Deep Run Valley Sports Association

deeprun pres gerald may signs purchase agreementDRVSA began play as the Dublin Little League and soon Deep Run Valley Little League at two fields behind Goldie·s Diner in Dublin, PA in the spring of 1963, following a series of organizational meetings in 1962. The League initially had 4 Major teams and 5 minor teams.

Expansion began in 1969 when the Major Division moved to 6 teams and the minors to two 4-team divisions. This expansion prompted the purchase of 16.5 acres in Hilltown for $10,000. With Softball and a Senior Division added in the early 70·s, Deep Run left sanctioned Little League and incorporated as the DRVSA.

Following the inception of Soccer in 1976, a second floor was added to the clubhouse. Continued growth led to the addition of 3 acres from Carson's in 1995 and 3 soccer fields on Telegragh Road. Currently more than 10 soccer fields and 9-10 ball fields are used annually.

Most recently, major facilities improvements (press boxes & dugouts) have created quality playing fields for our various baseball/softball programs. Two pavilions (one donated by the Schramm Family in John's memory) and a utility building are also used heavily.

As our facilities have grown, our programs, too, have evolved. In 1990, The League returned officially to official Little League status for baseball and softball. Our affiliation with Connie Mack continues, and travel soccer has grown beyond our original Upper Bucks Soccer League membership. Finally, in the late 90's a basketball program was instituted and has grown rapidly. Our Membership is closing in on 2200 families and the budget is over $350,000.

Deep Run 1969 This brief historical overview shows that we owe a great debt to our founders and subsequent leaders, sponsors, coaches, participating families and the community at large.

 

 

 

 

 

Located in Hilltown Township, Deep Run Valley Sports Associatin (DRVSA) provides Pennridge School District and the surrounding community's children with Soccer, Basketball, Baseball, Softball, and Lacrosse programs.

The club's purpose is to provide an instructional atmosphere, to develop the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed and enjoy the various sport programs from an intramural level to travel level.

As a nonprofit organization, Deep Run is 100% dependent on the money we raise internally to fund our athletic programs (Baseball, Basketball, Lacrosse, Soccer, and Softball). We are not funded by any tax monies or municipal funds, unlike other townships that may provide recreational sports. For this reason, we require each family pay an annual membership fee of $100 (Each family pays this once annually at the first sport they play that calendar year).  This fee helps cover the costs of such things as: maintenance and improvement of the fields on site and offsite; maintenance of the clubhouse and sports complex; gym rentals; insurance; and much more.

The Deep Run Hall of Fame gives special recognition to individuals who as members, sponsors, or players of Deep Run Valley Sports Association have made outstanding contributions to the organization.

Congratulations to the 2016 Hall of Fame Individuals & Sponsors who were inducted into the Deep Run Valley Sports Association Bi-Annual Hall of Fame Banquet Nov. 9, 2016 held at the Sellersville Fire House. John Cardacin, Melissa Bargione, Michael Raphael, William Dameron, Hans Sumpf & Wilwert Electronics.
