3v3 SOCCER TOURNAMENT

Delaware FC Hockessin 3v3 Tournament - Spooctacular

October 31, 2021

Our Spooktacular is a One-Day 3v3 tournament for instructional/recreational players in the 2014/2015 (U8) thru (High School) age groups.

Each year we close out our Fall Recreational season with our 3v3 Spooktacular tournament. This tournament is for recreational players and teams from Delaware FC Hockessin and other local clubs and schools. The tournament is great fun for our local soccer community!

Are you having trouble forming a team? Is your coach unavailable for the event? Does your team have too many interested players for one team, but not enough for two? While we encourage teams to participate with their current Fall teams, it is not required. Any parent can register and coach any group of recreational players. Organize your teams with teammates, friends or classmates. Don't miss out!

FALL PLAYER DEVELOPMENT/FREE PLAY PROGRAM

During the Fall and Spring seasons, we offer a Recreational Player Development Program/Free Play that is designed to provide supplemental training and additional small sided play for our recreational players in the U8, U10 and U12 age groups that aspire to improve their skill level. The sessions will include a 15-20 minute technical skills portion followed by small sided (5v5, 4v4, 3v3) free play portion.  All sessions will be under the supervision of a DEFC staff coach.

The ideal player for this program is the player that is more focused and interested in exploring the game at a higher competitive level.

This is a multi-week program administered by trained and licensed staff coaches open to all instructional players in the U8, U10 and U12 age groups.  The training is instructed in a safe, fun and challenging environment that matches the demands of the game.

This is a four week program with sessions on Friday evenings on our turf field at Smith Estates:

740 Evanson Road
Hockessin, DE 19707

The dates for the Fall 2021 program are 10/1, 10/15, 10/22 and 10/29.  Start times will be 5pm, 6pm and 7pm depending on your age group.  You will be notified of the start time one week prior to the start of the program.

Space in each age group is limited.  Registration will close on 9/27.  The cost for program participation is $65.
