President 2023-PRESENT
Kickabout Program Manager 2022

Hi all, I’m Salem! I made Seattle my home in 2021; I started playing AYSO when I was 4, and have played soccer for over 30 years since. My first weekend here, instead of unpacking, I joined RCSC Kickabout, and the rest is history. Our Kickabouts have always been the main introduction to the personality and inclusion of our club; it’s why I’m so passionate about the program. I hope to bring that same passion for the game along with a desire to make people feel heard, represented, and included so that the wonderful experience that is RCSC can be shared with everyone!

Skills Clinic Program Manager 2023-PRESENT

I have been involved in soccer for the past 35 years. I started playing when I was 12 and was hooked. I’ve played in competitive soccer clubs, high school and college level. I have also coached competitive soccer at many elite soccer clubs in AZ and here in WA. I coached at Grand Canyon University where I co-founded the woman’s program, held a national coaching license, and was co-director for soccer camps in AZ. Whether it’s coaching little kids, college age, or adults, my love for this sport is never-ending. I have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of Rain City Soccer Club since 2006 and have made some great friends along the way. I am looking forward to continuing that growth and development as Kickabout Program Co-Manager.

I’m Adam Vance and I’ve been playing soccer with Rain City Soccer for about five years now. I love the sense of community and belonging that comes along with being a member of RCSC. I hope to see the club continue to grow and add plenty of new players!

Community Engagement Director 2023-Current

Hello! I started playing soccer when I was five and fell in love with running around in the mud. I decided to take a break senior year of high school due to the toxic masculinity surrounding the league.  I first joined Rain City in 2022 and instantly felt comforted by the queer friendliness of the club. Some of my closest friends in Seattle have been from the RCSC teams. In my day job I help raise funds for various environmental NGOs, and am excited to apply some of that knowledge to strengthen our donor base for Rain City.

Communications Manager 2022-PRESENT
Kickabout Program Co-Manager 2023-PRESENT

I joined Rain City Soccer Club early 2022, a time where everyone was looking for community (particularly, queer community) – and RCSC was just the thing I needed! Since then, I’ve participated in Pride Season, joined the Purple Rain family of teams, and have had the honor of assisting Salem and Dekel with managing Kickabouts!

Shout out to everyone who found us by Googling “queer soccer seattle”.

Events Photographer 2022-Current

I joined RCSC as a photographer in 2022 as a way to connect my passions for art & the queer community. I love that RCSC creates a space for people of all backgrounds to participate and am honored to provide (sometimes) badass action shots. I am so grateful for the wonderful friends through Kickabout and the Purple Rain teams.

Community Program Manager 2023-PRESENT

Hi everyone! I grew up playing soccer but mostly stopped for a few years because of a lack of inclusive space to play and build community in. I joined Rain City Soccer about a year ago shortly after moving to Seattle, quickly realizing it was exactly what I had been looking for previously. Since then, I have joined multiple RCSC league teams and have made Sunday Kickabouts my home. I have a passion for community building and I’m always up for a chat on the sidelines or on the field, don’t be afraid to say hi!

Friendly Tournament Program Manager 2023-PRESENT

My name is Charlie, and I’ve been living in Seattle since 2019. I love it here, and the close proximity of friends I have established through RCSC is amazing! Seattle is one of the large cities of the world, yet it’s not hard to run into an RCSC member around Seattle on any given day. I joined RCSC in 2022 after finishing school and finding out what my real hobbies look like. They include community building, friendship, my partnership, and soccer! I’m an Earth Science professional at my day job, and I specialize in geology & geochemistry!

Pride Season Program Manager 2024

Hi all, I’m Sadie and I’m so grateful to be a part of Rain City. At every stage of my life and every place I’ve lived, soccer has always given me a home for meeting people, building relationships, and, of course, so much fun! Soccer is what brought me to my first queer community and I am so stoked to share queer soccer with all of you in Pride Season!

Grant Write 2024-Present

Hi all, I’m Imani! I’ve lived in Seattle since 2023 and started playing soccer for the first time in my life with RCSC the same year. I loved how inclusive the space was and how friendly everyone was to me as an absolute beginner. RCSC helped me find community quickly as a new Seattle-ite so I never had to experience the Seattle Freeze <3 I wanted to specifically be our grant writer to give back to my community and get some extra use out of my grad degrees!

BookKeeper 2024-Present

I have been playing soccer off and on since around five years old. When I moved to Seattle in 2020, it took a while to find my community and I was so happy to join Rain City Soccer for kickabouts in 2022. Being able to show up to play, watch, or just be with queer friends on a Sunday is such a joy. As an accountant in my career, being able to keep the books in order for the club I love is an easy task.

Website Administrator 2024-Present

Hi there, I moved to Seattle in 2018 and spent a lot of time looking for community. This winter I found that community. I immediately felt welcomed and appreciated all of the work the organizers were doing. I am eternally grateful to be part of such a great organization. I get to do the work I love on and off the pitch.
