Saturday Morning Outdoor Pickup - Co-ed

This Meetup is past

23 people went


Games will be on the outdoor field and will cost $8 for a 90 minute game. Games are 7-a-side with a target of 20 players meaning three subs per team. Games begin officially at 10.30am and end at noon

This Saturday morning game will run weekly on the indoor field right through to May.

Cost will be $8 (incl HST) for players who arrive and pay before 8.50am

Players arriving and paying after 8.50am will pay $10.

The aim of the late fee is to encourage players to arrive early so that we can get teams organized and ensure that the game gets going right on time.

Players are required to bring[b] both[/b] red and white tops and must wear shinguards. Moulded cleats or flat soled shoes are permitted.

The following rules apply to DISC's Pickup Programs:

Designated Keepers

Keepers will be permitted to play at half price provided they commit to spending the entire game in goal. The Meetup system does not have a tool for managing this. The first two keepers to arrive and pay for any game will be considered to be the designated keepers for that game

Late Arriving Players

A major cause of problems is late arriving players. Ideally, players should arrive 15 minutes before the start time so that payment can be collected, teams sorted and the game get going right on schedule to maximize playing time. In future, players registered for a game who arrive after the designated start time will only be permitted to play if fewer than 20 players are playing. This 20 includes any unregistered individuals who did not sign up but were accepted to play due to there being fewer than 20 players.

Unregistered Players

Players who are not registered online for a game but turn up hoping to play will only be permitted to play if fewer than 20 players (including the organizer) are present at the designated start time.

No Shows

If a player registers for a game but does not show, they receive a snotty e-mail from me. If this happens twice, they are removed from the members list and banned. This ban is temporary and can be lifted by paying a $30 deposit against future games. Once the member has demonstrated regular, reliable attendance, the deposit will be returned. If the player misses a game s/he has registered for the playing fee will forgo the deposit and the player will be banned again.

The feedback I’m getting is that when it is right, the pickup is great fun. The above rules are designed to ensure that it is right as often as possible. If you have any suggestions or proposals for improving the games, please do not hesitate to e-mail me at [masked]
