What we're about

Attention:

Currently games are scheduled for late afternoon on Saturdays. If anyone is interested in hosting games on other days or times, please message me if you would like to be a co-organizer.

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

This is a group for anyone interested in friendly pickup soccer games in the Duluth/Norcross/Johns Creek/Suwanee/Lawrenceville area. All skill levels are welcome to come and play, so we ask that games be friendly and not too overly competitive. No shirt pulling, overly aggressive tackling, or anything else of that matter. We hope to promote a friendly atmosphere in which anyone will be welcome, no matter which skill level, age, or gender.

Rules

1. No shirt pulling, overly aggressive tackling, or anything else of that matter.

2. Please pass the ball! No one likes ball hogs no matter how good they are. Not everyone is at the same skill level so those at the lower levels will appreciate it if you pass the ball so that they can improve their own skills.

3. We follow most rules of FIFA but there are a few changes to make the game easier to enforce. This includes no offsides as well as having goal kicks after any goal. Corners are allowed and throw-ins can be replaced with a "kick-in".

4. Fouls and hand balls will be given benefit of the the doubt if there is more than one person who calls it. We do not want big arguments to occur since there is no ref there to make the final call.

5. Have fun!

Equipment

Pinnies will be made available for most games so no need to bring certain colored shirts.

If possible, it would be appreciated if people bring a soccer ball. Although at least one will be provided, it is often found that more than one ball is convenient and allows for more game time.

In the current default location there are full sized goals made available, but in the case of smaller games (6 to 12 people) we can set up cones or even make small goals available.

Please Join Us!

This group is free to join and I hope that you will enjoy playing soccer together with us. I also hope that you tell others to join so that this group can grow. If you really enjoy playing soccer with this group, I ask if it is possible, that you chip in towards this group to pay for its membership. All excess funds will be used to pay for equipment that will be greatly utilized for this group, such as soccer balls, pinnies, cones, and even smaller goals. Thank you and I hope to see you on the field!

Upcoming events (4+)

Saturday Soccer (5:30 PM, Shakerag Park)

Needs a location

Some rules to be followed by all participants:

• All skill levels welcome.

• PLEASE RSVP. If you are planning to come please rsvp so that everyone knows how many people are coming. We will try to cap games at max 10 a side if there are less than 26 people. If more than 26 people show up we will have two separate games. If you rsvp you will be allowed to join the first game, otherwise you will have to wait to join the second game. First priority will always be given to the people who rsvp.

• Please try to wear either dark or light colored shirts. (Bring both so that it's easy to make even teams)

• Please respect the etiquette for soccer. Once you missed the goal from a shot, pass, header, etc. Go and grab the ball to get it back in play. YOU KICK, YOU CHASE.

• If you have a ball or a ball pump, please carry it so we always have a ball to play.

• If joining the game after it has started please count the people on both teams before jumping in. Try to join the team with fewer people if the teams are uneven, else join either team.

• NO SLIDE TACKLING.

We follow a simple rule of courtesy in this group: if you kick the ball off the field, you chase it down. Thanks!

Finally, each player has an obligation to treat his fellow players respectfully. If you can't be respectful, you can't play with us.
