NYFM Footvolley fun Training and Pickup Game

Guys, good news! 

We will be playing on Governor's Island Beach Club on Saturday Mornings. I spoke with the Beach Club manager this weekend and everything seems fine for us to use the court for the morning. I am very excited with this place,  they have bathrooms, food, we can have a beer after the game, chairs, tables and couches, and you can wait for your turn in the court, playing Altinha... like... this link http://fusion.net/Modern_Life/video/altinha-unofficial-sport-brazil-6469 or... this  other link http://vimeo.com/60070418 or playing Foosball on their 5 foosball tables, it is super cool! .... Ah! another thing, not this weekend but the next one they will start to have afternoon projection of the World Cup matches which means we will be able to play in the morning and decompress on a drink seeing a match in a gigantic screen on the PM...

Back on track here, Footvolley, in Brazil, is played mostly in your bathing suit but we are in NY so bring some beach volleyball clothes i.e. shorts and a shirt. We will have a training before playing so everyone get acquainted with basic moves and basic touches of the sport.  

I will recommend you all investing in a ankle guard, the cheapest ones made of cotton and without a padding, this is just for your feet to get accustomed on kicking the ball since all balls I will be bringing are brand new and they can be hard on your feet's skin in this beginning. 

Let me know if you have any questions, concerns, comments or ad-on ideas for the meet up.

See you at the court!
