Full Field Team ROSTERS generally consist of 18 full time members and 4 on-call members with a maximum total roster of 22 (mandated by the league).
On-call subs are considered part of the team rosters. They are welcome at all training sessions and club functions.
They are typically called on to play when there are fewer than 13 or 14 roster players available for league games.
Currently, we are most in need of defenders, backup goalkeepers who play the field, starting goalkeepers, and midfielders.
However, our invitation to join the team will be based on a variety of factors, including
a common philosophy in team play.
Teams typically play home games in Manhattan, though on occasion there is a need to use league provided fields. Away games are typically accessible via public transport, though on occasion there is a need to carpool or make other arrangements. During the season,
teams also compete in a State Cup Tournament, which is a single elimination format with
games that on occasion take us further away from the city.
League games are played on Sundays with kick off anytime between 8am and 9pm.
Home games are typically Sunday evenings at Manhattan’s Pier 40
which is easily accessible via public transport.
Away games (and occasional home games) take place on Sunday mornings or afternoons on various fields primarily in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens.
Though we do occasionally travel to fields in Westchester, Staten Island and New Jersey.
NYC Sirens, Gotham Argo and Argo Silver generally train in the spring and fall on Tuesday nights at Chelsea Waterside Park 8:15pm - 10pm (23rd street @ 11th Avenue) or 9:45pm - 11:30pm at Pier 40 (west houston and west side highway)
ALTERNATING time and location between these two fields.
Fall season runs from September through mid-December
Spring season runs March to June.
Fees vary between $150 - $300 twice a year (each Fall and Spring season) depending on sponsorship, home fields and various team / club costs.
The teams have bar sponsors which we visit after most home games and training sessions.
We will hold closed tryout sessions/scrimmages.
Due to limited permit space, we need to limit the number of individuals participating in each session, so please be sure to confirm your intention to attend sessions so you are sure to be on the list of invited participants.
We believe that social interaction and support lends a level of team spirit that aids in the competitive journey to team success.
With strong women’s, men’s and coed teams we schedule frequent social mixers and club fundraisers. We do our best to secure a bar sponsor for each team and spend time after games and training sessions "supporting" our sponsors.
In terms of an overall philosophy and approach for this club.
The focus of the NYC Soccer Collective is to enjoy playing together,
playing the game as good sportsmen and women, giving everyone on the
team the opportunity to play and develop as a team member, and, in general,
focusing on a positive approach to training, winning, and even losing. A copy of
our club’s mission statement and player agreement, which must be signed by
everyone that decides to join the team as a full or on-call roster member,
includes a commitment to our club philosophy.
