Our games are for all levels and people that prefer to play a non-competitive game of soccer, break a sweat while exercising running up and down the field with the ball and all this happening in a very laid-back and non-judgmental environment. Please, arrive 10 minutes before the game so we can get the teams set up.
We'll play 3 simultaneous games of 8 on 8, with small goals. There will be 6 teams on the field and we will play three games, 30 minutes/game. Every 30 minutes we will have a short break and teams will switch to play against different team. Please check your email or our meetup message board on friday night or before 12.00pm on Saturday to see what team you are on. This will save us a lot of time on the field.
RULES OF THE GAME:
First and most important rule of the game is to have fun and enjoy the time on the field! Rough play and offensive language will absolutely not be tolerated!!! In plain words, no slide tackling, no pushing and no telling off.
No power shots allowed. No power shots means; you can shoot the ball but not as hard as you can. This doesn't mean that you can not take the shot at all. Kicking the ball or taking the shot on the goal, is of course allowed.
If you don't sign up for the game, do not show up.
If you are late for the game, you must wait until the game in progress is over to join your team.
Those that don't comply with these rules, will kindly be asked to leave the field so others can enjoy the game and maybe a two game ban.
Any other questions regarding the rules of the game or anything else, should be directed to the organizer directly or to the assistant organizer/s!!!
