Charleston Social F.C.

Welcome to Charleston SC's adult pickup soccer club!

This is a COMPETITIVE GROUP. In a effort to prevent injuries, beginners and small children do not typically play in our sessions.

*****CHECKING-IN TO GAMES IS REQUIRED *****

IN DOING SO, YOU’LL ALSO SEE ANY LAST MINUTE FIELD CHANGES OR TIMING ADJUSTMENTS VIA THE EVENT CHAT FUNCTION.

Charleston SFC’s ONLY 3 Rules:

  1. No Goalie Defense. We play with very small pop up goals. These goals are 10 times smaller than full size goals that a goalkeeper would defend in a real match. Therefore the consensus to not have a pug goalkeeper has always been clear. A person positioned intentionally and directly in front of these goals during our games only eliminates most medium to long range shots, which is not fair to the opposing team and eliminates part of what make international football, football.

  2. OUTS. A ball clearly passing behind the goal line goes to the defending side to restart, UNLESS it was kicked out by the defense in an unsportsmanlike way on purpose. Outs on the sides do not exist. For fluidity’s sake, whoever gets the ball will continue play (aka - the hustle rule).

  3. Honor code dictates fowls, hand balls etcetera.

DIVIDING TEAMS. White shirts are typically paired up with shirtless players (aka skins). Dark shirts are typically all on one side. This said, PLEASE BRING A WHITE AND DARK SHIRT OPTION, avoiding light grey please!

SHOULDN’T NEED MENTIONING:

  1. Please don’t have conversations on the field. If you want to talk, step off. Some of us show up to play. The social bit happens before and after, so if you can’t multitask, that’s fine, just save the chat for after the game.

  2. THIS IS A TEAM SPORT: Pickup is for working on your skills, but no one wants ‘a wanna be’ show boat on their team. If you’re too good to pass the obvious pass, please contact your agent and get signed already. Dribbling is fun, but not for your teammates when there was no need to dribble in the first place.
    My rule: No shot or pass, now I can dribble.

  3. You lose the ball, you get it back. Same goes for - You miss your shot, you chase it. ‘You shag it, you bag it!’

Please leave 10 feet of space open around the pop up goals. Ideally, there are no positions or goal keeping with small-goal pickup. When Marking/Defending an opponent from outside of this unmarked area, you can of course continue defending into the goal space. The key is for defending to occur first, and not to have a player simply waiting to block shots directly in front of goal. This eliminates long range shots entirely from our pickup game. Think about basketball without three point shots. A variety of goals, long range and close, as well as being able to score more often makes our games more fun.
