Pickup

Pickup is a game where people just show up and play. It is only somewhat organized. Recommended equipment is one white and one dark shirt, shoes or cleats, water, and possibly a disc.

Generally pickup in Indianapolis goes from late March to October. Basically when daylight saving time is in effect. Nice days in the winter attract players too. This is by no means a hard rule… we played in the snow last year. :)

Here is a listing of the known games in Indy and surrounding regions. There might be more out there… Click on “View Larger Map” to get directions from your very own house.

IUPUI

There is a game at IUPUI in the middle of campus every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. They play at the courtyard or Taylor Yard from 4:00 to 8:00. Non-summer (when school is in session) seems to be the best time to get a game.

Here’s a map showing the field location:
