What we're about
Upcoming events (5+)
Also, moved to National Mall. Backup location is the Boy Scout Memorial like last week. No cleats. Sorry. We are allowed to wear turf cleats or regular shoes, but not cleats. Here's an example of what is allowed: https://www.soccercorner.com/p-Nike-Tiempo-Legacy-Soccer-Turf-Shoes-Black-Wh-p/st-ni631517-010.htm . Bring two shirts: one white tee shirt and a dark shirt. (Not just a non-white shirt.) You will want change your shirt to join the side the organizer says you should go onto, but it is also ok to just join the side with the fewer players without asking. If you see someone, don't be shy to ask if they are there for the game. If it is your first time, try bringing a soccer ball since that is the universal language you are down to play any soccer pickup. We'll meet in the Boy Scout Memorial unless we get an update on the fields at the National Mall. We may move over to the Ellipse proper depending on size. Rules: Be cool (its a pickup soccer game, no need to get angry or take people out) Have sportsmanship (if the sides are a little out of balance in numbers, but the play is good, its alright) When the group gets to 30+, then we'll think about splitting when its natural and easy. Until then, lets just play! If you call for a new game to be started and one to be capped, then you will be asked to play in the new game to get them up to playing numbers We'll play until the lights go on or we can't see the ball Bring water! Parking: unlike the Ellipse, there is a lot of parking near the south side of the mall. Metro and biking is a good option too.
