Now that Brooklyn Bridge Park’s got some brand new soccer fields, they’re ready to start filling them with players. Mini-future soccer stars ages 6 to 11 can sign up for the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy’s youth league at $25 a kid. If you didn’t spend your middle school soccer days subbing out so you could sit on the sidelines eating Oreos (like I did), you can join an adult league yourself.

It’s $130 per person to join the league, which is pretty reasonable by sports league standards, or you can slap together a team made up of 12 or less people for $1,300. The season runs from early March to the end of May and games are held Wednesday evenings starting at around 7pm. And if soccer’s not your thing, but you still want a chance to participate in some under-the-bridge sports, stay tuned: the Conservancy says they’ll soon offer volleyball leagues, swim clinics and a kayak camp, plus there’s always that climbing wall.
