Thanks for taking the poll. And thank you those of you who have emailed me and offered to help! You are all awesome. Details to come -- I may be setting up the games via and other group. More info to come for December -- you'll get an email with details. NOTE: CHECK BACK FOR UPDATES. WE ARE ON HIATUS! THANKS :). I HIGHLY RECOMMEND "MANHATTAN-INTERNATIONAL-COED-SOCCER" run by Simon. I've played several times with his group and it's EXCELLENT. Join that here: The only Manhattan Pick-up soccer group for beginners ONLY! No slide-tackling, no pushing people over, no fighting, no acting like soccer is war. This is fun, friendly and ONLY for people looking to boost their soccer skills while meeting fun new people. NOT for people who: played your whole life, considered going pro, get frustrated with a slow game, have EVER gotten in a meet-up soccer fight. FOR people who: played long, long ago, are just learning, want to improve skills, are a good player but want to help others learn (and don't mind a very slow game). Why Join? We're the only Manhattan beginning meet-up. Get outside, get great exercise, get in shape for the summer, and meet some new people ? all in a low-pressure, fun environment. This is about the fun of the game, not showing off or winning. We have games all over and are in the process of getting permits for September. This is a very informal group. Join us for practice sessions, plenty of kicking the ball around, and some games. Often, we'll meet in Central Park.

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.
