Welcome to Cinco Ranch Soccer Meetups. This group is for anyone who loves soccer and wants to get a quick work out. Intermediate to avid soccer players are welcome. We don't mean to be rude, but if you've never played before or are working on your basics still, please find a beginners meetup. We want to gear this group toward a higher quality of play in order to build community among avid footballers who live for the game. Members will be added in a as needed basis. For the people that want join us; right now we are not accepting new members. You can send the request but the waitlist time is almost two to three months.
We believe that playing on large field 11 vrs 11 is better left for the pros who can really go at it. In our past games we have had 20+ players in the field making the games crowed and reducing the soccer to bunch of people running for the ball . When games are this big they becomes overwhelmingly disorganized.For this reason we champion a 14 or 18 max player game that is intense for all 12-14 players and it is short lived for one hour. This way 14-18 players get a very efficient 1 hour workout and leave the pitch feeling they have played soccer.
Here are the rules and details:
1. We will start promptly; no later than 15 minutes after the start time.
2. No Guests are allowed. Unless approved by organizer.
Only members are welcome for regular meets. This meet is to develop a community of soccer players that eventually will get to know each other. This is a PRIVATE meetup. In case of a guest please contact the organizer before bringing one. He or she will let you know if it is ok or not to bring one.
3. There is no slide tackling, grabbing of clothing/other players, picking, or dangerous play.
Remember that when defending, the object is to get the ball, not the man. So, please keep you arms down, watch your high kicks and stay on your feet. Other than that, feel free to play as hard as you'd like. Violation of this rule will be noted and if the problem reoccurs you will be asked to leave and booted from the Meetup. We all have day jobs, no one can afford an injury.
4. Please be mindful of the RSVP system.
If you are on the wait list or are not RSVPed, please don't come out. Conversely, if you can no longer make it, please unRSVP so our wait listed comrades will automatically take your place. We always plan accordingly to how many members RSVP and it ruins this for everyone if we don't allow for a system that controls the size of games.
5. Proposing other times for meetups.
Feel free to propose other meetup times and the number of members who can attend the proposed meetup. I will schedule this meetup for you if you accept to host the meetup.
6. We want an atmosphere of fun, friendly competition.
We want to make friends and build community, so, it's ok to tell jokes and have a good time, but we're truly out here because we love and want to play soccer. Coaching needs to be in check, some people don't respond well to it. So try to keep you frustrations low and be constructive. If you cause problems for the group with a negative attitude or start fights (verbally or physically) you will be asked to leave and if it happens a second time, you will be banned.
7. No members under 18 allowed.
8. Photo on profile required.
A photo is required in profile to identify you during meets. This way you can Identify us and we can identify you.
9. By RSVP and attending game you acknowledge and accept following statement:
