Delaware FC Hockessin Spring Classic

Delaware Football Club Hockessin, in partnership with Elite Tournaments, is proud to host the 31st Annual Spring Classic Soccer Tournament on March 27th-28th, 2021. This small-sided tournament is open to Boys and Girls teams U8-U12, with games being played at Smith Estates Fields and the 76ers Fieldhouse in the Hockessin, DE area. With 130-170 teams participating in this event each year, we look forward to drawing over 2,500 athletes and 4,000 family members together for an excellent weekend of soccer! 



Elite Tournaments and Delaware FC Hockessin have partnered with Leveling the Playing Field to collect used sports equipment to give to underprivileged communities where children may not have affordable access to sporting goods and programs. They have donated over 100,000 items to youth sports organizations allowing them to reduce the cost of entry into these programs. Leveling the Playing Field’s donations have also allowed these programs to hire and train more staff for additional programs and more personalized coaching. We will be collecting used sports equipment for Leveling the Playing Field at all of our tournament locations! Donations can be dropped off at the headquarters area or with your field marshal.
