Paul van Leynseele writes to tell us about a weekly pick-up soccer scrimmage starting this Saturday, October 1, from 9-11 a.m. at Jefferson Park. (You can also meet earlier at The Station, 2533 16th Ave. S., between 8-8:50 a.m.)

Paul says:

“This is pick-up soccer. Emphasis is on low-contact (no slide tackling), inclusive play (lots of passing, no ball hogs), getting some exercise, but still being able to get up and go to work on Monday. Teenage kids are welcome, if they can live with the pace/tone of the game; pre-teens probably aren’t a good fit (unless an adult wants to facilitate a separate kid scrimmage).

“Teams are formed on the fly. Please bring a white shirt and a dark shirt so it’s easy to tell teams apart. If you have a ball, please bring it.”
