DFC is a volunteer run soccer club that has now been up and running here at Dulwich College Shanghai for over 5 years. From humble beginnings we now regularly have a membership of over 350 students from our College. 

DFC is open to all Dulwich College students from Reception to Year 13. It will normally take place on the Golden Bridge Field (across from the Starbucks/Megafit complex) - but does occasionally have to move to the School field. It is FREE, and is run entirely by volunteers from our community.  DFC serves as an opportunity for students to enjoy physical exercise with their friends in a relaxed, fun environment. DFC is coached by volunteer dads, mums and also Senior School students who undertake this activity as part of their studies. 

Training with DFC takes place on Sunday mornings and in order to play, appropriate footwear and shin pads must be worn together with school PE kit.  (Dulwich FC kit may be worn, however it is no longer for sale).

Participation requires registration before you arrive.

**COACHING/VOLUNTEERING  - Dulwich FC relies on the support and dedication of parent and senior school student volunteers. 
Parent Volunteer Coaches - In total we have around 50 coaches that we call upon each week. We are not looking for professionals, instead people who love sport and enjoy working with young people. You do not need to have any formal coaching experience. All levels of experience are welcome - there is no reason not to volunteer. Friday 31st Aug 6-8pm,  we will be running a "Coach the Coaches" session for all new and existing coaches (followed by some refreshments!).  Even if you travel for work, there is a way to get involved.   Many of our coaches successfully partner with others to ensure someone is available each week. If you think you can help even occasionally, please let us know!  Without exception all our parent & student coaches have found the experience rewarding in ways they never even expected, so come on out and give it a try. 

Student Volunteer Coaches - As a service opportunity for our Year 7-13 students we pair students with Parent coaches in order to help make DFC run every week - if you have a senior school student that might be interested have them sign up through the CCA program and we will have a table at the Service Fair on Tuesday 28 Aug

Admin Volunteers -  In addition to coaching, we need parent volunteers to help us with Administration, and Equipment. Specifically these are the roles we need leaders:
Admin Volunteers for each time slot (8:00-9:30, 9:00-10:30, 10:00-11:30)
Equipment Volunteers - Set up & Clean up each Sunday
