Meet other adults in the Denver Metro area that love the game of Soccer/Futbol. Our first motto:"A Máxima Diversão! Excelente!" translates from Portuguese to "Maximum fun! Excellent!" This was a comment left by a new member that describes the camaraderie, respectful nature, international flavor and diversity of the group. Diversity is a value we fiercely honor, respect and promote.
Our second motto: PASS THE BALL! We play in a style the that's informal, friendly & encouraging with an emphasis on fun, good sportsmanship and low stress. We are more cooperative than competitive. No sliding, no hacking, no uber-aggro players wanted. This is a light, fun game and no one here wants any injuries. If you are looking for intensive competition, there is an expert pickup hosted by Nas every day at 5pm on the West side of Washington Park.
Our third motto: Be Cool/Keep It Positive! We strive to be beginner friendly, encouraging, focused on having fun and sharing a passion for the game. Beginner friendly means we welcome beginners and those of all skills and abilities. It does not mean that anyone needs to hold back on their skills. If you are starting out and could use some skill tips or practice, please ask. Many of the Organizers are willing to do so, or can help you find someone who is. You are welcome to schedule a Beginner event any time you like.
Bring a reversible or light and dark shirt (if possible) so we can tell who is on who's team. Bring plenty of water! Many of us like wearing shin guards and soccer cleats, but they're certainly not required. Just come and play!
