RCSC organizes predominantly LGBTQ+ soccer teams in the Seattle area. Our goal is to provide members with a safe environment to meet people to play soccer and build community. RCSC’s Kickabout is a 90 minute recreational, friendly scrimmage welcoming all genders and orientations. Come join our soccer community! The purpose of Kickabout is to bring the joy of soccer to everyone while also enabling a low-cost model to eliminate barriers into the sport. Each week we are joined by a wide variety of skillsets and people from different backgrounds, often times our attendance range is from new people who have never touched a soccer ball before to players with over 30 years of experience. Our program leaders do 1-on-1 meet-and-greets with each new attendee and assess skill level and style of play along with welcome them to the club and introducing them to the community. Everyone who attends gets to play as much of the game as they wish, when attendance is high, we split into a multi-game structure that allows for balanced teams and everyone getting equal touches on the ball. Our leaders do a fantastic job dividing up each team with respect for a balanced skill set while also encouraging diversity and meeting new people.
Cold months are prone to strains, tears, bumps, and bruises, so please, whether you are early, right on time, or a tad late, MAKE SURE TO STRETCH AND/OR WARMUP before joining! So please, as a friendly reminder: bring plenty of layers to keep warm on AND off the field. We love each and every one of you, and want everyone happy and healthy!
Things to bring: any soccer gear you might have – and sunscreen, say no to skin cancer!
