Hometown: Brooklyn, NY
December 15, 2011
I have been playing soccer all my life. I haven't had time to play in a long time due to college but i love playing the game. I play anything but goalie and at the moment am out of shape but look forward to getting back into shape with all of you.
It allows me to take myself out of whatever is on my mind and play the sports that i love. I love playing sports and i haven't had a chance to play them in a long time so i look forward to playing again.
Yes and it is very crowded. We were able to get 5 90 minute blocks total for the 3 month season. Hopefully more to come at Pier 40 later in the summer if this gets off to a good start and we're looking for a few new locations, both for full 11s and small sided, which will go up in our main group in addition to our current indoor games: http://www.meetup.com/PlaySoccerInNYC...
There is no permit, so we kind of play things by ear. That could mean a search for field space; it could be 1 6v6 game, 2 9v9 games, or one game with rotating teams. It all depends on turnout and conditions. We need to stay flexible!
You'll see a bunch of ass gathering in the park. I'm the guy collecting the permit fee and handing out pinnies.
Hey Andy, welcome.
We almost never cancel these meetups - they're permit-less and fairly informal. Obviously, if it's torrential rain and lightning I will go on the site and cancel, but generally we'll be there. We just make a 3v3 or 4v4 game, rather than 2 8v8's.
The fields are turf, cleats are fine, but I've found turf shoes to be the best. It's actually good to bring cleats in case we get ousted and have to play on the grass fields. Shinguards are optional (I prefer em to bruised shins)
Heyoo man, done with 2/3 of my finals and headed to the game right now -- team6 is about to snag a ticket to the final
Hey Andy, Sorry didnt see you message until now. I generally play up front position, poacher type, or attacking Mid.
Are you playing this saturday at randalls island? if so still looking for squad members?
Hey Andy, Bring it to the next meetup. Victor usually comes to the friday games. if he's doesn't i can hold it for him. Thanks!
Next time could be.
See you soon
