Our History and Staff

Delaware Sharks has evolved to year round offerings serving athletes as young as 5 through high school seniors. The organization focuses on both development of on-field skills as well as developing life skills such as self-advocacy and honest communication. Delaware Sharks currently carries 190 athletes in the travel program, and it offers recreational programs year-round in partnership with Kirkwood Soccer Club, BPG Sports, and New Castle County Parks and Recreation. Our member base includes athletes not just from Delaware but from Maryland, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey as well.
