Let's face it. These things are true. Staying in shape get's harder and harder. Meeting new friends on a regular basis seems impossible the older we get. Getting out of our lives and decompressing for a few hours a week, is nearly impossible. So I suggest a regularly scheduled get together JUST FOR FUN! Stay tuned as we'll rotate this event near you for the next one.
Let's meet for a very casual soccer get together. IMPORTANT!
*Play at your own pace * Non-competitive * Just for fun * Everyone wins. *No minimum attendance. Join us when you can
Guidelines: Consider this more a kick around than a game. More for the exercise and social aspect. Start and stop as you see fit. We'll take breaks often and get to know each other. This low impact cardio will get you moving and give you that work out you missed during the week. There will be no keeping score. Play at your own pace means just that. Start and stop as you like, cheer from the side lines. Or, simply hang out have some fun. After let's enjoy a BYO picnic and get to know each other. Bring your chairs, blankets and snacks.
