This includes everything from balls and bases to nets and goalposts, so you can simply show up and start playing. However, we do ask that all players come dressed appropriately in athletic wear and cleats where necessary. Some leagues may have specific rules about bringing your own equipment, so we encourage you to check with the league rules before the game to avoid any confusion.

At MARC, we're committed to providing our members with a safe and enjoyable recreational sports experience, even in the face of inclement weather. In most cases, we will make every effort to play through adverse weather conditions, such as rain or wind, unless there is a danger of lightning. In the event that a game must be cancelled due to weather, we will notify you promptly by email or text message, so you can adjust your plans accordingly. If you have any questions or concerns regarding weather-related cancellations, we encourage you to reach out to your team captain, who will be able to provide you with more information and guidance.

What are the prizes for winning?

At MARC, we believe that winning should be celebrated, and we want to recognize the accomplishments of our league champions.
