Are you interested in playing soccer but: - you've never touched a ball before? - you're experienced but just want to have fun with new people? - you're out of shape or worried you're too old to start? - you've been playing for years but still suck? If you answered yes to any question, seek no more, this group is for you!
The purpose of this group is to gather other beginners to form a team and play in the Pasadena adult soccer league ( http://www.adultsoccerleague.com ). The games are on Sundays and the next season starts mid-February. They have different divisions, we'd start in coed recreational division E (people who've never played) and work our way up.
We built two teams so far: one coed (5 women, 7 men) and one men's (13 men), with players aged between 20 and 50. The game format is 7v7 (with up to 4 male players / at least 3 female players in coed) so feel free to invite your family and friends! If many people are interested, we can always form more teams.
We're mostly looking to keep in shape while having fun and improving together, but we'd like new players to be able to commit to most games. The fee per team is $725 for the season (for the organizers, you can check the fee schedule on the website), so that would be about $60 per person if split among 12 players. In addition to the team registration fee for the season, you'll also need to get a $25 ID card with the league organizers valid for the year, which you can also use for other leagues and locations (for example, if you also want to play for another team on Mondays in Glendale), or for the next seasons in 2019. Besides the Sunday games, if other people are motivated, we could also meet up during the week and have practice games together.
** I won't be here this week but Carl will organize the event **
The season will have started for those involved in the league, but let's keep our Sunday morning meetups until we figure out a better schedule. We can separate the field in two sides, with normal games on one and light workout / practice drills on the other.
I'll bring a ball and a pair of goalkeeper gloves, let us know in the comments if you can come with equipment for everyone (goal posts, team bands, etc.). If you are not registered on one of our teams, you're still welcome to join as long as you're fine to share play time with everyone.
