Field Hockey Leagues

Weather Line: (302) 736-7155 


We offer two seasons of field hockey league play.  Seasonal Leagues offer up to four (4) divisions:  Women's Adult League, High School League, Middle School League and Adult Co-Ed League. Our summer league begins play in June and runs through August with games being played at the Schutte Park, Dover High School and Scott B. Miller Stadium/Delaware State University downtown campus fields. (Formerly the Wesley College athletic field area.)    In the winter, we offer our indoor league play at the John W. Pitts Recreation Center. Competition begins in December and runs into March when we crown our champions. The Pitts Recreation Center features two courts for continuous play.
