Adult League

DSC Adult Soccer League

Delaware Soccer Club offers both indoor and outdoor co-ed leagues for adults, 21 and older. All leagues are meant as an opportunity for players of all skill levels and ages to come together and enjoy playing the game of soccer. Although some soccer experience and level of fitness is expected, there is the potential for a wide range of skill levels on the field at the same time, and players must consider this and compete accordingly.

DSC does not track wins/losses and there is no "League winner." The League offers players one hour per week to have fun meeting new people, getting some exercise, and playing soccer. Coach Rey Martinez, a 16-year professional soccer player, oversees the League and has the authority to remove any player(s) competing at a level of intensity deemed unsafe and/or inappropriate for the level of competition. We encourage all players to have fun and enjoy playing this great game with others of all ages and skills who also love the game of soccer. Sportsmanship and fair play is expected at all times.

The Outdoor Adult League runs two sessions, the first is nine weeks, May 15 - July 17 (off July 3). Games are played every Saturday, either 3-4pm or 4-5pm, at Point of the Meadow in Delaware Park. Cost is $90.

The second session of the Outdoor Adult League is 12 weeks, July 24 - Oct. 16 (off Sept. 4). Games are played every Saturday, at 12-1pm through August, and 3-4pm after Fall House League begins in Sept. All games are at Point of the Meadow in Delaware Park. Cost is $120.

Games are played either Weds or Thurs nights at either 9-10pm or 10-11pm at the Nardin Academy Athletic Center. Cost is $100. Teams will likely play 6v6, but will depend on registration and roster numbers.

The Delaware Soccer Club Adult Leagues are a great way for anyone who enjoys soccer to compete, meet others and have fun playing this great game!

The co-ed leagues are open to all players of any skill/ability born in 1999 or earlier. Players must register individually, but may include teammate requests to form your own group/team. All players will be placed on teams with every effort to create fair and competitive play. 

Indoor games are played once-per-week, either Monday (if necessary), Wednesday or Thursday, at either 9:00 p.m. or 10:00 p.m. Each team will rotate the day/time on which they play from week to week, so sometimes you'll play Monday, sometimes Wednesday and sometimes Thursday. All games are played within the Nardin Academy Indoor Athletics Complex on the corner of Hertel Avenue and Delaware Avenue, right behind Kohl's and K-Mart.

The indoor League format is 5v5 or 6v6, including goalies, depending on registration/roster size. Game length is 2x25 minutes. We will not keep any standings for this league.
