This year the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy is offering participation in youth and adult soccer leagues which will use the new fields on Pier 5 (see photo). The youth leagues, divided into three levels by age, will have Saturday practice and games from March 2 through May 18, and optional Wednesday practices (presumably scheduled after school hours) from March 6 through May 15. Registration is $25 per child; registrants will be assigned to co-ed teams. The adult league (18 years and up) will consist of men’s and co-ed divisions (a co-ed team must have at least two women; theoretically, it could be all women), and will play games in a six versus six format (five plus a goalie) limited to fifty minutes. Games will be on Wednesday evenings from March 6 through May 29, with start times from 7:00 to 11:00 p.m. Registration is $130 for an individual, or $1,300 for a team of up to twelve. More details on soccer leagues are here.
The Conservancy also plans to offer volleyball leagues, an “oasis camp” (we wonder), a kayak camp (self-explanatory), and swim clinics. More details on these will be available later. Stay tuned.
