Weekday Pick Up Soccer at the EllipseCANCELED

Spring is in full swing and now we can regularly start our weekdays pick up soccer. Many of you voted and we will have them Wednesdays and Fridays. I can also make another meet up for Mondays if we have enough players. We aren't hard to find, we usually meet up by the Big Oak Tree right next to The Boy Scouts of America Memorial. This is a friendly social event, lets keep it that way. No sliding and no rough plays PLEASE! As always, please bring a dark and white shirt. also a ball if you are able to.

Ellipse Field Layout The 1st field to go to is the top one. As it gets colder we expect to drop down to 1 game/field and may alternate fields so the grass can grow. Sometimes our fields 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 Also, if you have any suggestions (e.g., if any information on this page is out of date and needs to be updated, if you got lost due to wrong instructions, etc.), don't hesitate to tell Stephen, Romeo, or Jason [masked]).

Metro directions: exit federal triangle. South is Constitution (which goes East-West). Walk towards the sun (south-west). You will soon hit the intersection of 15th and constitution. Make a right. Games should be on the left of the food trucks on 15th

      Understood. I believe we all catch that fever. Unfortunately the Arlington Long Bridge fields are no longer available to us. There was a mishap and we aren't allow on those fields anymore. I can't speak on any turf fields here in DC. But if you happen to come across a empty turf field, please let me know and I can adjust accordingly.

    GUYS: The fields are too wet and muddy to play today. The grass has yet to grow, so its best if we cancel todays game. We have the rest of the Spring and Summer to play. As long as winter is gone for good. Thanks everyone!
