Our Instructional soccer program offers opportunity to every player, from the 8 year-old just starting out to 12 year-olds and older who want to grow through advanced skills training and great team participation.

We have separate divisions for boys and girls. Practices are held twice a week by parent coaches, games are on Saturdays. Fields are 90' x 120', goals are 5' x 6'. Soccer Tots through U10's play each other in a league format on our grass fields on Saturdays at the Kirkwood Complex.

Instructional Program FAQs

When will I hear from the Coach?

Players will be notified several weeks after registration ends, provided payment has been received for your child. Please put a home phone number or a number where there is an answering machine. This will make communications by the coach more efficient. 

Do I have to travel to Kirkwood to practice?

No! Kirkwood has teams and practice sites throughout new Castle County - Newark, Bear, New Castle, Wilmington, and  Middletown to name a few. We are not restricted to just the area surrounding the Complex

When and where to we practice?

The Club does not dictate the time or neighborhood location for practice. Coaches select a neighborhood location and time once they have their roster.   The older teams only have 2 or 3 teams, so the location may not be close. Teams practice an average of twice weekly. All age brackets will play games on Saturdays. Older age groups (U12 and older) will play games in the Delaware Youth Soccer Association Interclub league with other soccer clubs on area fields.  

How are teams formed?

We try to have teams set up geographically with the intent of having practice closer to you, however we can't guarantee that we will have enough coaches in each neighborhood.
Requests for a specific coach cannot be honored. Due to a large number of turnovers of players from season to season, it is impossible to keep teams intact.
