls now playing high school soccer at some of the most competitive schools in the area.  Take a few minutes to browse the pages of the site and if you decide you would like to join us or just have questions, feel free to email us at dcrsoccer@gmail.com.
