Every inductee into the Delaware Sports Hall of Fame since our inaugural year in 1976 is represented on our website. Honoring the athletic excellence of these men and women is an integral part of Delaware sports history.


From our annual Delaware Sports Hall of Fame induction gala in May, celebrations of Black History Month and Women in Sports Month, as well as individual sports highlights, there is something for every sports fan.


A visit to the museum will take you back over 100 years of sports in Delaware, from the Lenni Lenape Indians right up to today. Experience memorabilia, artifacts, and the stories of Delaware legends.
