Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy Adult Soccer League

Given recent updates with the City’s guidelines around athletic leagues in Parks, we are suspending soccer programming until further notice. As the situation surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak is dynamic and rapidly evolving, we intend to continue to monitor and adjust our plans accordingly.

The Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy is committed to providing recreational opportunities for our community. We still hope to be able to offer spring soccer league play even if that means an abbreviated and/or delayed season. Please check back for announcements as to when play can resume.

The Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy Adult Soccer League is a 6 v. 6 (5 and a goalkeeper) format, with both men’s and co-ed divisions. Games will be on Wednesday nights and will run for 10 weeks (start/end dates subject to change due to weather). All games will be 50 minutes long and will be played in hour intervals starting between 7 - 10 pm. Each team will play in all time slots.

Free Agents - will be assigned to a team of other individual Free Agent players. We cannot take requests for participants to be placed on the same team. The fee for a free agent is $165.

Teams - rosters can be up to 12 players, co-ed teams need a minimum of two female outfield players on the field at all times, and men’s teams can not include any female player. Team rosters and completed waivers are due before the beginning of the season. The fee for a team is $1650 (plus surcharge). When signing up you will pay a $500 deposit, with the balance due before the beginning of the season.

Glasses are not allowed on the field during the game, with the exception of safety glasses. A full list of Metro Soccer rules and regulations can be found here.

VERY IMPORTANT: Deposits and registration fees are non-refundable and non-transferable, so please make sure you fully intend to participate. You are not entered for the season until you have received confirmation that your registration has been accepted. Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy does not carry medical insurance. Teams can purchase their own insurance here.
