Winter Season Information

General Information

The Winter Indoor Recreational Program is a fun way to keep playing soccer indoors through the winter months. This is a "game only" format program with games every Saturday at the Hockessin PAL Center. Games are played with a "futsal" ball on a hard court surface. Futsal balls are special low-bounce balls that promote foot skills and creativity. The game is fast and fun!

This program is for Recreational players in age groups 2014/2015 (U6) thru 2006/2007 (U14). Not available for travel/competitive carded players. The plan is to offer gender specific play for all age levels. However, if we do not get enough players by gender to register for any given age group, then we will combine to form coed teams in that specific age group.
