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!

Saturday Soccer

Shakerag Park

NOTE: Limit is 22 people, HOWEVER if there are at least 28 people (6+ on the wait list) then those on the wait list may come so we can make two games. If there is enough for two games, then try to show up on time or you may end up waiting until there is enough for a second game (even if you RSVP'd before those on the wait list). ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Please feel free to join us and bring friends if you'd like. I'll provide soccer goals, pinnies, and soccer balls. Cleats not required but recommended especially if field is wet. Please try to RSVP if you plan to go so we can get a head count. Also, when there is enough people (14+) we usually play for 2-3 hours so feel free to join in a little late if you'd like.
