The 10 Rules of Soccer as a Kid

10 rules of soccer as a kid

10 Rules of Soccer as a Kid

  1. The fattest one is always the goalkeeper.
  2. The person who’s ball it is decides who plays.
  3. Penalties are only awarded if injured player swears a lot.
  4. The match only ends when everyone is tired.
  5. No matter how many you are winning by the winner is always determined by “next goal wins.”
  6. No referee.
  7. If nobody has a ball, a plastic bottle will do.
  8. If you are picked last, you have no hope in life.
  9. Getting a soccer ball stuck under a car is the most stressful part of life.
  10. When the owner of the balls gets pissed off, it’s game over.

Summer Pick-up Soccer is Back! Near Lancaster

Summer pick-up is back at Foundation Fields at the Overlook complex in Manheim Township, near Lancaster

Tuesdays and Thursdays 6-Dark

Play starts tonight 6pm and goes until dark, or until no one can run anymore. Which ever comes first. This is not an organized event, so show up, bring a white and a dark shirt, organize yourselves into teams and have fun!

Tuesdays: Family
Thursdays: Adult men (and competitive women).

The fields are offered at no charge to us by the Manheim Township Soccer Club. So please don’t play when the fields are wet, so we don’t tear up the fields.

In addition because we want to keep it friendly and safe for everyone, we only have a couple of requests.

  • No slide tackles
  • And please wear the proper protective gear

Check out the map below for directions.

 Hope to see lots of you there!

Adult Pickup Thursday, September 30 @ 5:30 til Dark – Ephrata Twp. field

We received this message from Barry Christ Today:

I have the Ephrata Twp. field reserved for Thursday, Sept. 30 for Over-50, but I’d like to invite everyone for pickup, as the Over-50 league will not be playing a game that night. Reserved from 5:30 ’til dark (about 7:30).

Directions: 222 to 322 exit (at Walmart). Go west toward Ephrata for 1 mile to Bethany Rd. and turn left. Go 1/4 mile to 1st stop sign, which is Fulton St. Turn left and go 1/3 mile to park on the left. It’s a great field, very wide, smooth, and has nice grass. We need lots of legs to cover this big field.

Thanks Barry!
