Delaware Soccer Club (DSC) is currently pushing its house registration, which means that the doors are open for youth ages 3 to 14 to sign up for the program. DSC’s House League program is recreational program play that takes place at Delaware Park in the spring (nine weeks) and fall (seven weeks). If you’ve ever taken a walk down Hertel Avenue, and peered through the windows of the club’s home office, then you’ve seen the sharp looking jerseys and balls in the front display windows.
Delaware Soccer Club encourages and promotes ethical and moral behavior, good sportsmanship, community involvement and good citizenship.
Members of the club are outfitted with a DSC uniform (jersey, shorts and socks) and a ball, which is a pretty awesome package for any young person to obtain. While the club does play in the city, the program is open to players from across the region. Below is all of the information that you need to get up to speed with the club’s schedule, fees, etc.
- Players in the U4 through U14 divisions have one weeknight practice plus a game on Saturday. Our Junior Park Rangers, the U3 program, have one session per week.
- Teams in the DSC House League program play against each other in an 8 game rotating schedule over the course of the season.
