United Sports Seattle

the story


While there are LGBTQ specific chambers of commerce organizations for local businesses throughout the United States, the same can't be said for LGBTQ sports organizations. 

  • From an organizational perspective, organizations typically operate as islands and have to figure out things by themselves.

  • From a player perspective, when new people move to the area or if someone wants to try out something new, they typically have to either know in advance what they are looking for or have to try to search for it.


United Sports Seattle (USS) hopes to solve by of those needs by creating a forum that brings together the different LGBTQ sports leagues, clubs, and associations in the area,  in order to share resources, ideas, and provide networking opportunities.  We also will act as a resource to individuals by providing them the information about the different sports, leagues, and other activities that are available to them.

  • USS will be an available to help sports organizations that are looking to host a local, regional, or national tournament by connecting them to the resources that they will need to be successful.

  • USS also aims to maintain close relations with all of the local professional sports teams in order to be an available Diversity and Inclusion resource for them, but also to bring the teams and the local LGBTQ community more closely together.


Another key part of the USS mission is Youth sports by working to ensure that LGBTQ youth have the opportunity to participate and engage in safe, supportive space on the field playfield or by being available as a resource to provide Diversity and Inclusion training and awareness to existing youth programs.  We know that by representing the LGBTQ community within youth programs, we have the opportunity to positively impact the future of those individuals.

USS is not an expert by any means, but intends to pull together and share resources from across the city, the region, and the country to help fulfill its mission.
