Welcome to Long Island Soccer
Long Island Soccer is a group formed to give everybody a chance to enjoy soccer. We know how hard is to join a league and play against very advanced teams. Well, this group is for you, if you want to play pick up soccer, friendly competitions with other members that love the beautiful game. Most of our players are coming back to play soccer after taking a break.
Most of our players have kids, jobs, and have a stressful life but they come here to relax and enjoy their free time.
This group is open to everyone 18 years old or older, experienced or beginner, physically capable of playing and willing to make friends, get healthier and enjoy the sport.
Soccer is a great sport and some of the benefits of playing it is the development of great stamina endurance, cardiovascular benefits and according to Livestrong.com, a player can burn around 700 calories in a 1 hour game.
Currently, we use Indoor facilities in Lindenhurst, Farmingdale, Ronkonkoma, Syosset, Westbury, Port Washington, Glen Cove, Garden City, etc.
Games are played at night, usually 9pm to 10pm, or 10pm to 11pm. (Earlier during summer time).
We have men soccer competitions, women soccer competitions and Coed soccer competitions.
When you are ready to play, just RSVP at the location that works best for you. If the location that you want do not have enough players, it will continue rescheduling until enough players commit to play.
We are working on expanding our game locations to bring the game to you. (Please, request a game to be open at your hometown if it is not available yet). During the summer, we use outdoor and indoor soccer fields throughout Long Island.
Please bring shin guards and turf shoes to be as safe as possible. This is a friendly group therefore no tackling or aggressive behavior is tolerated.
Understand that due to the nature of the sport, injuries might occur despite using protection like shin guards and turf shoes.
DO NOT BE A NO SHOW! DUE TO A LIMITED SPACE ON THE RSVP LIST, THERE WILL BE A CUT OFF TIME TO UPDATE YOUR RSVP. THE CUTOFF TIME TO UPDATE YOUR RSVP IS 7 PM.
IF YOU RESERVE A SPOT TO PLAY, YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE AND AGREE TO PAY THE FEE EVEN IF YOU DO NOT SHOW UP.
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 the beautiful game!
