Teams

Most of RCSC’s teams compete in the Seattle area’s public leagues, primarily:
Greater Seattle Soccer League (GSSL) & Recreational Adult Team Soccer (RATS) & Arena Sports League

Skill levels range from complete beginner/recreational to relatively competitive.

If you want to join a RCSC team, here’s what to do:

  1. Research each league to understand specific requirements and fees. Some details are determined by the team you play for (read on).
  2. If you know your CURRENT skill level assessment please feel free to contact your desired team’s manager with your soccer experience, skill-level, & contact information.
    1. Team details and their contact information are listed below.
    2. Team captains will provide you with details on if they are accepting new players, how to start playing, season/game dates, per player costs, locations, etc.
  3. If you do NOT know your current skill level, please attend a Skills Clinic or a Kickabout FIRST and inquire about getting a personalized skills assessment. That is what these programs are designed for.

The process of joining a team might take a little while depending on various factors including but not limited to: league schedules, roster capacity, and your own commitment and reliability, so please be patient with reaching out to or joining one of our amazing teams.

Can’t find a team you’re looking for? If you might want to start a new team, and get more queer players out on the field – you might not be alone! This is one of the most frequent questions we get asked: if you’d like some tips on how to navigate the registration process, gathering players, get your season started, please contact us so we can explain the process and offer advice – there is no such thing as “too many queer soccer teams”!

If you aren’t sure you’re ready to join a team, or don’t know your skill level for league play: come join our Sunday Kickabouts. Kickabouts are weekly 60-90 minute scrimmages with beginners to advanced players in attendance. Events are offered year around to help facilitate bonding and networking within the club. We also offer rotating Skills Clinics to help players learn or develop soccer skills.

Anyone attending any one of our programs or events who wishes to be assessed for skill level for joining a team, please reach out to one of our board members, or ask an event leader for an individual assessment!

    Information for Players New to Seattle Soccer

    RCSC is a club, not a soccer league, so we don’t control or manage game cost/fees, game schedules, rosters/sub processes, enforce rules, etc. Operations are handled by each of the team’s manager (a player’s primary point of contact) and the leagues of Seattle (non-profit, volunteer organizations). Players should direct their questions and interest in joining teams to the team manager. If there’s an opening on a team, the team’s manager will have specifics on how to register, cost, game locations, uniforms, player expectations, socializing, etc. Getting registered, paying, and other aspects of playing soccer are the responsibility of the player.

    In general, games are played across the Seattle area and usually 10-20 minute drive from downtown Seattle (e.g. the Space Needle). RCSC is unable to provide financial support or transportation to players, however everyone in the club is encouraged to connect with fellow teammates for carpooling and general assistance. RCSC only organizes the programs listed on our Events webpage and helps facilitate community teams by providing a communication path (this webpage) for players to join teams.
