We're off to our third season of Over 50 kick around soccer for the fall season. For the remainder of August and all of September we'll play on Tuesday nights at Montgomery Park in the city at 6 pm. Montgomery is the big park northeast of the intersection of San Mateo and Comanche..
Simply put, it's pickup soccer. We're registering players, not teams. If you're 50, that's all that matters. If you know people 50 or older who have not been in ASL recently, we don't have them in the current data base so it would help our numbers if you'll pass this along. We're including men and women in this, so if there aren't enough women to separate out to their own thing, we'll just play as on big happy family.
Pickup soccer doesn't need referees, just a game manager and we'll have someone at the complex to check that you've completed your liability waiver and paid your fee ($25 for 8 games). Instead of player passcards, our game manager will check to see that you're on the master roster and you show picture ID and that's it. People can split up and we'll have pinnies to use and then everyone can retire to the bar to tell stories of grandeur about how you got cheated out of playing in the World Cup.
Registering is simple. You tell us you want to play, we have a master team set up that will serve as the roster. E mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com and we add your player profile in and if you've got an email address in your player profile, you can pay your $25 online and you're done, just like Sunday soccer. You'll be able to see who has signed up simply by going to the team page. The team page is in the Teams link on the website and Fall 2019 Wednesday night soccer so you can see who's playing. Since we're entering the fall season, everyone needs to submit their annual online liability waiver. People new who are starting will need to set up a player profile and do the waiver. We'll help with that.
While it's informal, it's real soccer so you need the proper equipment including shinguards and you don't wear jewelry per the FIFA rules.
