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 Tournament, held in the beginning of March. The outdoor showcase teams also begin practices in September to prepare for the National Hockey Festival (Thanksgiving weekend) and the Disney Showcase (early February in Orlando).
