Founded by Derek Goldingay, Co-Rec Soccer is for women and men who welcome the challenge of our style of soccer that encourages skill, strategy, and finesse over physical contact. The concept began in 1974 when Derek, as player / coach, founded the first men’s soccer team at the Evergreen State College and included women.
In 1982, we authored soccer's first “Reckless-Play” rules, coined the word “Co-Rec” instead of co-ed, and opened for play as the first co-ed soccer league in the state, with four teams that we created from the ground up.
As the largest adult league in greater Seattle, we have since managed up to 448 co-ed, men's, and women's teams per season, four seasons of the year, for 31 years running ...
Our proofreading procedure has resulted in scheduling every team to the right field, at the right time, in all of our games (over 149,000) since 1982. Customized schedules are designed around each team’s specific requests. Co-Rec Soccer employs four full-time office staff and 60 referees. Our referee confirmation system gives them an excellent attendance record.
Each season consists of 10 traditional full-field, 11 a-side games,
with 45-minute halves. Whether it's for the recreation and exercise,
or to compete with other top players, one of our 50 divisions will suit your team - join us!
