Welcome to Arlington's first official Yoga Ball Soccer group! What is Yoga Ball Soccer you ask? Good question! The game is pretty simple; it is played like a traditional game of soccer, but using a giant yoga exercise ball in place of a soccer ball. Unlike soccer, Yoga Ball Soccer (YBS) allows you to use any part of your body including your hands to get the ball down the field and into the goal.
The game will be held every Sunday beginning at 4:00pm at Long Bridge Park (475 Long Bridge Drive Arlington, VA 22202). Long Bridge Park is a fairly new facility consisting of 3 new fenced synthetic turf lighted fields complete with restrooms and drinking fountains and a dedicated parking lot. The park is conveniently located within walking distance of the Crystal City and Pentagon City metro stations and has it's own parking lot for those who drive. For more info on the park, check out this link: http://www.arlingtonva.us/Departments/ParksRecreation/scripts/parks/LongBridgePark.aspx
I have all of the necessary equipment including yoga balls, team arm bands, and a scoreboard so all members need to bring is themselves. The games will be competitive, but keep in mind that it's really just about having fun so I would appreciate it if people would refrain from getting angry at eachother; it's just not that serious, ok? We will use whichever field is available at the time of the game so when you arrive, just look for the big orange ball and you'll know that is our group.
Joining this group and playing in the games is 100% FREE, but if anyone wants to throw me a few dollars to help pay for the organizer dues that I have to pay to run this group I would certainly appreciate it.
There may be some Sundays where I am unavailable so I will be sure to post the status of the games in case they are cancelled due to that or inclimate weather.
