Special Announcement regarding Kirkwood & Delaware FC

Kirkwood Families,

Kirkwood Soccer Club is excited to announce a deeper relationship with Delaware Football Club (and DEFC founding clubs Hockessin Soccer Club/Delaware Union), via a new Affiliate Agreement, intended to broaden the benefits of this ongoing successful partnership.

This new phase of our relationship will bring significant opportunities for all affiliate clubs in a new era of communication, resource sharing, and inter-club cooperation.

Some key benefits and highlights of this DEFC Affiliate Agreement:
• Shared tournaments and league development
• Cooperative & positive multi-club culture and communication
• Enhanced player and coaching development pathway
• Broader and more inclusive opportunities in diverse communities
• Additional opportunities for college recruiting and education
• Tie-in with Philadelphia Union ID and US Soccer scouting network
• Resource sharing and more efficient club administration opportunities

Does this have immediate impact on Travel and Recreational teams?
• Travel teams remain as-is with games, schedules, and team make up the same
• DEFC pathway will remain (U13 and up)
• Recreational teams will see new staff focused on coaching and member support
• Recreational program will see additional enhancement to season-end activities
• Both Travel and Rec uniforms will feature co-branding of Kirkwood and DEFC (Fall 2019)

As we move forward, members will start to see some changes and updates coming down the pipeline related to co-branding, website and social media updates, and existing program enhancements.

We will communicate updates to our members as each phase of this partnership is implemented.

The opportunity is here to evolve the club in a time of great change for our sport in the country. Thank you for being part of shaping the landscape in Delaware youth soccer! We look forward to partnering with ALL of you to make this a success!
