Exceptional turf field located 2-blocks from L'Enfant, Federal Center, and Waterfront Metros. Street parking available. Dark Shirt - Light Shirt. Players provide jerseys, goals. Coed play, all ages. Bring a ball. Join us.

Play description: 5v5, lasting 5 minutes or 2-scores, whichever occurs first. No offsides; no throw-ins; no corner kicks; small goals; fast play. Playground location requires honest play & best behavior: shooters retrieve misses, fouls-called honored, no slide tackling. Winning team plays on; losing team sits. Tie games are settled "rock-paper-scissor".

Meetup Managers may institute wristbands for play to online RSVPs and sequential arrivals thereafter. RSVPs expire 20 minutes after event begins.

Manager decisions final: no altercations, no drinking, smoking and no public restroom facilities. Violations prompt field dismissal.

Dynasty Rule: no winning team plays more than three in a row.
Seated Rule: no player sits more than two in a row.
Tie Game Rule: if 18 or more players present, both teams sit.
On-Time Rule: Waitlists play until RSVPs show. RSVPs honored.
6v6 Rule: rosters expand ONLY when no substitutes available.

RSVP opens 2 days before, and close 2 hours before, the meetup.

"This is by far the best, most skilled pickup soccer game in the city. The limited field dimensions, proximity of play and demand for skill & quick decisions make it real hard to hide bad soccer at this field. Players at Amidon already have or quickly develop high soccer IQs."
