What we're about

Let's play the American sport of the future (as it's been since 1972)! Members of this group want to meet new players each week but enjoy playing with a core group of familiar players. Members also want to get a good run in, and even watch/discuss the highs and lows of the footballing world.

There is a small fee, which is a small investment in having a well-run regular group, where you feel safe and invested in a good game, trust your fellow players, have teams equally divided for skill/position types, etc. The money gets invested right back into the group to cover the costs of Meetup.com, new (and freshly laundered) scrimmage jerseys, match balls, goals, and other equipment for the group.

We all come to meetups from different backgrounds and have different goals for these games. We welcome everyone, whether you are a brand new player or a veteran pro. We will together blending fun and competition. We also strive to play the game as it should be, on a larger field focusing on good positioning, passing and playing as a team.

We play fair and keep rules strict. There is never sliding aloud, offsides are called (if obvious), and all out of bounds are kick in restarts. We also set up cones in full size goals so that the scoring is between the cone and the post, this helps people to learn how to improve their finishing by aiming for the outside edges of the net. We will sometime play with goalies if we have high numbers.

Be generous and make the game better. Come to these games to play with other people, not to prove anything to them. Have fun and bring a good attitude.

Wednesday Indoor Soccer

Sports Performance Center by BC United

$7.50

It's that time of the year to get back to the best Boulder Collective Meetup of the year. It's Indoor time!

We'll be indoors on Wednesday nights until the spring. Pricing is up this year, but we are going to make it worth every penny!

**Start time is 9:15pm, but try to be there early so we can get started right away.**

Cost is $7.50/person. This is the lowest we could work out. For the facility and use time, this is a great deal!

We play small-sided games on small turf fields (See photo). There are three fields and we get the entire facility! We play with teams of 5 players, 4v4 (with one more as sub) on each field and have a rotation where the winning teams move up and the losing teams move down. Teams are chosen at random and change every week. If teams are too uneven we will change them during the event.

This year we are going to set teams completely random by giving numbers at the beginning.

** We will be using red, blue, purple, green, black, and white colors for the teams. Jerseys will be provided. Please wear a black or white shirt only (bring both)**

I recommend you wear TURF shoes (not cleats or studs). This is mainly because its small fields and can be more toe stepping than usual. You are allowed to wear cleats but just suggest not to if you can.

The most important thing with this Meetup is that if you sign up/reserve, you show up. If you are signed up but can't make it, even if its last minute, cancel your spot. This allows the next person to sign up.

Since we have three games going at once, the numbers are very important. Also if you did not get a spot, you'll have to wait until the following week. Best to sign up early if you know you can make it. Always check back the day of the event to see if anyone has dropped.

These are coed games and playing experience ranges from beginner to semi-pro.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sign-up protocol:

- Pay $7.50 here to reserve a spot. This payment goes through PayPal but you don't need an account, just a card. Everyone should be easily able to do this. Let me know if you need help.

You'll be refunded if the meetup is cancelled due to weather conditions or if you cancel your RSVP 24 hours before the event. You have to let me know if you cancel. This is not automated and I do not go back and check constantly. So if you want a refund because you cancelled 24hours in advance, you have to LET ME KNOW! If you cancel later than 24 hours, you will not be refunded.

If the meetup is full and you want a spot, check back periodically to see if someone has dropped. I'll message the group if a spot is open Wednesday afternoon/evening. Sorry, there are no waitlists.

Unfortunately, we all have to pay a little more to reserve a spot because we do have to pay for the facility use. The rate is up a little bit this year as well. They are very kind to us and give us a good rate but it still costs.

Saturday Morning Soccer

CU Kittredge Turf Fields

$3.00

Wake up, grab your boots and let's go play the beautiful game!

Details:
We will be playing two games at the same time, one larger one (8v8) and a smaller one (4v4). So there will be four teams of 8 players and we will rotate through having two teams on the big field and one team splitting up on the small field. I will bring colored jerseys to make it easier.

Please bring $3 cash or send to venmo @ben-davis7
This goes to supporting the group with meetup costs, equipment, and our time spent managing and running this fantastic group.

***Everyone needs to bring a white and a black shirt***

As usual bring water, proper shoes, and everything you feel like you might need. Shin guards are not required, they are a personal choice.

Rules:
1. No slide tackling
2. Fouls are called by each individual
3. All out of bounds on the sidelines will be kick-ins
4. We will play corner kicks and goal kicks.
5. Masks are not required.
6. minimal contact and a focus on passing and "smart" play. If anyone gets too aggressive or makes people uncomfortable they will be asked to stop or leave, depending on the situation.
7. If you have any symptoms or any kind of sickness, please do not attend.

***Final Rule about signing up: because numbers and restrictions are very tight I will be very strict on people signing up and showing up. If you do not make the list, you do not come. period! If you sign up and do not show up, you will have one warning. If you do it again, you will be banned from the group for two weeks. I hate to be strict but the only way to keep quality and consistency is to enforce the rules. Please respect this and bring a great attitude. If you don't make the signup in time, keep an eye out if a slot opens up. Sign up early and often!****
