Once again, there is SOCCER at the meeting! Come play or watch, you'll have fun either way (and you need a reason to get up early)!
Here are the details:
The field is on the fairway at the first hole of the Pusch Ridge Golf Course, which is not being used and is available to us.
The best option for parking is the lot near the Last Territory area of the Hilton. There is also a lot on the hill above the field by the tennis courts.
We play Tuesday - Thursday, 6:30am - 7:30am each day.
We mark the playing area with chalk lines and use pop up small goals.
We provide soccer balls, including desert-friendly, puncture-proof OneWorld balls.
We divide up into multiple teams and play small-sided games simultaneously (no goalies, free substitution).
If we have more than 2 teams, we do a round robin of 20 minute games each day.
If scores are too lop-sided, and because not everyone comes every day, we re-balance the teams from one day to the next. No slide tackles permitted.
Please bring red, white, and blue t-shirts. Cleats or turf shoes are both permitted and recommended. Flat tennis shoes are not recommended (it can be a bit wet early on and you'll slip).
Water cooler and cups are provided.
Shower facilities are available for those not staying at the hotel.
Contact Jeff Kantor if you want to play!
