Welcome! This is a group for anyone around the Tacoma region interested in pickup soccer. These scrimmages are co-ed, recreational, and welcome adult players of all skill levels.

WHAT DO I BRING TO PICKUP GAMES? - Soccer balls are not provided, so bring one if you have one - A black (or close to) AND a white (or close to) shirt. Jerseys are not provided - Cleats/turf shoes - Shin guards are optional but play at your own risk - Water and snacks for yourself
WHO CAN JOIN THE GROUP? This is an adult co-ed recreational soccer group. Anyone 18+ and all skill levels.
IS THERE A FEE? No, it is free to join. However, contributions are welcome and helps with the Meetup's monthly fee for this group and park/field reservation fees when necessary. Any unbugeted and unused funds are donated to various youth sports organizations in Tacoma.
DO I NEED TO RSVP TO EVENTS? No, but as a courtesy to the organizer and other interested players we encourage members to RSVP. However, the RSVP count should not be assumed as it is rarely accurate to actual attendance. Also, we recommend, after a meetup, someone leave a comment on the event with the actual or estimated attendance. This helps players interested in future events gauge player turnout.
I'M LOOKING TO PLAY WITH INTERMEDIATE AND ADVANCED PLAYERS This group is merely a platform for people in Tacoma to set up pickup games in the community. If you'd like to leverage this group page to organize scrimmages for intermediate and advanced players, please contact Daniel Kang to help you get started. This also applies to those seeking a more beginners-oriented group. While our pickup games welcome players of all skill levels, encourage skilled players to to help others improve, and novice players to challenge themselves by playing with better players, we understand the want to practice and enjoy scrimmages at your respective skill levels.
I'D LIKE TO ORGANIZE A PICKUP GAME(S) THAT WORK WITH MY SCHEDULE OR CLOSER TO ME Please contact Daniel Kang to help you get started organizing pickup games that fit your schedule and location (as long as it is within a 15 mile radius of downtown Tacoma).
IS SLIDE TACKLING ALLOWED? Slide tackling is NOT allowed since these events are recreational and we’d like to maintain as safe an environment as possible while still having fun. Players may come from leagues and clubs that allow slide-tackling so, kindly, keep each other accountable.
