Saturday Pickup Soccer - Alcott School Turf - Lincoln Park - 1:00 PM
Join us for the best pickup soccer in the heart of Lincoln Park. This well-organized event will rotate teams through a 2-hour mini-tournament. Sign up by yourself or with friends. You'll get a ton of playing time in a competitive, yet fun, afternoon of soccer. Our host will check players in, divide players into teams, and make sure that everything runs smoothly. All you have to do is show up ready to play! Format: Depending on the turnout, the host will determine if we play a 2-team game or break into 3 or more teams for a tournament. We are equipped to set up multiple fields on site, and our goal is to maximize playing time for everyone. Teams will have no more than 1 sub for the tournament format. Everyone is guaranteed a minimum of an hour of actual playing time - but usually gets more (up to the full 2 hours). Pinnies will be provided to differentiate the teams. Champions will have their picture taken and added to our photo gallery of tournament winners! Pricing You will be able to pre-pay for this event once we have enough people confirmed for a game and when we feel confident the weather will allow us to play. The host will post a comment with instructions how to pre-pay when the option is available. $15 - RSVP online and pay in advance $15 - RSVP online and pay cash at the event As of March 2018, each Grab A Game Participant must fill out our online waiver.
