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!
WINTER SCHEDULE (Dec - Feb)
During the colder months we play two times a week on the weekends. As it starts to warm up, we'll add Tuesdays/Thursdays back into the mix.
Saturday @10:30am - Riverside Park (108th and West End - Big Soccer Field) Sunday @12:30pm - Riverside Park (108th and West End - Big Soccer Field)
There are two ways to stay in touch outside of Meetup.com:
It's important to RSVP so that you can get updates through the Meetup app. Also PLEASE If you have a USAU membership please bring it, as well as both a dark shirt and a light shirt so that it helps distinguish teams.
See you soon!

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).
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. You'll enter the park from the west side at 100th street, where you will "Soccer Field #3" located between Softball Fields #4 & #5.
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.
SPRING/SUMMER (Mar - Aug)
As the city warms up we play four times a week. We use Riverside Park on Tuesdays/Thursdays and Morningside Park for the weekend games.
There are four days that we play:
- Saturdays at 10am, Morningside Park (110th and Manhattan Ave) - Sundays at 12pm, Morningside Park (110th and Manhattan Ave) - Tuesdays at 6pm, Riverside Park (103rd and West End - Where we can!) - Thursdays at 6pm, Riverside Park (103rd and West End - Where we can!)
FALL (Sep - Nov)
This is a busy time at the fields, so pay attention to messages on the Meetup page and announcements.
There are four days that we play:
- Saturdays at 10am, Riverside Park (108th and West End - Big Soccer Field) - Sundays at 1pm, Riverside Park (108th and West End - Big Soccer Field) - Tuesdays/Thursdays at 6pm games don't last long due to decreasing sunlight.
