Details, details ...

We run a good-natured, relatively informal, adult, co-ed soccer game in Beacon. If you are interested, email me at: beaconfootie (at) gmail (dot) com 

If you are interested in finding other games, please look in the Discussion section below, in the discussion called "Other games and leagues in the area ..."



Everyone who plays practices the golden rule. There are no slide tackles, no high kicking, and zero tolerance on any kind of hard foul.



This is an adults-only game. The majority of players are in their 30s and 40s. Most have some experience playing in school, high school, and/or college, and are comfortable with the rules and basics of the game. But the games are inclusive, regardless of experience or fitness level.

For outdoor, you will probably want soccer cleats. When games get up to 7 v 7 and above, they can get more competitive, and you may also find you want shinguards as well.

This weekend's game is at 2pm because of the weather. Also, I just posted about an alternate game on SUNDAY mornings in the Discussions group. It's at 9:30am, and is run by one of the other players in our game - Maury.

Hey Sam


There will be a game every Saturday @ 9am through the summer, weather permitting.  Exceptions come up, like this weekend (when there's a tournament), or holidays.  I don't always have the next game posted here.  Please email me if you want to get the weekly email reminder about the next upcoming game.

Granger - of course it's fine if tomorrow is your first time.  We usually play for 90 minutes with a break, so will be done by 11 tomorrow, but people leave early all the time - its totally fine.
