What we’re about


We are a laid-back community soccer pickup group. Everyone is welcome; our level of play is generally intermediate to advanced. We generally play 10 v 10 (don't worry, it's half field so you won't have to run your buns off). Everyone who plays must take a shift in hands-free goal, usually about 7-10 min.

Here are some of our group guidelines:
Bring a white and dark shirt to each meetup
No sliding tackles (please stay on your feet)
No studded cleats (flats or turf shoes only)
Good vibes and a positive attitude are a must - we play hard, but we all just want to have fun and get some exercise. It ain't that serious ;)

Attendance Policy: You must RSVP for the game in advance. You have the option of a +1, but you are responsible for yourself AND your guest. If you can't make it for any reason, update your RSVP to "not going' by 11 pm the night before the game. There are almost always folks on the waitlist hoping to play. Failure to appropriately RSVP will result in a 2-game ban. Failure to appropriately RSVP multiple times will get you booted from the group.
The only exceptions to our RSVP policy will be for inclement weather or medical emergencies. If something serious comes up we won't hold it against you - just please get in touch with the leadership team to explain.
Check the meetup app for updates the morning of the game - there may be cancellations in bad weather, and sometimes we have to move if permits have been issued for local schools. This is rare.

Here's what separates this group from many others:
• Chill, positive attitudes.
• No tolerance for aggressive behavior or for complaining about other people's play.
• Excellent equipment: good balls; square, sturdy goals (not flimsy, circular pop-ups).
• Freshly laundered, adult-size, pillowy soft bibs.
• The small fee we ask of each player (at least $3 per session) supports a great program that the Soccer Project has worked with since 2011: The Wishi Project.
We first helped The Wishi Project to construct part of a new school for a remote, rainforest village (Wishi) in Ecuador. Then we helped staff the school and supply it with such crucial resources as books and electricity. Soon thereafter, we contributed funds and our knowhow to the construction of an all-season soccer field at the school. We even bought them a horse ;)

Please remember to RSVP (and to change your RSVP if your plans change). If you sign up and don't show up (thereby causing the game to have uneven numbers, or worse - making it so that there aren't enough people for a game), then you'll be swiftly shown the exit!
And PLEASE TAKE NOTE: If you like to moan and wine at others because you don't think they've made a good enough pass, this isn't the game for you. This game is for those who want a positive, welcoming experience!
Hope to see you out there soon!
