Sibling Clubs

A Story of Relationships…

The reality is: no club ever truly lives in a vacuum. At Rain City Soccer Club we stand by our principles on forming a welcoming space for people of all backgrounds and take great strides to create real impactful change in the sport we hold so dear. But change isn’t just limited to our small corner of the world. RCSC was born from a team created to compete in the international Gay Games competition in Vancouver in 1990; our entire history is rooted in how we show up for ourselves, and how we impact others. Ever since our inception we have partnered with hundreds of sibling clubs and organizations all over the world to help contribute a voice and a narrative of how impactful our existence truly is. It is because of these bonds that we are able to accomplish everything we perceive possible. Some of our members call Seattle their permanent home, some don’t; however long or brief someone’s time is with us, we care and want to introduce them to a network of community and support. Below are just a few hundred national and international organizations we call family who share the lift in impacting the world of soccer.

A Story of Interconnection and Community Efforts…

What we do as a small cog in the global force to impact change is crucially important. That impact is a shared win, one that has repercussions in larger organizations and change comes slowly in the world. At RCSC, we believe the best approach is a conjoined effort: one focused on both the need to affect change in the global world of our sport, and doing our part to create change at home. RCSC is the only queer soccer club in the history of the Seattle area; that means we have a unique ability to be one of a handful of organizations that directly impact queer athletes here at home in the greater King County area. These efforts also do not exist in isolation – in fact there are dozens of queer sports organizations and alliances who call Seattle “home”. While we may not share a sport in common, we do share a love of sports, of community building, and friendly competition. Our members also don’t exist in a vacuum, many engage in multiple sports here in the Seattle area. We heavily encourage enrollment and engagement with our Seattle area queer sports sibling groups so that changes we advocate on behalf of our community are felt as universally as possible throughout our city and county. Here below is just a small sample of local organizations we are honored to also call family.
