Ensuring a smooth

The Wilmington Recreational Soccer League season begins this Spring 2023 for age groups – Under-8, and Under-10, with practices beginning March 20, 2023 and includes 6 game days!

Starting in the Spring of 2023 Sporting Delaware, in partnership with Future Soccer Stars Foundation (FSS) will provide a community-based youth soccer recreational league for northern Delaware.  The recreational league will look to build a fun environment for players to develop technical, physical and social skills through soccer.  Sporting Delaware and FSS are focused on player development, and from U8 through U10 there will be no standings, win-loss tracking, or playoffs.

Volunteers play a key part in the success of the recreational league. Please consider donating your time by signing up to be a volunteer coach. Each team should have 2 coaches to help with any potential scheduling conflicts. Sporting Delaware and FSS will provide coaching education resources throughout the season. Each coach will have to go through a background check, SafeSport Certification and Concussion training per the Delaware Youth Soccer Association.
