What kind of commitment is there?
We love to have fun, but we also like to win! For practices & scrimmages there really isn’t any commitment – just come out when you can and have a good time. However, for our competitive teams, commitment is crucial and we have waitlists to join these teams, so multiple no-shows without warning your team manager can lead to exclusion from a competitive team.

Can hetero allies join?
Absolutely! We have many allies playing with us.
How do I get on a competitive team?
Come out to practice/scrimmages and let us know if you’re interested in joining a competitive team. There is a waitlist to get on some teams, and we do require certain skills that the team managers will be able to explain and try to help you with.

Do you do anything besides play soccer?
Although our first love is the sport, we are a fun loving, community-involved group. From helping out with youth soccer leagues and hosting summer clinics for gay teens, to nights out on the town or camping in nature, we have a great time and do whatever we can to bring people together.
