Pick Up & Friday Night Lights

Friday Night Lights Monthly Pickup

In addition we also provide special Friday Night Lights pick up once per month (usually the last Friday) during the warmer months only.  For 2015 we are once again playing at Bundy Field which is located at 429 O St NW. There is street parking available. The field is FieldTurf and lighted. The event is free for FTSC members but there is a $5 fee for non-members to help cover field rental costs. A group typically goes out to dinner afterwards. Dates will be posted on the calendar and announcements will be made on the homepage to let you know when these Friday night events are happening.


Sunday Pickup in West Potomac Park

Pick up play near the National Mall is FTSC’s enduring, baseline activity. Sunday pick up happens year-round. Pick-up play is open to people of all genders, skill levels and orientations.  Bring a dark colored shirt AND a white shirt as teams are divided in that manner. No gray and no pastel color shirts please!  Cleats and shin guards are strongly suggested.

Pick Up Rules

Sundays: 9:00-11:00 AM

Wednesdays: discontinued for now. If you are looking to play on Wednesdays or other weeknights try the Ellipse which usually has some good groups playing.

Here is a map with the field location near the MLK Memorial on Ohio Dr.
Look for the Yellow or Orange pop-up goals.

Sunday pick up happens year-round except in extreme weather conditions

If there are other events (races, for example) using our regular location, our backup spot will be the Washington Monument Grounds along the 17th St side opposite the WWII Memorial. So look for us there or at times farther down by the FDR Memorial (see map).
