Pick-up Soccer at the Ellipse

With Day Light Saving time in effect, we should continue our pick up soccer games in back of the good ole' white house. First few weeks may be a few people attending, but the numbers will grow stronger with the temps raising. Come one come all. Spread the word. ⚽ Time to get back into shape 

Notes: The exact location for the games are @ http://goo.gl/maps/IGYP9 .  But also check http://goo.gl/maps/VTDbB .

Sometimes our location may already be in use.  Also, once there was a security threat and we had to move.  We *should* post most location changes, but it can be difficult, since we will be playing.  Therefore, we suggest trying to get there on time, if possible.  If you see someone, don't be shy to ask if they are there for the game.  If it is your first time, try bringing a soccer ball or soccer jersey.  It is best to bring an extra shirt that is opposite to the one you also have.  (If you have a colorful shirt on, bring a black, white, and/or gray one.)

Lastly, after the game, we suggest getting phone numbers of some players.  They might come in handy during iffy weather.  Also, if you have any suggestions (e.g., if any information on this page is out of date and needs to be updated, if you got lost due to wrong instructions, etc.), don't hesitate to tell Romeo or Jason [masked]).

Metro directions: exit federal triangle.  South is Constitution, going East West.  Walk towards the sun (south-west). You will hit the intersection of 15th and constitution.

On Fridays hang a right at 15th.  Game should be on the left.

On Wednesdays walk straight.  Game should be on the right.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
