For Sunday May 26th: We're moving to Riverside 108th st, as squatters (but there's no WSSL youth soccer this weekend). If you can come early to claim space and shoo away pickup players, please do!
This is one of three sites/listservs that promotes weekly games that have been going on for many many years. Stall counts are used on occasion, cleats are optional, boundaries are flexible, and all skill levels are welcome!
SPRING/SUMMER SCHEDULE (Apr - Oct)
During the warmer months we play four times a week. Due to competing with soccer we are doing Morningside on weekends.
Tuesday/Thursday @5:30pm - Riverside Park (108th Street Fields)
Saturday @12:00pm - Morningside Park
Sunday @12:00pm - Morningside Park
WINTER SCHEDULE (Nov - Mar)
In the winter (daylight savings) we play only on weekends. Riverside is our main, Morningside is our backup.
Saturday @12:00pm: Riverside Park (108th st field)
Sunday @12:00pm: Riverside Park (108th st field if possible, 103rd otherwise)
It's important to RSVP so that you can get updates through the Meetup app - it's common to have to move the game due to field space issues.
Please bring both a dark shirt and a light shirt so that it helps distinguish teams.
See you soon!
CENTRAL PARK NORTH MEADOW
Sometimes we play in the middle of Central Park at North Meadow. Getting there is pretty easy, with your choice of either 96th or 103rd street C train. Aim for Soccer Field 6 (near softball field 12) on the south-east corner of North Meadow - so more towards 5th ave, and more towards 97th st. Other times we may use Field 2, which is closer to the west side.
The Morningside location is at the corner of 110th Street and Manhattan Avenue. The best way to get there is to take the C local (B on weekdays) to 110th Street. You can also take the 1 train to 110th street at Broadway and then walk East. We will play at the South end of the baseball field parallel to 110th street so that we're not in the way of the baseball/softball games. Riverside will be our backup if for some reason we need to change locations.
The Riverside location is all the way West just off the water between 102nd and 108th Streets. You can only enter the park at 103rd and 108th. The best way to get there is to take the 1 local to 103rd Street. Walk West until you see an entrance that takes you down to the fields through the park. After walking down the steps from the street, you will see a path that goes left and another that goes right. Walk down the left path until you see a stone wall and stairs that go down to the fields. From South to North there will be one small soccer field surrounded by a track (red 'A' on map), another field with two softball fields (closer to 103rd/104th st) and another that is a giant soccer field (closer to 106th st). After walking down the steps, you will see the small Soccer field on your left. Start from this Southern-most field and walk North on the path to find our game. If you see no one, the meeting spot is the South side of the large soccer field. This spot is identified on the map below, a small square with little dots around it. On days when we can't find space at Riverside, we will move the game to Morningside Park (West 110th St and Manhattan Ave).
