Opportunities available for adults in the Hopewell Valley area.

All teams are co-ed. If you are interested in participating, or require further information, please email the appropriate contact below. Please note, that due to limited space you cannot be guaranteed a place on the teams in the organized leagues.
Current Organized Leagues:
Currently, there are over-30, over-45 and over-55 teams participating in the BASC (Bucks Adult Soccer Club) recreational league for Fall 2016. These operate Sunday mornings during the spring and fall, at Maple Point School and across the road in Core Creek Park, in Langhorne, PA. Note: for the over-45 and over-55 teams, for the BASC league teams, women can be of any adult age and goalkeepers can be up to 10 years below the age limit.
Also, there is an over-40 team participating in the Mercer County Amateur Masters Soccer League, which operates during the fall and spring on Wednesday or Thursday evenings, plus occasional Tuesdays.
Currently there is an over-45 league playing pick-up on the Twin Pines turf field, most Wednesdays, starting at 8pm.
From April through October informal outdoor pickup opportunities are available, on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, for all ages and skill levels. Last year, this occurred at 6:00 pm until either dusk, or, whenever the group decided to cease play. Location depends on the availability of fields. In the past, these have been held at the Twin Pines fields, on the Pennington-Lawrenceville Road, and Independence Park (at Stony Brook Elementary School). Please check back here for confirmation of location for this year. Currently, there is no fee to participate on the grass fields, but there is a fee per person per session for the Turf Field.
Sunday mornings, weather permitting, and when BASC leagues are not in session, there is a pickup opportunity either at Independence Park or Twin Pines. Currently, they are scheduled at Twin Pines, from 9am through 11am.
Also, look out for odd occasions through the year, that will be posted here, such as Black Friday (day after Thanksgiving), and Boxing Day (26th December), when a group will typically get together for pickup at Twin Pines or Independence Park.
