Join us for an hour and a half of 6v6 indoor pickup soccer! You'll get a ton of playing time in a well-organized event. 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!
To sign up for this game, please use our new registration system: https://grabagame.com/chicago-soccer/

If we have enough for more than 2 teams, we'll rotate the competition in a tournament-style format and crown a champion at the end of the event.
This game is 6v6. We play with hockey-sized goals and no goalies. The gym has wood floors and we play off the walls. It makes for a very fast-paced and high-scoring game. We often play with a futsal ball for these games.
What to Wear
We are playing indoors on a wood court. Cleats are not allowed. You may wear flats, turf shoes, gym shoes, or indoor shoes. Shin guards are highly recommended but not required. Bring a white shirt and a black shirt in case pinnies are not available. Please bring your shoes and change into them at the facility. This will help keep the floor clean of salt and water.
Level of Play
This event is open to all levels of play. We do our best to create even teams so that games are well-matched. There are no referees, so players need to play with sportsmanship and call their own fouls. The event host may make adjustments to teams to make them more even. Please comply with any requests or instruction made by the host to ensure a quality and enjoyable event for everyone.
Lincoln Park High School has two buildings. We will be playing in the Annex Gym, which is in the west building (smaller building). Enter on the east side of the building. The gym will be straight ahead and to the right.
