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 2015/2016 (U6) thru 2007/2008 (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.

Player Development Program

During the Winter season, we offer additional Recreational Player Development Program that is designed to provide supplemental training for our youngest recreational players that aspire to improve their skill level and experience an age appropriate curriculum under the guidance of professional staff coaches.

This is a multi-week training 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.

The Winter sessions will be held on Saturdays, indoor at the Hockessin PAL.
