Race and fitness goals

"Join forces. While many runners embrace the solitude of running, numerous studies highlight the benefits of working out with others, including greater satisfaction with exercise, increased motivation to set and reach goals, and greater consistency." <br> -- The Bliss List, Runner's World


"A race can give you something to focus on, an opportunity to be part of the running community, and a way to celebrate your training." -- Training Tips: Trail Running, Five Tips From Champion Ultrarunner Michael Wardian

Our motto: "Run, have fun, respect others, and respect nature!"

East Bay Pick-Up Soccer (Co-Ed) EVERYBODY WELCOME!!!

San Leandro, CA

East Bay Pick-Up Soccer (Co-Ed) EVERYBODY WELCOME!!!




Words from the group's founder: Daniel "Uber" Bäsel


I am looking to start up a casual pick up game here in the East Bay with some like minded people. To see if you are interested, let me introduce myself...

About me:

I was born and raised in Germany and played soccer from the age of 3 all the way through high school and then casually into my late 20's.

Now in my mid-30's and many pounds heavier, I am far from peak conditioning but would like to start casually playing soccer again on the weekends.

Ideally I would like to play either Saturday or Sunday mornings for about 2 hours in the San Leandro/Castro Valley/Hayward area at a location we can all agree on. I can provide the nets and cones as well.

EVERYBODY is welcome, but if you are a pro player and expect an ultra competitive setting this may not be for you.

I would love to build a little community of like minded soccer fans from around the world to spend a few hours with each week kicking the ball around!

If you are interested, please join this group and i will get in contact with you!!

RULES:

Here are a few rules to follow when deciding to join us for a friendly pick-up game. most of these are pretty "common sense" but I still think it is a good idea to lay them out so everyone knows what to expect (Please note that breaking these rules will eventually result in a ban from this group):

1) "The Golden Rule": We are all here to have fun, get a little exercise in and walk away happy and most importantly healthy. Slide tackling/Body Checking is ABSOLUTELY NOT permitted ANYTIME and doing so will result in a warning as well as a free kick for the other team. 

2) "Everybody's Game" : This is a MeetUp group for EVERYONE who would like to come and play. Young and old, male or female, skilled or brand new to the game of soccer. Please treat it as such. If you are a skilled player with lots of experience, try to involve the players who may be new to the game as good as you can.

3) "Foul Language" : We are all adults in this group and I sure have a potty mouth at times. Just a few things to keep in mind though. Cursing or directing foul language at another player is NOT TOLERATED and will result in a warning. If the game angers you to the point where you have to direct foul language at another player, perhaps this is not the meetup for you.

4)"Goalies" : Most people don't like to play goalie but if we all share the duty of playing goalie, it becomes less of a hassle for everyone. Please volunteer to play goalie rather than having to be asked to.

All liability questions must be answered with, "Yes." for your acceptance into the group. 

HIKERS PLEASE NOTE  :

The majority of the hikes that are currently posted are rated MODERATE DIFFICULTY - occasionally we will post some easier and sometimes if the group requests , some a little harder , maybe longer . By signing up to hike / attend our weekly hiking events you should have some Hiking experience with being able to keep up with the group (22-25 min per mile) .

Diablo Valley Homeschool Group

Concord, CA

Diablo Valley Homeschool Group

***Please note that all prospective members must first meet with the organizers at an event within 30 days of applying before membership requests are approved. Once you submit your information to join you will be contacted by one of our organizers with upcoming event information to attend. Please make sure to check your Meetup Messages so you don't miss out!***

This community is focused on healthy, long lasting friendships and shared learning. The purpose of this group is to bring together families in the Contra Costa County and surrounding areas to build friendships, a support network, and cooperative learning opportunities.

Our Code of Conduct: Because we have a multi-age group, we remind all families, especially the older children, that they are influencing the younger crowd and so we ask that they act appropriately. Our group does not allow name-calling, or destructive/disrespectful behavior. We are building a community of friends and we expect that everyone act in a respectful way (this pertains to children and adults). 

Who are we? We are a group of families who share a passion for teaching our children through homeschooling. Our group is focused on school aged children (K-12) but younger siblings are welcome. We believe that children of all ages socializing together is a part of healthy development. 

What do we do? We have weekly park days in the Contra Costa County areas. Additionally we have monthly Mom's Night Out and sometimes extend that to Parents' Night Out and Family Fun Nights. It is our goal to have other activities such as nature walks, movie nights, even co-op learning groups available for families to participate in. Families may participate in any and all events, but are welcome to opt out of any that don't meet their families needs or interests. We do require that all families attend a MINIMUM of one park day per month. This ensures building strong, lasting friendships. 

When do we meet? We get together every Friday at 10 A.M. in the summer and 10:30 A.M. in the winter for weekly park day play groups. Additional events will be scheduled at various times.

Where do we meet? For most events we meet somewhere in the East and Central areas of Contra Costa County. We may occasionally schedule field trips that are outside of the county as well.

How can your family participate? Join our group! We are always looking to make great connections for children and parents - the more the merrier! Send us a request to join and tell us a little bit about your family. Then come to a meetup and start making connections! 

Membership fees - We do require all families to pay membership fees of $10 per family for the year. For all new incoming families, you will have a 3 month probationary period to check out our group, make new friendships and discover if our group is a good fit for your family. At the end of that 3 month period, new families are required to pay the membership dues to stay active members.

East Bay Afternoon Hikes

Berkeley, CA

East Bay Afternoon Hikes

I love hiking, but most Meetup adventures start a bit too early for my tastes. So, I started this group to help afternoon and evening hikers make afternoon and evening hiking friends!


HIKES


We mostly hike the central East Bay - Tilden, Briones, Sibley, Redwood Regional, the EBMUD trails, etc. At times, we may include urban routes, like Berkeley's hill paths.


We tend to stick to 5-7 miles at a normal walking pace. Our hikes are more about socializing than sweating, but we're on the move most of the time.


We'll occasionally do twilight hikes and finish after dark. It's amazing how much nature comes to life after the sun goes down!


At times - if the group is inclined - we may hike or sit in silence and just appreciate nature with all our senses. The Japanese call this "forest bathing," and it's a great way to slow down and reconnect with being human.


I've been hiking the Bay since the 80s. I work for myself and I don't have kids, so I have a comical amount of free time. I'm progressive and science-minded and tend to click best with kind, empathetic, self-aware people with a solid sense of humor. I dabble in bird-watching, plant identification, and astronomy, so if you're a fan of the natural sciences, all the better!


PREPARATION


Please be cool, personable, and genuinely looking to make platonic hiking friends. There are a billion Meetup groups for dating, pyramid schemes, lizard enthusiasts, shamanic healing, lizard enthusiast shamanic healing, etc.


Please arrive fully prepared to hike. At a minimum, that means layers, a hat, decent shoes, water, snacks, a map, and everything else you need to be fully self-sufficient. If there's anything you think the group should know about your fitness or health, please speak up!


COVID-19


This group is for vaccinated people only. If you're not vaccinated, not feeling well, or have been exposed to COVID-19 within the past two weeks, please don't attend.


GUESTS


For liability purposes, I can't allow guests unless they're willing and able to RSVP on the spot. That may be difficult or impossible given trailhead reception.


DOGS


I love dogs. Like, really love dogs. But many land management agencies have cold, dead hearts when it comes to fur-friends. Please review the entire route to determine whether Fido's OK. If so, please bring plenty of doggie-bags - there's a special place in hell for people who leave them on trails.


ASSUMPTION OF RISK AND WAIVER


We're potential friends who happen to hike together, not a tour group, and I'm not a tour guide, first responder, wilderness expert, doctor, or otherwise trained or qualified to lead hikes or help you if you get into trouble.


That's important, because hiking - and the drive to and from the trailhead - are risky. You could get seriously injured or killed in any number of ways, and rescue or medical aid could take hours to arrive.


By attending any hike, you acknowledge these risks and agree to accept them and any resulting damages or liability you may incur. You also agree that Meetup's Terms of Service extend to and protect me from such damages and liability to the full extent they protect Meetup.


CONCLUSION


Happy hiking, Afternoon Adventurers - I hope to see you out there!

RSVP for events that you have full intentions on attending. I understand that things happen in life, and some days you would have to bail.

2. Do not steal or intentionally damage other people's belongings.

Training and Education:

Beta Breakers Club have partnered with SAANO Adventures who can readily provide professional guidance and training relating to different varieties of climbing disciplines from anchor building to alpine climbing. Contact Max Stewart (can be found in member directory) for further information. Additional training may be available from the Outdoor Adventure Club run by Richard Bothwell.
