Sport is a universal language
TC Jacks Soccer is a 501c-3 with the MISSION to use sport as a vehicle for positive change, providing public awareness, educational programming and tools, and the opportunity to play soccer to foster a more inclusive sports community. We mobilize Jacks to foster “allyship” and inclusiveness of others in their everyday and athletic endeavors.
We're seeking donations to directly benefit 4 HUGE initiatives:
- Offer low to no cost opportunities for LGBT persons qualifying through hardship application
- Attain the necessary insurance for our club to manage our women's team and other teams playing in MN Soccer.
- Continue outreach through print and online media to engage lesbian and transgender persons to play recreation soccer.
- Grow our organization's commitment and ability to support equal rights advocacy through the platform of sport.
Founded in 2007, the Twin Cities Jacks is the only LGBT soccer club in Minnesota. We field teams in local, national, and international tournaments, host social outings for LGBT soccer enthusiasts, promote the sport of soccer to the LGBT community, and combat homophobia through the platform of sport with advocacy and education.
Participating in TC Jacks activities is easy and open to everyone! We proudly welcome Allies to the LGBT community to join our team. In the spring, summer and fall, we host pickup soccer at a local park. Pickup soccer is for players of all skill levels. Whether you’ve never kicked a soccer ball or played all you life, pickup soccer will have something for you. It’s a free service to the community as a tool to learn, be healthy, be united and get involved.
For more experienced players, we field teams in the local leagues. And we travel around the world competing in tournaments.
