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!

Friday Soccer (6 PM, Shakerag Park)

Shakerag Park

If we get lots of people, please be flexible and patient about starting new games! We'll stick to <11 a side. We follow a simple rule of courtesy in this group: if *you* kick the ball off the field, *you* chase it down. Thanks! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ **Bring a BLUE and a RED shirt**. We have pennies to split up teams, as well. Bring a ball if you've got one. I’ve got a pump, just ask if you need it. Please feel free to join us and bring friends if you'd like. 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.

Tuesday Pickup Soccer at Collins Hill

Collins Hill Park

NOTE: change of time to 6:30 starting 9/15/20. It's starting to get darker a little bit earlier now! We're playing Tuesday pickup soccer at Collins Hill Park, so come on out! Depending on how spaces are already being used, we will be playing at either the upper field by the lake or on the lower field by the entrance. During this period of time, games will be limited to no more than 10-12 people. If more show up, a new game can be started. If there will be inclement weather, we will still probably play unless lightning is anticipated. General rules: 1) No slide tackling/playing on the ground 2) Chase your own balls 3) Goals are "counted" if shots are past midfield, below the knee, and don't touch/go over the cones, but score doesn't really matter anyway 4) Kick-ins when ball goes out, no corner kicks unless the group wants them 5) Don't be a jerk, have fun, don't take it too seriously
