New co-ed soccer league starting in the neighborhood

Just heard about a new soccer league in the neighborhood, just in time for the World Cup! Hopefully Koman Coulibaly won't be reffing.
There is still opportunity to sign up for the FTSC Summer of Freedom League presented by DC Councilmember Jim Graham! The format is 9v9 coed and games will be on Tuesday nights in July and August at Bell Field in Columbia Heights. This is the beautiful new turf pitch behind the Target complex.

Everyone registers as an individual and you will be placed on teams that are as evenly balanced as possible.You can request to play with your friend/significant other, but the idea is to meet new people while enjoying the beautiful game. We expect players of all stripes, from former college stars to those who are relatively new to the game, and everyone in between. The vibe we are going for is friendly, social, and low key. Time spent after the game at CommonWealth Gastropub will be just as important as time spent on the field.

The league is organized by Federal Triangles Soccer Club, whose membership includes lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered players and our straight friends. Whatever your background or orientation, you are very welcome to play in our league. More information and registration can be found here.

Do it - be part of the Summer of Freedom!
