Who Are We?
NY Coed Soccer was established in November 2004 with the debut season being hosted on a Friday night in Chelsea.

NY Coed provides a welcoming environment for you to develop and hone your skills, exercise and meet new people. We play all-year round in various Indoor and Outdoor locations in New York City.

We thank you for your interest in NY Coed and hope you enjoy your soccer wherever you play.
Where Do We Play?
Venues vary from season to season but Chelsea and Williamsburg are our primary locations. In addition we play regularly on the LES, Murray Hill and Randall's Island while Cobble Hill and Park Slope feature during our Winter Indoor season.

Exact field locations are confirmed at the opening of registration.
General Registration Note
In order to register, you must be an NY Coed member and this means submitting a player profile here. Upon submission of a profile, you are added to the mailing list and will receive regular League notifications.

When signing into your profile, League availabilities can be viewed on the right-hand side of the page. In order to register, please click on the relevant link.

If you don't see a League listed, it means all slots have currently been assigned. Slots often become available as the season's start approaches, so it's worth checking the site on a regular basis.

Latest League Updates can also be found on Facebook and Twitter.
Registering as an Individual
Individuals are welcome to register. Players will form part of a "free agent" roster or be assigned to a team in need of additional players.

In the week prior to the opening game, players will receive the League Introductory email. This contains relevant information for the season ahead as well as the names and e-mail addresses of all on the roster. Players will then have the opportunity to communicate directly with their teammates.

When viewing availabilities the Pink Symbol denotes Female slots being available with the Blue Symbol denoting Male. If either of the symbols do not appear, then it means all of those slots have currently been assigned.

Please note that Individual Male slots are often limited during the initial registration period. We're a Coed League and thus need to ensure that male/female registration is at a rate appropriate to the compiling of rosters. We do not wish to overload teams with male players.
Registering as a Small Group
Subject to availability, NY Coed makes the utmost effort to place friends on the same team.

When submitting your registration, please highlight your colleague's name in the section marked 'Special Instructions' of the payment section. You should also follow this up with a quick email confirming the request.

Please note that it is important to register promptly to ensure we can group everyone together. Individual slots cannot be held.
Registering as a Team: Captain's Note
Captains can register their team by making an Individual or a Team Payment. Upon the submission and processing of payment, Captains will then see a 'manage' button on their profile page. Clicking on the 'manage' button provides the Captain with a Captain's Invite.

When an Individual Payment is made, Captains will then be able to issue the Invite to their teammates. Players need to use this Invite to register and pay individually.

When a Team Payment is made, Captains will then be able to issue the Invite to their teammates. Players need to use the Invite to register though in this instance they won't be prompted to pay.

Payment of the Team Fee allows as many players as you wish on the official roster. The Team Fee must be made as a one-off payment at the time of registration.
Registering as a Team: Roster Requirements
Please register a team only if you are confident of having the required number of players.

For 5-a-side and 6-a-side Leagues this means a minimum of 9 registered players while for 7-a-side and 8-a-side the roster should be 11 registrants.

If you happen to fall short of 1 or 2 players, we can help by assigning free agents. We cannot, however, take on the responsibility for more players than that.

When roster requirements haven't been met, full refunds will be provided.
League Query: Cost of a Season
Costs vary and are dependent upon the League you register for. Typically the Individual Fee ranges from $140-$150 with the Team Fee being $1,350 - $1,600. Submission of a Team Fee allows as many players as you wish on the official roster.

Costs are based upon each team playing a minimum of 8 games during the season.
League Query: Length of a Season
A season typically lasts 10-12 weeks which includes the play-offs.

With Outdoor Leagues there is always the possibility of weather-related postponements. These games will be re-arranged, thus extending the duration of the season.
League Query: Duration of Games
Duration of games vary and are dependent upon the League you are playing in. Typically the Manhattan and the Indoor Leagues are 22-minute halves while Brooklyn and Randall's Island are 25 minutes per half.

Details are confirmed at the opening of registration.
League Query: Referee and the Rules
NY Coed provides the referees, all of whom are officially registered with the appropriate US Soccer organizations.

We ask players to remember that it's only recreational coed soccer. Yes, you want to win. But if it's a win-at-all-costs mentality then perhaps you're better suited to another League. Players should approach games in the correct manner: slide-tackling, for example, is not allowed.

General Rules for each League will be confirmed prior to the first game.
League Query: T-Shirts
NY Coed t-shirts are handed out to all participants at their opening game. We ask that players wear their official shirt each week.

If a team has a color preference, they should advise the League of their top three choices prior to the season's start. We'll ensure one of them is assigned.

Should a team wish to wear their own shirts, that's fine. We can still supply a set of NY Coed t-shirts to provide an alternate weekly option. If the team decides to wear their own set, please let us know in advance of the season's start in order we can assign colors to the rest of the League appropriately.
League Query: Footwear and Shinguards
Outdoor fields are turf. The ideal footwear, therefore, is turf shoes although flat indoor shoes, sneakers and molded cleats are fine. No metal cleats.

Indoor fields are either the rubberized or the traditional hardwood gym floor. Flat indoor soccer shoes and sneakers are appropriate.

We strongly encourage the wearing of shinguards - and our referees and field reps will highlight this at game time. Ultimately it is at the discretion of the individual but it does seem foolish not to take this simple precaution.
League Query: Inclement Weather
If you're scheduled to play and are concerned about the weather, you can check the game status by viewing our Twitter, Facebook or Home page or by calling the Weather Hotline at 347-534-6017.

A decision on whether to proceed with a scheduled kick-off will be dependent upon weather and field conditions.
