As a club our primary focuses have always been: inclusion, representation, removing financial barriers for sports, celebrating pride by challenging “traditional” norms in soccer, and changing the language and rules regarding what “being on the pitch” really means. For many of our club members, it has been a journey as an adult to navigate back to the space that is our beloved sport, while also trying to carve out what being queer in these spaces mean. For many members, in their younger years, the joy of the sport has been lost in the pervasive, unwavering attitudes that queer players don’t belong in locker rooms, on teams, on pitches, and in sports. RCSC – like our sibling queer clubs –  challenge these antiquated ideas by placing inclusion and passion for the sport before all else.

Our events are open to everyone, regardless of identity, abilities to pay, or level of skill. We all share this crazy, unbridled passion for our sport, and look forward to every chance we get to share the field with those we love: for us, this is the true meaning of soccer. What you see listed here, is a small sample of some amazing photography done by professionals who partner with the club to make images available at no cost, so that members can not only have “action shots” of themselves, but also that we as a club, might document the joy that is queer soccer.
