What is Free Play?

Free Play is exactly as it sounds. Soccer that encourages freedom of play and creativity and decision-making while being free of delibriate coaching and training structure. Players and soccer fans alike gather within their communities across the world to play these loosely organized pick-up games. They express their love for the game and learn from the game simetanouesly. Autonomy and leadership skills are called upon through all ages as participants collectively manage their own games, rules and teams while creating friendly but competitive environments. Most importantly, Free Play is a fun way to enjoy and learn soccer!
