After Co-Ed Footy we will head to Pie Day to celebrate with meat pies, drinks, and games. Details and tickets for Pie Day found here.

When: March 12, 2016 at 11 AM
Location: Bonita Cove Park at the Corner of W. Mission Bay Drive and Mission Blvd.  Directly across Mission Blvd from the Roller Coaster. Map Below.
What do I need?: We’ll supply all the gear all you need to do is come dressed to play in shorts and shoes (cleats if you have them, they are not necessary).

Co-Ed Footy Season Starts Feb 27!

The Lions Co-Ed Footy League Starts Saturday February 27, 2016!  All women and men are welcome to join us for the social non-contact version of our great sport!

What is Co-Ed Footy?

Imagine soccer, volleyball and basketball rolled into one cool game where everyone gets to be the quarterback at the same time. Another way to think about it is that Ausball is like Ultimate Frisbee, with a few twists. The ball is passed quickly from player to player by either handpassing or kicking. There is no turnover rule, so the ball is almost always “live” resulting in a fast, free flowing game where everyone is involved. Scoring is usually frequent, so games are not only fun to play, but fast and exciting to watch!

The rules are simple and easy to learn (it will take about 10 minutes) and NO EXPERIENCE is required. In fact, we encourage newbies as the game is designed for complete novices!

When: February 27, March 5, and March 12 at 11 A.M.
Location:  Doyle Elementary School:  3950 Berino Ct.  San Diego CA 92122  (Please note this is the field behind the elementary school not the field at Doyle Community Park.)  Map Below.
What do I need?: We’ll supply all the gear all you need to do is come dressed to play in shorts and shoes (cleats if you have them, they are not necessary).

There will be Social Events after each Co-Ed Footy Match culminating with our World Famous Pie Day on March 12, 2015!

Lions Celebrate Australia Day 2016!

Rob Aus DayThe Lions had a great day out Celebrating Australia Day 2016 at NTC Park with a family friendly picnic.  The Lions joined forces with the Australians in San Diego Club to have an all ages group of more than 80.  The picnic provided a great setting for everything from not-so-competitive Beach Cricket to Americans trying fairy bread for the first time.  The Lions also hosted a raffle of Aussie wares including Cadbury Chocolates, Vegemite, Aussie Wine, and Lions gear with proceeds benefiting the Lions.  It was a great day out, and a big thanks to the Aussies in San Diego Group!
