What is "Street Soccer"...

Street soccer, pick-up game, sandlot soccer or a kick-about whatever title you give to the format the idea is to give the game of soccer back to the players. Past generations learned to play the game on their own with other kids in the neighborhood or at school in these kid organized games. It’s difficult today for youngsters to have a pick-up game since the streets have too many cars, the sandlot is now a shopping center and parents are reluctant, with good cause, to let their child go blocks away from home to play in a pickup game on his or her own.

Georgia Rush will provide the fields and supervision. Staff will be on site for safety and general supervision, but otherwise it is all up to the players to organize the games. The coaching staff will be on hand for any serious injuries and any severe discipline problems and to provide the game equipment and to let the players know when each game segment starts and stops. The players solve disputes, the players make their own subs, the staff keeps time.

Street soccer provides the possibility of mixing playing levels, genders and age groups. It can be used to assist with player development, player identification and player selection. Mostly it is a chance for players to play the game for the FUN of the game.

A typical at night of street soccer at Georgia Rush would be 5-6 matches in an hour with teams of 3 vs 3 or 4 vs 4 with no goal keepers
