Teams

Most of RCSC’s teams compete in the Seattle’s public leagues, primarily:
Greater Seattle Soccer League (GSSL)
Recreational Adult Team Soccer (RATS)
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. Contact your desired team manager (see below) with your soccer experience, skill-level & contact information. Team details and their contact information are listed below. Team captains can provide you details on if they are accepting new players, how to start playing, season/game dates, per player costs, locations, etc.

The process of joining a team can take a little while depending on various factors including league schedules, roster capacity, and your own commitment and reliability, so please be patient with the process to join on of these 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 and you’d like some tips on how to navigate the registration process, gathering players, get your season started, feel free to reach out for advice.

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.

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.
