Long Island Co-Ed Soccer is the area's first and most well established adult co-ed soccer meetup group. The Club was founded in 2010 and has grown from a small fledgling group to a powerhouse organization with multiple weekly games for men and women who enjoy playing friendly pick-up style soccer. Long Island Co-Ed Soccer offers all of its members the opportunity to play indoor and outdoor soccer in a fun and very supportive environment where getting a good workout and making friends is top priority. We frequently host other events outside of soccer,watch matches and attend soccer games together.
Our games are played in Elmont, Floral Park and at the Hofstra bubble, depending on the time of year and the day of the week. The games are usually permitted full field with large goals but we sometimes have small sided games with Pugg goals.
We also host tournaments about 4-6 times a year. These tournaments have become epic events within the club with the winners are awarded medals or trophies for their victory.
Our spots open to all members each week on Monday nights at 8:30 pm SHARP. As the area's premier club, all of our games fill up quickly,especially during the spring, summer and fall. RSVP is on a first come first serve basis and teams are sent out the night before the game between 8 and 9 pm. You may RSVP for as many games each week as you want. The Club has one golden rule - If you RSVP for the game, you must show up for your spot on time. If you change your mind about a game, you must change your RSVP no lather than 8:00 pm the night before the match (or 4pm for weeknight games) so that another member from the wait list can take your spot. Please, don't take a spot and not show up as your team relies on your attendance!! If you do this after receiving a warning, you are barred from RSVPing for a month and lose a spot in the next tournament.
In case of bad weather, check the site before you head out, in case of cancellation because of heavy rain or snow. We try to call the games about 1 hour before the posted start time.

Rules of Play:
Please note that all of our events are friendly events where slide talking, aggressive play and abusive language are not tolerated. Any member who engages in this kind of misconduct will have their membership revoked. Please also understand that soccer is a contact sport and that while we do our best to make it a fun game, you are assuming the risk of sustaining a serious injury when you play in one of our games.
Since we don't have referees, we enforce offsides on an honor system. Players are expected to always play fairly and this includes playing onside at all times. If, however, you notice that someone is offside, you may call that player offside. To enforce this rule, we ask defenders and keepers to be mindful of the rule and to politely enforce the rule at all times. If there is someone posing a particular problem, please notify your organizer and they will resolve if offline at a later time.
"Hot Lava" Rule:
When we use the small Pugg goals, you'll notice that we sometimes place orange disc cones in front of the goal to form a bigger perimeter. No player (including the keeper) is permitted to stand idle inside the box or the "hot lava", unless and until there is play in front of the goal. The purpose of the hot lava perimeter is to open up the goal and afford more chances for a shot or goal. The Puggs are small and shots are difficult to begin with. It's been our experience that having defenders and keepers standing idle in front of the goal greatly reduces opportunities for goals. If you notice players standing inside the hot lava you may politely remind them of the hot lava rule. If there is someone posing a particular problem, please notify you organizer and they will resolve it via the meetup site at a later time.
Penalty Kicks: are always indirect kicks.
