The normal cycle of events for Delaware Shore begins with the elementary training sessions for grades 1 through 6 in September each year (Sunday afternoons). This group then forms teams for play in the winter indoor league, also held on Sunday afternoons (January through the end of February). Finally, the group forms new teams for the summer league. The summer league (June through July) games are played on Monday and Wednesday evenings on a reduced sized outdoor field. Concurrently, the indoor travel teams start their practice sessions to get prepared for the winter indoor tourneys and to qualify for the Indoor National Tournaments. NIT's are near the end of February or early in March depending on age group. The outdoor showcase teams also begin practices in June after Wednesday night's summer league games to prepare for the Full field showcases in November, January and February.
