Description: FREE year-round pickup played under the lights on UNC's outdoor Hooker Fields. Our game dates and times vary depending on conflicts and field availability, so be sure to check our Facebook groups for information.
Note: For Summer 2018, we do not have lights. We play from 7:00pm to dusk, which is around 8:45pm. We expect to return to lighted games around mid-to-late August 2018.

We use facebook 'likes' as an informal RSVP system, but please know there are almost always more participants than likes. :)
Our games are coed, free and open to all. Our group is best characterized as semi-competitive: We play by rules, count stalls and call fouls but do not have specific stacks or defenses. We run hard and try to win, but never at the expense of the players!
What to bring: White & dark jerseys, cleats (or sneakers), water and good vibes. Invite friends too as our group is built entirely on word of mouth! :)
Things to know: The time listed is our arrival time. We typically start play within 15 minutes of the time listed. ... For substitution, defense (ie. players who score) is always given priority to stay on the line if they wish, no matter how far they are from the line. Offense (ie. players who get scored on) is just the first seven to reach the line.
Parking: The School of Government deck to the east is free after 5:30pm. The meter spaces along the north are free after 9:00pm. Both are free anytime on weekends. This is expected to change in fall 2019, so enjoy it while it lasts.
