Pride Season 2024

The deadline to customize your jersey is May 10th at 8pm.
Overall registration closes Thursday May 16th at 8pm.

Join us for the quintessential queer soccer series of the summer! Pride Season brings together players of all skill levels, for eight Friday-night games across June-August right in the heart of Capitol Hill. It is the only time of year where queer players play queer soccer on queer teams against other queer teams!

Registration is now open! Players can sign up to play in either the recreational of competitive league, and will be drafted onto a team they spend all 8 games with. Teams will be announced at the Draft Day Party roughly a week before the season starts – you’ll get your team jersey, meet your captain, and introduce yourself to the players you’ll be spending the summer with!


SEASON FORMAT

  • All games are at Bobby Morris Playfield at Cal Anderson park in Capitol Hill
  • Games will likely about 9 vs 9 players including the goal keeper. Rosters will likely be about 15 players. 
  • We will be using the entire Bobby Morris playfield, split into 2 half fields with both divisions playing concurrently.
  • 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.
  • Rules are found here – please read ahead of time and familiarize yourself
  • Games are 60 minutes (2x 30 minute halves with a 5 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.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

“I can’t commit to the full season – can I play part time? – Yes, asbolutely! 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 subbing. Players coordinate with their captains to determine what games they can attend and are randomized just like full-time players onto balanced teams for their division. 

“Are there any scholarships available?” – You bet! 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. No explanation of your financial situation is needed! If you need assistance, please DO NOT register yet. First, fill out the Club Assisted Registration Form, and you will receive an email with a custom promo code! Club assisted registration will run until registration closes.

“Registration is sold out or “Can I just go on a subs list?” – Subs are not permitted for Pride Season. Once registration is full, no new players can be added to teams or participate in the season unless a paid player resigns their spot. City contract and liability insurance binders limit the maximum number of players for field usage; therefore registration caps are beyond RCSC’s ability to affect. The club intends as always to do everything in it’s power to include those who wish to participate within the confines of adhering to city ordinances.
