Rain City Summer PRIDE Season!

Pride Season is now on!!!! 

PRIDE SEASON is a soccer season dedicated to LGBTQ+ people and their and friends held in the central neighborhood of Capitol Hill during the beautiful summertime of Seattle.

This is amazing opportunity for queer folk of all skill levels and backgrounds to play soccer together weekly, build skills, and build community and friendships. We’re so excited you can join us!

  • Players will enjoy 8 weeks of games and other benefits.
  • Other benefits for players include weekly drink and food specials, weekly drag performances, a jersey, and an end of season party.
  • After games, there will always be post-game venues with food and drink specials for players and their fans to connect.
  • Join us in celebrating our 3rd year of Pride Season!!

FORMAT:

  • 8 teams will be inclusively drafted and announced about 1 week before the first week of games.
  • All games are at Bobby Morris Playfield at Cal Anderson park in Capitol Hill
  • Games will have a similar layout to Pride Season 2022, likely about 9 vs 9 players including the goal keeper. Rosters are roughly 17 players per team. We will be using the entire Bobby Morris playfield, split into 2 half fields, as has been done for kickabouts for the past several months.
  • Teams will be inclusive of all-genders, skill levels, and sexualities. This is a season to connect with each other and the community! Less experienced players will have the opportunity to learn from advanced players.
  • Games are 60 minutes (two 30 minute halves with a five-minute halftime).
  • Players can mutually choose one other player to be paired with. Both players must provide the names during registration. Only one pairing is allowed.

  • Player Meet & Greet / Jersey Pickup – Dragsters!
  • Week 1 – June 2

PRIDE SEASON WAITLIST

Missed out on registration but still interested in playing? Join the waitlist by emailing president@raincitysoccer.org. Players on the waitlist will be contacted if current players drop out or need to step back from the season.

PART-TIME REGISTRATION:

Are you only interested in or able to play a couple games during Pride Season? Sign up for part-time registration! By doing so, you can play up to 4 games this Pride Season and still get assigned to a team and a jersey in your indicated size! Part-time playing is distinct from free subbing. Part-time players have priority over subs for filling in for full-time players, and subs might only have access to large, extra jerseys.

SEASON VOLUNTEERS:

We need volunteer refs and setup/breakdown crew members.

Refs referee games in the opposite time slot as their own games (if they’re playing).

The setup/breakdown crew sets up fields (goals and cones) before games and takes supplies down after games.

If you are interested in any of these roles, please DO NOT register yet and email tybottorff@gmail.com. As a token of our appreciation, volunteers get to enjoy discounted registration!

CLUB ASSISTED REGISTRATION:

RCSC strives to make all of our activities as inclusive and accessible as possible. We’ve allocated a number of tickets to grant individuals needing assistance with participation and associated costs (for example parking). The past few years have been tough and we are a community that supports one another. These tickets will be prioritized to persons who may not have generational wealth or robust income or who have recently experienced an unforeseen hardship.

No explanation of your financial situation is needed! If you need assistance, please DO NOT register yet and email either of the following emails (prideseason@raincitysoccer.org, president@raincitysoccer.org) saying how much of a discount you need, and you will receive a promo code! Club assisted registration will run until registration closes.

SPONSORS:
