Thank you for your interest in Peninsula Premier League! I’m very excited to get traction in just the last 3 days.
We have 18 players who have filled out the form and 10 who paid already! (stats below).
If we reach 42 paid players that can play with the final schedule, I’ll make the draft of teams, rent the fields, game schedule, and make it happen!
Below some information that folks have been asking:
I live in Redwood City and can rent RC fields. I’m meeting with the Facilities Director on 8/12 to find the fields that are available and which dates they have them. If we have the 42 players by 8/12 I will rent the fields on the spot.
Hopefully it aligns with the dates that we can play! If not, plan B is to go to a different nearby city and find a field we can rent.
Out of the 18 players, the days that work the most are:
Monday (4 can’t do this day), Tuesday (3 can’t do this day), Wednesday (4 can’t do this day), Saturday (3 can’t do this day).
All other days it’s 6+. Days that are def. off limits are Sunday, Friday.
We’ll know more once we have 40+ players. I’ll chose the day of the week with the most available players and refund those that cannot play those days.
The games will be 5v5 with 8’x4′ goals or 4’x6′. No goalies. I was tempted to do 4v4 but got a lot of pushback – science on why 4×4
Depending on the total number of players, I’ll max the team size to 7. This will help with substitutes and absent players from time to time.
Team will forfeit game if it has less than 4 players at game time.
La Liga format – each team plays the other team twice (home and away).
To add more fun and games, top 4 teams will play semifinals (if $$ allows, 2 legs).
If we get the 42 players, we can have 7 teams of 6 players (ideally we have substitutes).
That makes it 12 games per team guaranteed!
We’ll split a full field in 3 games. 3 games happen simultaneously.
Length of game: 2 halves of 12 minutes each, with 2 minute break — giving 4 minute buffer to make it 30 minutes.
Depending on field price, we might do 2 games a day or leave it at 1 game a day.
Following the games, we’ll have open pickup games with the meetup!
