Meet the Hosts
Just Play Hosts are the leaders of the community - Selfless players who strive to make our games excellent for everyone. Every Just Play game has a Host who turns up early, brings all the equipment and sets up the field. The Host divides the teams fairly and motivates players during the game. But most of all, they make sure everyone is having a good time!

Simon, a Team-Handball player from Switzerland, loves to play soccer at every time and location. Since he watched too many FC Barcelona games, his weakness on the field is that he prefers another pass over scoring an easy goal.
Originally from NJ, Ellee moved to NYC in 2013. You can always find her playing pick up outdoors, or her ultimate fav, futsal! She's definitely a more technical player with a killer toe poke. Overall, she loves the competition soccer brings and meeting awesome people is the cherry on top!
