East Bay Pick-Up Soccer (Co-Ed) EVERYBODY WELCOME!!!
San Leandro, CA
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...
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!!
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.
Volleyball. Training and Playing. Ocean Beach, San Francisco
San Francisco, CA
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE GROUP?
Training and Playing was started out of the need to have more volleyball training locations available to the average, adult volleyball player. Up until now if you wanted to learn and improve your volleyball skills you would normally look online under “Volleyball in the area”, join a group that seemed appealing, and hopefully be accepted and learn by playing.
You probably found that most groups are looking for players who are intermediate or better. The few groups where beginners are welcome would not really have training available.
With Training and Playing you can get around like minded players who are wanting to train and get to playing as soon as possible. Besides players what else do you need to play volleyball? Balls, nets, courts, training courts, training nets. These are all available upon request.
WHO SHOULD JOIN?
IF you are an intermediate or advanced level player who has not found a group of players who are looking to improve their skills, come join us and get better faster.
If you are a novice or beginner who really needs to work on the basics, come join us and quickly get to the next level of play.
If you are a student player who has found that going the club route is way too expensive, come check us out.
If you just want to play volleyball and are a fun and generous person you should definitely come. We’ve been looking for you!
WHAT WILL YOU DO AT THE EVENTS?
First you will set up a training court.
Although this is training the main drill you will do is pepper. Is there a right way to pepper? Check this out: https://youtu.be/k-gqpvFq4Gw
We use pepper to warm up. Here are 12 variations of pepper. Three variations can be done with a net but don’t require a net. bit.ly/3CNO1wl
We then go into cooperative play, using the training court, where we focus on improving one or several skills at a time. You’re essentially peppering or playing; you play every ball as much as possible. It is during this time that you ask the players you’re practicing with for help on improving and you also offer tips that can help your fellow players. Here’s a video of players doing cooperative play. https://youtu.be/0-LPqjsZrPM
Modesto Fun, Fitness, and Adventures
Thank you to everyone who participated in Modesto Women's Fun & Fitness in 2020!
For 2021, I am changing the name and focus of the group. While it will still be about fun and fitness, it will also be about new adventures and experiences. The group will also be open to women AND men. These activities will incorporate all three of those things--Fun, Fitness, and Adventure. I plan to research and schedule lots of fun outdoor activities and will welcome anyone's ideas going forward.
Group Changes for 2021:
Another change will be that members will now need to introduce and say a little bit about themselves upon joining. If you are already a member, please go in and answer these questions about yourself so that I and other group members can learn about you! In addition, while joining the group is free, in order to participate in future activities there will be yearly membership dues of $10 per person (a small price to pay for fun and meeting new people) in order to offset the cost of organizing the group. Additionally, I will be requiring everyone who joins to have a clear, recognizable photo of THEMSELVES in order to be a member. This is for several reasons, but the main ones are so I know what you look like when you join an event and can account for everyone that signed up, and most importantly, for all group members safety and security. If you join without posting a photo or use a one of a pet or one of your kids instead (not that we don't want to see them too!), I will kindly ask that you post a photo of YOU within seven days. If one is not posted by the deadline, you will be removed from the group. I will continue to look for free and low-cost activities, however, if there is a cost involved this will be posted on the event information, so please be sure to read it carefully and follow the instructions.
I look forward to meeting more of you in the coming year, experiencing new and enjoyable activities, and once COVID starts to settle down, participating in both indoor and outdoor activities. Safety precautions to decrease the likelihood of contracting the virus will always be of utmost importance!

East Bay Golf Group
East Bay Golf Group Meetup
This (Beginner & Intermediate) Meetup group is to have fun and meet new people while playing golf. If you are looking to play golf in a relaxed atmosphere, then this is that type of group. You may be a beginner, or you may have played before, it doesn’t matter. Most members are beginner to intermediate golfers.
The goal is to get outside, play and hopefully improve our game a little bit. We will play at various courses around the East Bay Area. Courses scheduled will be typically 9-hole and some 18-hole courses, often doing scramble to make things a little easier. Feel free to suggest courses for future meetups.
All that's asked is that you show up ready to play when you say you will, repeat no-shows can be kicked from the group. Also, please be familiar with basic etiquette and rules of golf, including pace of play. Please be aware that no instruction or equipment is provided.
And last, but not least, if the course played at has got a bar then you can usually find group members there cooling off with a drink after the round!

Just Fore Fun Roseville Women's Golf Group
We are a group of awesome women who are in various stages of learning to play golf. We usually play 9 Holes but may sometimes go for 18. This is a no pressure group; beginners are welcome. Sacrifices to the water gods are expected. All we ask is that you show up ready to play when you say you will. Over 21 and under 105. Dues $10 a year to help cover expenses. You will find more than just women to play golf with; you will find true friends. We play Indian Creek on Tuesday and we sometimes play on Thursdays and Sundays.
We play "Ready Golf". This keeps the game moving. Basically this means that you should always be ready as soon as possible for your next shot and whoever is ready should go ahead and hit or putt even if they are not the farthest from the hole. You don't have to wait for everyone to get on the green to putt. Of course safety is important so don't go out in front of someone to hit your ball (that is one time you do wait). Two people on opposite sides of the fairway can hit at the same time unless they are both chipping toward the hole. Use common sense. The goal is to keep a good pace but not cause anyone to feel rushed or stressed.
We just want to have fun.
Indian Creek Country Club - A token for a small bucket of balls. Not good on 1/2 off days.
