WHAT IS BUBBLE SOCCER?
Bubble soccer is a version of soccer that’s played in a bubble. Players wear a plastic bubble that covers their head to their thigh, leaving most of their legs and feet free to run and kick the soccer ball. Teams will be made up of 3-5 players (must be 18 and older), with 3 players playing for each team at once. There will be no goalies.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
The minimum cost to participate is $30 per player, which can be fundraised on this website. There will be prizes awarded to the winning teams as well as the top fundraising individuals and teams. EACH participant must sign up on this website. You can invite other team members once you create your own team. Each player will receive a t-shirt, lunch and beverages.
Teams will be guaranteed at least three games. Teams with the best records will advance to a single elimination bracket. Tie breaker will be number of goals scored. There will be two brackets: competitive and recreational.
Recreational bracket check-in will start at 9 a.m. with game play beginning promptly at 10 a.m. and wrapping up by 1 p.m.
