Welcome to GOAL Soccer Club
This group is open to any adult: male or female, 20 years and older, experienced or new to the game, who is physically and medically capable of playing. There is no maximum age set - if you can do it, come out and play. Currently, we meet every Tuesday at 10 pm and we use and indoor field. During the summer, we use a variety of soccer fields throughout Suffolk.
Please bring shin guards and/or cleats (during summer), turf shoes (for indoor) to be as safe as possible. This is a friendly game group therefore no tackling or aggressive behavior will be tolerated. If you engage in such a playing style, you will be removed from the group. Still, due to the "contact sport" nature of soccer, injuries can and will occur, despite taking proper protection like shin guards and cleats. When you RSVP for one of our meet ups (or by walking onto one of our games) you are acknowledging that: 1) you may sustain an injury 2) you understand the risk of playing in our games, and 3) you are accepting full responsibility for the possible risk and the possible injury. Warming up before the game is always a good idea!
The games are played in different locations on different days during the week (during summer), so it is very important that you check the website every couple of days. If you have a smart phone, the MeetUp app (though far from perfect) is a useful tool for keeping in touch with the site.
Obviously, weather does not always cooperate with out best-laid plans, so cancellations do occur, and will be posted on the website up to 1 hour before the scheduled meet up time. I personally enjoy playing soccer in all weather (rain and snow included!) but do not want anyone to get injured.
If you RSVP for a meet up, you MUST show up on time or change your RSVP status if you change your mind / cannot make it. Please be considerate in this regard: others depend on your presence at each meet up.
Also, requesting to join this group, you confirm that you are responsible for reading your emails and comments on the website since are the main ways of communicating with the group.
And most of all, let us not forget that the goal is to have fun and get moving while playing soccer. With all of this in mind, let's play some futbol!
I am looking forward to meeting you on a soccer pitch and playing some futbol with you!
