Season Details

2022 Spring season information coming soon!


Each season our Recreational Coaches for age groups U8 and above nominate 4 players from their respective teams top be recognized as "DEFC Recreational All Stars"

"All Stars" are highlighted on the DEFC website and through our various social media platforms  - Facebook, Instagram and Twitter

U8, U10 and U12 All Stars are invited to participate in a round robin, 4v4 play day at Smith Estates on our magnificent Bermuda grass fields.  The All Star payday is a fun filled afternoon of high level, competitive matches that is attended by DEFC Staff coaches to identify players ready to make the transition to our competitive program.


3v3 Soccer tournament


Each year we close out our Spring Recreational season with our 3v3 Springtacular tournament.

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

This tournament is for recreational players and teams from Delaware FC 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 Spring coach unavailable for the event? Does your Fall team have too many interested players for one team, but not enough for two? While we encourage teams to participate with their current Spring 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!
