Delaware Union Discovery Program

This 7-week program is designed to introduce basic soccer skills or build on players skills in a fun environment.  Coaches will introduce a new skill each week for players to develop and will then reinforce the skill through soccer related games and activities.  Our U3/U4 age groups will always end with activities centered around scoring goals and our older U5/U6 ages will conclude with 4v4 scrimmages.
