Saturday Afternoon Co-Ed Touch Football and Soccer / Networking

Rain cancels the event.

Please note:

Because there is a big basketball game going on at Stanford (Cal vs. Stanford), we will move the event this week to the Palo Alto High School football field.

Review the map to make it easier to find the football field.

 


The AFC and NFC championships are here. The Super Bowl is looming.

Football is in the air.....

Let's get together for a fun session of touch football, followed by light refreshments or food afterwards -- and networking.

You don't need to be a former varsity player or Heisman Trophy candidate (or powder puff football stand out) to come out and have a good time.

 

This is strictly for fun, and no previous experience is necessary.

This is touch football, not tackle, so no one should get hurt from participating.

 

We will also have a session of soccer (the other kind of football) to mix it up a bit.

 

What does success in football and soccer have in common with successful entrepreneurship?

 

1)  Teamwork

2)  Planning and strategizing

3)  Timing

4)  Execution

5)  Decision making

6)  Poise and confidence

17)  Overcoming pain

18)  Getting over mistakes

20)  Winning

21)  Being able to fail and then improve and do better the next time

22)  Being able to deal with trash talk, criticism, and negativity -- still keep your head up

 

and more.......!

 

Wear comfortable clothes and shoes for athletic activity.

If you are out of shape or have any physical limitations, please consult a physician before coming out to participate.

 

After some playing time, we'll head over to a nearby cafe or eatery for refreshments and/or food --  and socializing, networking and fellowship.
