Announcing a new Meetup for GO Philly Soccerheads!What
: Back to Basics: Drills N Thrills NightWhen
: Thursday, July 15,[masked]:30 PMWhere
: Schuylkill River Park Football Field
24th & Park Towne Place
Philadelphia, PA 19130
Taking a break from our usual scrimmage to focus on some finer points. Beating defenders & counter attacks, solidifying defense, shots on goal from afar (without kicking it into the next county!), positions & marking, passing game & assists, and goalie practice. Think we might have to play 2 on 1 Slaughter, just for kicks, then a little hour or so scrimmage. Feel free to bring some practice drills of your own!
Still on a quest to find the perfect field...We'll try Edgeley Field at 33rd and Diamond at Dennis's request. Go North on 33rd & turn left on to Diamond; it will dead-end into Reservoir Drive. It's a big place but we'll try to be near that intersection. Will send my phone number to Yeses in case you get stuck. I know that at least two other groups meet here Thursday nights, but hopefully there will be room for us to find a spot... Laura says that if you can't find it from those directions, you're probably not smart enough to play on the team. With that on the table, I'll try to leave work at 2 so I can leave plenty of time to get lost....

All welcome, beginning around 6:30, ending at about 8:30 or whenever you need to leave. Some nights we may end at 8:15 & do 15 minutes of drills around a particular skill. Casual play, cleats & shinguards recommended but optional. Bring LOTS of water, it's hot! Will take a break halfway through for water and stretching. If you have a ball & cones, bring 'em along.
Contact phone numbers will be sent to everyone who RSVPs Yes by Monday night. If anything changes between Monday night and Tuesday night, the Meetup page will be updated during the day; I'd recommend leaving on that particular setting. Email Amy if you don't have Meetup access during the day and would like text updates.
See ya there!
