Wilmington Fall Recreational

For more than 30 years, Hockessin has had the best Recreational Program in Delaware.
Join us as we begin our program in Wilmington.

DEFC Wilmington seeks to honor special requests such as team mate requests and coach requests.  Do you have friends or classmates that you want to play with and want to know that you can be together on the same team?  Do you need to carpool with a classmate or neighbor?  Would you like to volunteer to coach and want to ensure your son or daughter's friends or classmates can be on the team?  We will work with you to create a fun and user friendly environment.

Please contact Recreational Director of Coaching Peter Hayes at phayes@delwarefc.org for more information on how DEFC Wilmington can help!

3v3 SOCCER TOURNAMENT

Delaware FC Hockessin 3v3 Tournament - Spooctacular

TBD

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!

Spooktacular Registration (coming soon)
