Delaware Rush Spring Classic

The Delaware Rush Soccer Club is proud to sponsor the 27th Annual Spring Classic Soccer Tournament on March 24th and 25th, 2018. Our tournament will take place at several locations in and around the Hockessin DE area. Each year we host between 130-170 teams.  We look forward to bringing 2500 athletes, over 4000 family members, all together for a fantastic weekend of soccer!


UPDATE 3/22/18 2:00PM

Elite Tournaments and Delaware Rush regrets to inform you that the Delaware Rush Spring Classic has been cancelled in its entirety. We do our best to be prepared for all potential weather related issues and have contingency plans in place, however based on the amount of snow and ice accumulated on the fields, the fields are unplayable. 

We are currently working with the Insurance Company to process a claim so that we are able to refund the Spring Classic Application Fee.  More information will be sent to Managers and Coaches next week regarding the cancellation. We appreciate your understanding and know the disappointment you are feeling. We look forward to hosting your Team in the future.

Hotel contracts have an Impossibility clause to waive any penalty if the cancellation is due to an Act of God (weather). Halpern Travel will contact each hotel's Sales Department to invoke the Impossibility clause and to cancel your reservation. If you would like to keep your reservation, please contact Halpern Travel immediately at 888.640.6400 or
