We are pickup soccer enthusiasts who meet at Intown Atlanta fields to play organized pickup soccer games every day.
The Atlanta Sons of Pitches FC Meetup is used primarily to organize our pickup soccer sessions, which are split into three simultaneous games at full capacity. We reserve turf and grass fields specifically for pickup soccer, provide clean pinnies to distinguish teams, and have organizers on hand to keep things fun and friendly for both novice and competitive players! All we ask from you is to honor your RSVP commitments (please read our Attendance and No Show Policy before RSVPing "Yes" to events), and to bring a positive attitude and small fee per session to cover the costs of fields, lights, organizers, and laundry.
Our pickup games are a great way to get to know our club better. Whether you're a pro, or someone who hasn't touched the ball in decades, we welcome you to participate. The rules below are a way of ensuring our pickup games stay fun and friendly for everyone.
Each pitch has a 6' x 12' goal, although limited RSVP games may use smaller goals.
The full length of the field is typically divided into 3 pitches.
• The first rule of Sons of Pitches FC is, YOU TALK ABOUT SONS OF PITCHES FC! Tell a friend to join our Meetup and play too.
• No running or warming up on the track.
• Positive attitudes only.
• Call your own fouls, and no one else’s. No proxy wars; that's how world wars start.
• If someone calls a foul, you must respect the call.
• Kick-in from the sides instead of throw-ins.
• No slide tackling.
• No corner kicks.
• Last player back (or a designated keeper) may use their hands in front of the goal, if the goal is at least 6' x 12' size.
Limited RSVP sessions usually consist of one pitch and three teams, with one team rotating off every 10 minutes.
Pickup sessions utilizing all three pitches will rotate evenly based on how many teams are waiting to play. At maximum session capacity, each field will only rotate up to three teams max (one team rotates off every 10 minutes), so players will play 20 minutes at a time, then wait 10 minutes, etc.
